Project Report | Oct 26, 2023
Fostering Transformation

By Jorge Perea | Head of International Relations

This report covers the work done at Fundacion Betania Juvenil from July to October 2023. Our main goal has been to transform the lives of our beneficiaries holistically. We are deeply grateful to you, our donors, for being a crucial part of this journey. Your generous support has led to meaningful actions in different areas, as outlined below. 

Breakfast Club: With the solidarity of our partners, a total of 12,000 nutritious breakfasts were distributed, achieving a 95% daily attendance rate among beneficiaries.

Arts & Crafts: Twelve art and craft workshops were conducted, nurturing the imagination and creativity of the children.

Academic Support: Twelve academic reinforcement workshops were held to address the areas where the children faced significant challenges.

Reading Promotion: Ten workshops were conducted to foster written and oral expression stemming from the children's imagination.

Socio-Emotional Development: Six workshops focused on bolstering self-esteem, emotional self-regulation, and decision-making among the children and adolescents.

Aid for Individuals in Extreme Poverty: Thanks to the local government's program, over 150 food kits were provided to individuals living in extreme poverty within the community.

Inclusion of the Elderly: Senior citizens were integrated into the Breakfast Club program, with workshops aimed at mental and physical activation to promote their overall well-being.

Family Strengthening: Four workshops were conducted with caregivers, focusing on the consolidation of emotional bonds, positive parenting, and promoting good treatment.

 

Challenges:

This quarter, our camera's low resolution limited our ability to upload many pictures, hindering visual documentation of our projects and community impact. However, a generous donor provided an iPhone just a few days ago. This new device will significantly enhance our photographic documentation, enabling us to share higher-resolution pictures showcasing the ongoing transformations within our community.

 

Highlighted Achievements:

Beneficiaries have adopted healthy eating habits, reflected in weight gain and improvements in their nutritional status.

Children have shown enhanced productivity in their academic journey, largely attributed to proper nutrition.

A 60% increase was observed in children's participation in the workshops.

Notable advancements in the psychomotor development of the children.

Significant improvements witnessed in the children's behavior and learning.

Remarkable increase in positive self-perception, self-esteem, and self-confidence.

Promoted practices of care and affection within the beneficiary families.

Established inter-institutional alliances to bolster social development projects.

 

We have achieved significant strides, creating a positive impact on our beneficiaries and their families. Your enduring support not only fuels our ongoing initiatives but also lays a robust foundation for our community's future. This report highlights the transformative change your generosity has enabled. Thank you for being an integral part of this continuing endeavor.
