I joined with a group of colleagues to develop the idea, and through a teacher we contacted United Way, who supported us to get the pilot school”, said Alessandra.
Also in the project, participate 50 4th grade volunteers. high school year. We do one event a week., where classes are taught 40 children of 4 a 6 years. From the 3:00 until 5:00 p.m., we offer english classes, maths, environment and physical activities. Our method is based on teaching in a fun way, so that children are motivated to learn”, explained the salvadoran.
Chiriati also said that the selection of children, who are benefited by the project, it is according to that age, since it is a critical stage in which minors must receive a strong learning base. “As we help children learn, We also create awareness in helping those most in need”, I continue the Salvadoran.
“Inspiring Minds”, started in June of this year and due to the positive impact it has obtained important results. The plan is to take this project to more public schools nationwide, to contribute to the Panamanian education system.
