The Mano a Mano para el Desarrollo program is preparing new booklets for reading comprehension, so that students can acquire new knowledge while at home with their families.
Most of the students turned in the reading brochures they worked on this week. It is up to them to do new exercises to keep them learning and make sure they do not fall behind in school, even as classes have been cancelled for more than 3 months.
The Mano a Mano program, in addition to providing reading exercises to our students, has also facilitated the use of a laptop for José Miguel who is a fourth-year student. He is currently receiving his school assignments through emails so the Mano a Mano program loaned him a laptop so that he can perform his tasks without problems.
Faced with this crisis, José Miguel continues to study the respective content for his academic training so he won’t fall beyond. This is not the case for every student. Lack of internet access and home computers mean that online learning is impossible for many students. Also, a lack of education on the part of parents means that they cannot always help their children with schoolwork. This is why we have tried to work hard to be sure that these barriers do not keep students from reaching their full potential and adapting to at-home school is one of the many challenges Coronavirus has brought. Thankfully with computers for loan and booklets that we have created, we can do a small part in continuing the education of the next generation while on lockdown.
