The coronavirus pandemic has had a devastating effect on children's learning, socialization and mental health in Guatemala. Since the pandemic started, over 40,000 Guatemalan children have deserted classes. In addition to missing school, children have been deprived of social contact with their peers during quarantine. Finally, children have faced worry about family members getting sick or recovering, anxiety as many of their parents have lost jobs and fear over losing loved ones.
Traveling participatory educational exhibits reengage children in the learning and socialization process while they have fun and relieve stress.
Hands on learning activities are not only more fun and engaging, allowing children to better absorb and remember what they are learning, but they also encourage interaction with nature, allow exploration of the 5 senses, engage multiple areas of the brain and promote the development of fine motor skills. Educational play today for a better Guatemala tomorrow!
