Project Report | Apr 5, 2013
April Update: Going strong in Chiapas

By Anna-Emilia Hietanen | Leader of International Resources

Our program “We want to stay in school!” in Las Margaritas, Chiapas, is going very well. In the last months, we have continued with the training of approximately 25 teachers in workshops on life skills (decision-making, self-knowledge, assertive communication, critical thinking, self-efficacy etc.), reduction of psychosocial barriers (fear, shame, guilt, resentment) and themes related to school performance. We have also given the teachers educational materials, such as “I want to, I can” textbooks and guidebooks.   

After participating in the workshops, the teachers have started to implement the program with approximately 600 pupils with the help of GlobalGiving and Yo quiero Yo puedo (IMIFAP). In this process, the facilitators of Yo quiero Yo puedo (IMIFAP) have made accompaniment visits to the teachers in order to support them, give them feedback and help to solve doubts so as to guarantee the quality of the implementation.

The teachers that participate in the program are very pleased with the program and the educational materials Yo quiero Yo puedo (IMIFAP) has developed for teachers and pupils in order to support the learning process. They have commented that the training and the materials have given them new educational strategies and didactic tools to work with their students and that they complement the Official Program of the Mexican Secretary of Education (SEP). There has also been synergies between schools in order to implement the program in an integral way that involves educational authorities, teachers, children and parents.

In this process, the support of the donors of GlobalGiving has contributed in an important manner in the continuous training and actualization of more teachers. This means that more children have been able to continue their studies and develop their life skills, a protective factor that helps to prevent many risk situations.

Thank you for helping us to construct a better future for the children of Las Margaritas! Together, we can make the world a better place.

Nuestro programa “Yo quiero, yo puedo… seguir estudiando” en Las Margaritas, Chiapas, va en buen curso. Hemos continuado con la formación de aprox. 25 docentes en talleres sobre habilidades para la vida (toma de decisiones, autoconocimiento, autoeficacia, comunicación, manejo de emociones, etc.), reducción de barreras psicosociales (pena, miedo, culpa, resentimiento) y en temas relacionados con rendimiento escolar. Hemos entregado a los docentes  materiales de apoyo como libros de texto “Yo quiero, yo puedo” y guías de trabajo.

 Los docentes, una vez formados,  han iniciado con la implementación del programa con aprox. 600 alumnos con el apoyo de Global Giving y Yo quiero Yo puedo (IMIFAP). En este proceso, los facilitadores de Yo quiero Yo puedo (IMIFAP) están realizando visitas de acompañamiento a los docentes durante la implementación para apoyarlos, darles retroalimentación y resolver sus dudas para garantizar la calidad de la réplica. Los docentes nos han comentado que están muy contentos con el programa y con los materiales educativos que Yo quiero Yo puedo (IMIFAP) ha desarrollado tanto para docentes como para los alumnos para apoyar el proceso de aprendizaje. Dicen que les brindan nuevas estrategias educativas y herramientas de trabajo para llevarlas a cabo con sus alumnos y complementan el Programa Oficial de la Secretaria de Educación Pública (SEP). Asimismo se han creado sinergias en los planteles educativos para llevar el programa de manera integral que involucra a autoridades educativas, docentes, niños, madres y padres de familia.

En este trabajo, el apoyo de los donantes de GlobalGiving ha contribuido con una parte importante para seguir formando y actualizando  a más docentes y de esta manera poder ofrecer a más niños y niñas y tengan oportunidad de seguir estudiando y desarrollar sus habilidades para la vida como factores protectores para prevenir situaciones de riesgo.

¡Gracias por ayudarnos a construir un mejor futuro para los niños y  las niñas de las Margaritas! Juntos podemos construir un mejor mundo.
