The Zaña Valley team has developed an after-school program for children from 6 to 13 years of age in Aviación, Mocupe and Zaña. Each program, led by a trained teacher, addresses the social, cognitive, artistic and nutritional needs of approximately 20 participating children. Support in reading, mathematics and art, along with a nutritious snack, is provided daily. Additional resource staff, including a psychologist, give workshops in such topics as self-esteem, feelings and emotions, positive leadership and healthy eating. Liaison is maintained with the participating children’s schools, where significant improvement has been noted in the behaviour and learning of many of the children.
