Thus, to contribute to improving quality education through LTP strategies, the project has a positive impact on children’s development in early education services, preschool to third grade, and strengthens families and communities who have historically been affected by violence.
In essence, all organizations arrived at Caquetá to benefit more than 790 teachers, besides 12,704 direct students and 12,200 indirect students.
Moreover, the project involves local and national government decision-makers, the academic community, and civil society to achieve quality education and promote learning opportunities in Caquetá.
Under a co-construction with communities, the project has developed a capacity-building model for teachers to strengthen pedagogical practices through a broader vision of LTP. As a result, it eases positive and joyful learning experiences for children under eight years of age. Likewise, a process in which the knowledge and voices of the department’s teachers and leaders of the educational system have been gathered.
Besides, the model is supported by LTP tools for teachers and families, and to strengthen government programs like the “Everybody learning program” and MAS+.
Similarly, joint work with audiences, such as teachers, families, and decision-makers, has left a message the project wants to disseminate: “Weaving networks for children in Caquetá.“
