Summary

The pandemic is causing gaps in learning, increasing school dropouts and inequality, which will affect children into adulthood. The situation in rural communities, is even more devastating since families don't have internet access to continue children's education and parents have lost income. This project aims to overcome the educational lag and keep children interested in learning, in outdoor and sanitized space, where they can freely explore and discover; share and learn with proper guidance.

Challenge

The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting children education severely. In Mexico, it is causing lags in learning and increasing school dropouts, especially in the poorest areas where families must spend their days with their children trying to find food. Many of these children will not return to school as we begin to return to normal. The situation in San Miguel Viejo, a rural community on the outskirts of San Miguel de Allende in Central Mexico is even more devastating since families have lost income

Solution

For more than 10 years, Ojala Ninos offers a successful after-school program to more than 100 children in the community of San Miguel Viejo. Now, we want to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on learning, using an integrated and interactive learning processes, in outdoor lessons and with health safety measures, about Science, Technology, Arts, Mathematics and Reading Encouragement, so children can improve their critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, communication, and creativity skills.

Long-Term Impact

This program will offer the life-skills needed to prepare children to take their rightful place in the economic order, such as: sowing seeds in a garden and taking care of chickens to promote food self-sufficiency, learning digital skills, studying mathematics and English, encouraging reading and, promoting artistic expression, music and dance. These skills will contribute to their own development, the wellbeing of the community and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
