How do we close the school year in July?

This program seeks that the girls, boys and young people of the EDUCA RED become agents of change through the strengthening of individual identity and the responsible exercise of their economic and social rights, improving their quality of life.


  • 6 states of the country
  • 16 schools
  • 124 teachers
  • 3,371 students
  • 5,057 parents

- 35 hours of class were taught per school.
- 1,581 books delivered from 1st to 4th grade and 1,790 guides
for students delivered from 5th grade from elementary to high school.
- 124 teachers and coordinators trained: 8 hours of initial face-to-face training and 135 hours of counseling and monitoring in 2 follow-up visits to each school.
- The program coordinator attended the Aflatoun International Training held in Quito, Ecuador, lasting 40 hours, on the Aflateen + Tools for Life and Financial Education curriculum, which offers a gender and sexuality approach, with a reproductive health and rights component.
- EDUCA participated as a panelist in the Aflatoun International Conference held in Amsterdam, sharing the experience of implementing the program, particularly the scope of the Entrepreneurship that young people carry out, as a success story in the Region of the Americas.
- To celebrate Aflatoun Day 2019, students of Boys and Girls de la Sierra, I.A.P., and the Instituto de Educación Integral, I.A.P. San Juan Pablo II Plantel Jurica, communicated via Skype with children and youth from Children International Ecuador, and schools in Colombia and El Salvador.
- 105 boys and girls, and 12 teachers from 3 schools visited the Visit to the Interactive Museum of Economics (MIDE).
- We update and redesign the materials for teachers and students. 4 new materials were generated: Student guides, Teacher guides (by grade level), Catalog of teaching strategies and Generic guide.
