Our students have stopped attending school due to COVID-19. This project's goal to help the children from our school to complete their education online. We will bring internet to their households and help their families as well.
According to UNICEF there are currently 400 million kids around the world that haven't been able to access education due to COVID-19. The World Health Organization, Harvard University, and Minnesota University predict that this pandemic could last more than 2 years. In "La Comuna" Ecuador 67% of our students don't have internet access in their houses to complete their online education program. This program would bring internet to 154 students and 52 families.
NINOS DE MARIA FOUNDATION provides quality education, family training, and small business development programs during these hard times. Over 24 years we've impacted more than 10,000 families and educated over 4,781 children.
The project will provide education for 150 children which will provide opportunities for future success. The Foundation promotes family training programs and the possibility to start small businesses that would help the finances of the family. We also will raise awareness of and fight against domestic abuse in our community.
