What is Con Pazion’s current status and the plans for the future?
We are active in two communities in Manchay where we work with 150 children and their families. We are teaching classes in an existing state preschool and we work in two communal centers. The classes we teach are aligned with our holistic curriculum:
We are planning to start the pilot project for our primary school as soon as possible. During the pilot project we are offering daily after school classes working with max. 150 children consistently. We will transmit knowledge and develop skills with a holistic vision, which includes environmental awareness, creations of organic gardens, nutrition and health, empowerment, yoga and mindfulness, life skills and values. Help children with their homework, promoting a co-curricular space that promotes and offers the opportunity to evolve and master cognitive information, as established in the national curriculum, using our own methodology. We will measure and monitor the results and impact of our students' learning, in addition to the implementation of the methodology. Involve the community in the activities carried out in favor of enhancing the competencies of our students. During the pilot project we’ll measure and monitor the impact of our teachings, we’ll train our teachers and we’'ll develop our holistic curriculum and construct our sustainable school building.
We are planning to open our first holistic primary school in March 2020.
For the future we are dreaming of replicating our school to other disadvantaged areas of Lima and to other places in Perú. We believe many kids worldwide can benefit from this innovative approach. Lima is just the beginning, we dream of expanding globally to continue the movement.
