Overcoming statistics' reality through hard work

By Gabriela Solis | Project Leader

Learning can and should be fun!
Learning can and should be fun!

Hey there, GlobalGivers! We’ve had a very busy trimester, but that is nothing but good news to us: being able to positively impact more children and adolescents in building an integral education is what drives us, and we are able to do this thanks to your commitment and support.

On November 2015, Mexico’s Ministry of Public Education released the National Plan for Evaluating Learning (PLANEA, its acronym in Spanish) results. PLANEA is a large-scale standardized test that evaluates the key learning curriculum in the fields of training related to language and communication and mathematics that are common to all evaluated. Its main purpose is to provide relevant, timely and contextualized information to schools and teachers, to help improve their teaching practices and learning of all their students. The results are critical:

Mexico has a huge challenge: our country must improve the quality of its education in a comprehensive way (materials, teachers, students, didactical techniques) if it wants to achieve a sustainable social and economic development. At IMIFAP, we are proud to be part of the solution! This time, we want to tell you about our most recent activities in Coahuila and Tlaxcala:

"I want to, I can... learn, develop my talents and have fun at school": Our work with 17 elementary schools in Coahuila with The Caterpillar Foundation support aims to promote life skills, school performance, healthy lifestyles, pregnancy prevention, violence prevention and equity gender for elementary school students.

In September, we started to implement a 40 hour training workshops for 28 professors who teach 6th grade. The subjects are: life skills, violence and sexuality. The training will end by December 11 and these teachers will be implementing the program with approximately 891 students.

Our program integrates knowledge and skills desired at home and in school, through a comprehensive approach in which the different actors of the people involved in the educational context is included: teachers, mothers / parents family and children.

"I want to, I can... learn, develop my talents and have fun at school": In Tlaxcala, we are working with 10 elementary schools to motivate and excite children from 4th grade into scientific and technological thinking, in order to arouse the scientific curiosity. We aim for kids to understand the uses of chemistry both in daily life and in the resolution of medical, nutritional and environmental problems in favor of human progress and sustainability.

In October, we started to implement a 23 hour training workshops for 17 professors who teach 4th grade. The subjects are: life skills and chemistry. The training will end by December and these teachers will be implementing the program with approximately 500 students.

Thank you for continuing to support the education of Mexican children! We are nothing but encouraged to keep working towards strengthening the social fiber and community networks through education.

See you next time with more awesome results and happy Holidays!
