This community has limited funding and faces many challenges, socially and economically. This project focuses on empowering and supporting the local community of El Cocal to tackle social and economic challenges and help implement solutions, designed by them. Solutions include infrastructure, minority inclusion, alternative income generation, education, healthy habits and conservation.
In Costa Rica was a general stike and all the public schools including the one in Cocal close gates around six month. The children did not have classes during all this time and they are behind in their subjects, so the school needs support to recur items and generate materials that allow regularizing the children and reach what is required for the grade they passed.
This project works to support in generate materials, resources and a new plan that allows the kids regularizate and learn more about their community. Also, as we know, most of the GVI's volunteers are not teachers, and this materials and resources will help them to be more prepared for their lessons and activities in the community.
Have different lessons plans organized by theme, including environmetal activities, knowlage of their community, and important subjets that they have in school, in order to be the support for doing homework and help with contents they struggle with.
