STUDENT AID PROGRAM

The Rotary Club of Retalhuleu run a student aid program since over 40 years helping children to study instead of working because their families in extreme poverty can not afford it. Each student receives a $200 annual economic support, school supplies package, monitoring of school assistance, performance and participation, nutricional profile and 3 checkups yearly, medical support when needed and psychological motivation talks from preschool to high school. The program intends to help more students in our community, Retalhuleu.

Empowering rural youth in Nicaragua to spur economic development in their communities through the Tutorial Learning System

Empowering rural youth in Nicaragua to spur economic development in their communities through the Tutorial Learning System
In rural Nicaragua, youth continue to face limited access to relevant and high-quality secondary and technical education programs that can lead to economic and community development. To break this cycle of poverty, rural communities need human capital capable of spurring economic development. The Tutorial Learning System (SAT, its acronym in Spanish) is an alternative, rural education model that provides rural youth with the knowledge and skills to continue their education, improve their farming methods, and to generate a sustainable income. The key objective of this project is to provide access to a quality secondary education and technical training through the SAT program for 200 rural Nicaraguan youth from Somoto, Nicaragua.

We present a video that showcases the SAT program in action.

Access to early and primary education for children from underserved communities in Nicaragua

Access to early and primary education for children from underserved communities in Nicaragua
Despite advances in expanding access to basic education throughout the country, experts argue the advance of primary education coverage has been achieved at the expense of providing quality education that can lead to relevant and effective learning outcomes.

This project will support the education process of 100 under privileged children in preschool and primary school in Somoto, Nicaragua, through personalized, age-appropriate teaching methodologies. It aims to contribute to the reduction of educational gaps by promoting the development of life skills such as literacy, logical-mathematical reasoning, as well as critical and creative thinking. Through play-based methodologies, Fabretto teachers stimulate the learning process to successfully achieve the next stage of education.
