Educational and nutritional gaps exacerbated by COVID-19 are the focus of this project.
In the impoverished rural hamlet of Nuevo Mocupe, Madre Oliva Association will provide these children with afterschool educational reinforcement and a nutritional snack 6 days a week. Families in greatest need will receive additional food aid to offset skyrocketing food prices. Therapists will offer workshops every two months to the children’s parents on topics such as mental health, how to detect learning disabilities, COVID-19, and parent-child relationships.
This project also includes purchase of a computer and printer to strengthen the ability of Madre Oliva Association to carry out this and other projects.
Our thanks to the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph in Canada for their support of this project.
