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.
