Taking Tin Marin to ALL Children of El Salvador

by Asociacion Museo de Los Ninos Vetted since 2016


Tin Marin embodies the Good News about El Salvador. Children have fun learning through play. Self-confidence, curiosity and an array of skills are built through unique experiences. Our challenge is taking Tin Marin to 350 schools across El Salvador. We've raised money locally to develop and test our plan and build our Mobil Museum. Now we are going global to crowd source a year's operational costs. You can make a big difference!

Public schools across El Salvador need help making elementary education fun, engaging and effective. Teachers need support from the community as well as new tools that work in the highly stressful environment that permeates the country. The challenge is how to engage the hearts and minds of children, families and teachers in Central America - how to teach skills and attitudes to children that will have a positive impact on families over the next several decades..


Children's museums across the Americas have experience with an important component of education - experiential learning and learning through play. This project will take that experience from the museum setting of the capital city, to 350 schools across El Salvador. It will demonstrate successful engagement of children, train and coach teachers and parents, and introduce simple tools to measure outcomes.

Long-Term Impact

What children learn today will shape what they will teach the next generation. A positive, constructive intervention today will have a tremendous impact on the world tomorrow. Children who experience cooperation and compassion, who learn critical thinking and interpretation, and who are free to use their imagination and creativity will, over time, build the new world. Join us and together we'll make a significant long-term difference throughout Central America.
