It has been almost three months since Nicaragua reported its first instance of COVID-19 and as cases here continue to rise, la familia Fabretto remains committed to working together to find innovative ways to serve some of the most impoverished communities of Nicaragua.
In order to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our students and staff, during this time, Fabretto has made significant strides in reinventing the ways in which we deliver education adapting to the unique context of each community we serve. These efforts include:
Developing key resources, including guides for teachers and parents, worksheets, audiobooks, videos, and apps.
Distributing printed study guides and handouts for students, as well as instruction manuals and videos for parents to facilitate in-home learning.
Implementing the use of digital tools like Google Classroom, G-Suite, WhatsApp, and screen-recording software to deliver lessons.
Compiling lists of online resources like ProFuturo for teachers, parents, and students alike.
We are concerned about the impact that COVID-19 and the economic consequences of the crisis may have on the health and wellbeing of the families we serve. For this reason, Fabretto has also responded by sharing key health messages with staff, teachers, parents, and students. In addition, Fabretto has distributed relief packages of food products and hygiene supplies to families, and we expect to continue distributing packages of much-needed supplies to families in need during the coming months.
We are inspired by the commitment and creativity of our staff who are making all of this happen from a distance despite facing numerous logistical challenges. We truly believe in the power of education in times of crisis, but we need your help to continue to bring education to our students’ homes. Together, we can make an extraordinary difference in the lives of children, youth, and their families in Nicaragua.
