Educating Educators





History Logs

Project Description

Region: South America

Country: Colombia

Location: Rio Mira-Tumaco

Total Budget: $37,015

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Raise the level and quality of knowledge through training in values, basic use of technology, pedagogy, correct management of caring for the environment, to 39 teachers from colleges and schools in the Río Mira sector, correcting the current deficiency reflected in low academic level and motivation.The little attention given to these institutions, the little motivation and lack of opportunities to update knowledge and the low level of teacher pedagogy, has meant that students do not have a quality education, thus causing school dropouts, low motivation and few opportunities for innovation and progress for both teachers and students and the community in general. We found communities in a state of illiteracy due to a lack of trainers. Through this education strategy we will ensure that self-esteem, empowerment, vocation and passion for what they do is recovered.Timeline is 12 months.


How will you invest the money received through a possible global grant? Please reflect the total value.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
