Challenge

Many adolescents in rural areas drop out of high school because of the great distances they must travel from home to school, often on foot, back and forth every day. In the case of girls, the problem is greater, due to the risks of abuse they may suffer along the way. In addition the low quality and practicality of the national school system which does not help to get out of poverty, besides conflicts between school hours and agricultural cycles, when students skip school to help their parents

Solution

Our education model provides boarding at school, this avoids daily transfers home. In the period they spend at home the students help their parents, and do tasks already described. So, teachers focus on their academic subjects for the daily challenges of the families, which allows innovate and improve the production and commercialization of the product of the farms, helping them to escape from poverty. Project seeks to train teachers and parents to work in unison caring both: school and farm.

Long-Term Impact

We started first 3 schools with 60 students in 2002. Today totalize 75 schools with 5,400 students. Many of the graduates have gone on to higher education in institutes and universities. The improvements in the production and management of the family farm are expanded little by little in the community, either by imitation or by the advice given by students and graduates to their neighbors. Your support will ensure that more schools as these to grow in Peru.
