The Asociación La Restinga works towards the improvement of educational quality and graduation rates in the Belen neighbourhood of Iquitos, Peru.
Each year the project runs seven teacher training workshops, weekly classroom evaluations, weekly student academic reinforcement workshops (two times per week, lasting three hours each), and four parent workshops. The hired teachers also visit the homes of all 45 students selected to be included in the program, to ensure that the topics covered in the student and parent workshops are implemented in the home.
Alma has been supporting La Restinga since 2015. We pay for two full-time educators and educational materials in order to implement teacher training, classroom evaluations, academic reinforcement workshops for students, and parent workshops for the Belén neighbourhood of Iquitos.
