Hello, we are very happy to share this information with you:

In the midst of the pandemic, many children in Costa Rica were sent home with a vacation intermission, our Foundation did not stop efforts to learn from home during vacations and in alliance with BAC Credomatic promoted Financial Education issues for the boys, girls and their families.

In addition, the Quirós Tanzi Foundation provided workshops for teachers, they also had the opportunity to join workshops where they could expand their knowledge and if they did not manage to coincide with the scheduled times, the material was sent to their emails, we always have a repository of the material educational and training we provide.

The Workshops are 100% free
On Mondays there were workshops for children
On Wednesdays, the workshops were for teachers (public and private education teachers)
Thursdays were Financial Education Workshops for children and their families.

We deeply appreciate every donation that drives, strengthens, and moves us forward with workshops, education, and knowledge acquired online.

Hello Everyone!

This report has been one of the ones that we have thought the most to share with all of our loyal project donors, we are very excited to share with you these great: challenges, tests and lessons learned from: How to connect schools and children from all over the world online Costa Rica?

Last year they put us to the test with everything we had worked for, in the face of a pandemic that we knew how long it would end, we put our engines to maximum and decided to give everything to the inevitable.

We want to share that our Foundation managed to connect approximately 30% of its total population of beneficiaries to interact through online classes.

We are also excited to close our year 2020 by sharing that our courses and trainings were published on our social networks, uploaded to our YouTube channelsFacebook and weekly Webinars where 298,913 people participated in total.

Our work has been a great challenge that made us grow exponentially, benefiting teachers, children and families in any part of the country who were able to connect and learn.

7% of the people who visited our social networks are foreigners, news that makes us much happier, because our training is reaching beyond our borders.
Finally we leave you some videos of our teachers and children who are part of our project, thanks to you for your support, without your donations our work is not possible.

Our favorite phrase: "Thank you for supporting us in the most difficult moment, because that is when we need it most"

This year has been a GREAT year! For the Quirós Tanzi Foundation team and personally I think that: for everyone, this year he has been a strict teacher who put us to the test and made us reinvent ourselves at the speed of light.

In our case, it has put us to the test with our reason for existing: How prepared were our schools to guide them towards virtual classes?

Faced with many tests such as: connectivity, equipment, uncertainty, fear and the desire of the boys to "return to normal at school."

This year definitely put us to the test and we have managed to achieve excellent results from a path that had many obstacles to reach the goal we set for ourselves in January 2020.

The schools in our project have studied online during the pandemic and connected to learn.

We sincerely appreciate your donations and that you have thought of our Foundation as the # 1 option to help and be part of the change, we continue to ensure that access to technology and conditions to study in Costa Rica are the best.

We share some photos of our adventure to educate and train school children online.

Big hugs from all the Quirós Tanzi Foundation Team.
