The project is to empower rural mothers as instructors and co-educators by training a minimum of 14 mothers from 5 rural schools in strategies to improve cognitive and social skills.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Direct beneficiaries are 14 rural mothers and 42 children. Indirect beneficiaries are 60 rural mothers and 241 children. Total beneficiaries are, therefore, 74 mothers and 283 children.

How will this project solve this problem?

Training mothers in strategies to improve skills and social development. Trained mothers then train peers at their children's schools. Establish a library with Strategy Handbooks. Newly trained mothers repeat above steps.

Potential Long Term Impact

After the program, the 14 rural mothers will go to 5 schools and teach what they have learned to other parents. As a result, 140 families altogether will be trained in cognitive stimulation skills.
