Here are some projects we've been involved in
In 2018, Superkids piloted a new initiative called "Niños Profes" to empower children to rise up and support each other. The program had several goals: 1) to provide peer tutoring to small children at-risk of growing up illiterate, dropping out of school, or engaging in child labor, 2) to provide peer mentorship and support during recess time, and 3) to develop a generation of child leaders who are empowered to take action in their communities.
The Project Results as the outcome of their pilot program, which in part utilized a Friends of Paraguay grant, were:
- They taught a 20-hour workshop to 10 children aged 8-13 years of age
- They conducted another 20-hours of coaching as the children practiced with 40 younger students
- They helped 40+ children make progress within level A. Niños Profes collectively taught more than 529 hours in three months
