The organization CooperarPeru opened the school center in April 2011 in the community of Tankarpata and since then, we receivechildren aged from 3 to 15 years old. We started with 12 children and we now have more than 50 children registered in our school. With the support and donations of many volunteers, we built a library. In that manner, the older children can do their homeworks, having the opportunity to consult dictionaries, history books and encyclopedia, while at the same time, the youngest children are reading. Besides our library, we have a room that we call “the lounge” in which we organize activities, working group sessions, campaigns, theatre, dance, meetings and more.
Reinforce the development and academic performance of children of Tankarpata
Support and academic reinforcement: this space is created in order to avoid academic failure, to try to reduce the lack of attention and to improve academic performance and methods of study of children. This is a project which combines academic and social aspects, since it is an area where children can personally develop through various dynamics and activities.
Revision and educational strengthening support in the academic homework, teaching languages, handicrafts and other creative activities, in the open, games and group dynamics.
Provide appropriate information about the various topics regarding Health
Reunions with mothers: aThese informative reunions take place once a month. We try to give families the main information and useful tools to prevent and fight against the various common diseases. It is mostly due to the lack of nutrition and personal hygiene ( intestinal parasites, lice, flea…)
Building habits of hygiene: everyday, children have a special area in the Support Center to be able to wash their teeth and their hands. Every Monday, we help children to cut their nails. Sometimes, there is a time for washing their hair or for nitpicking.
Direct aid to families with specific problematic regarding Health: intervention at home and accompaniment to different institutions.
Emphasize self-realization and promote an appropriate community development
Reunion with families: area in which different problems are treated with families. Mothers can also share their concerns regarding family education and other topics.
Psychological work with children and families: we work with children with various working group activities while with parents, we organize reunions and visits at home.
Working with institutions: our organization made contact with different institutions (Cusco Medical Assistance) and organizations (ONG Amauta, ONG Cenprodic, Misión Quechua, Enigma Perú) in order to obtain basic things for the community development. Between different things, the most important are services of collecting trash and access to drinking water.
Every year, children are the first to suffer from the cold during the winter. That is why we organize a donation of warm clothes.SEE MORE
