  • We train indigenous children and youth in illiteracy or low educational levels who are at risk of child begging or illegality to return to schools.

     

    In our Community Schools program they learn to do math, science and technology while creating music, paintings, stories and short films. 

    We base the STEAM educational model on their culture, we make schools easy to engage with, fun and meaningful, so that their first time in education motivates them to continue and not return to the streets.

    This ensures that we return to schools and retain more than 500 children and youth at risk of dropping out every year.
