100% of the children we serve have access to activities and spaces that promote a better coexistence with their peers and significant others, based on principles of respect and empathy for equality.
The development of soft skills has become a very important transversal axis in all the work we do. When promoting gender equality among children is most important to equip them to develop self-control and other soft skills such as empathy. And it is crucial to do it in all interaction spaces and activities. An example is the Spanish workshops based on the reading of the book The Little Prince, in which in addition to literacy, we also encourage them to look into the socio-emotional aspects addressed in the book.
Also, some specific initiatives where equality was addressed, were the participation of sixth graders in a consultation carried out by UNICEF on issues such as migration, discrimination, xenophobia, and how to promote inclusion in educational and social spaces; and workshops implemented in coordination with the Office of Prevention of the Municipality of San José for the development of executive skills. In our daily work, we also use cooperative work and games to teach kids the importance of self-control, respect, and empathy when the expected outcome is success and wellbeing for all.
