2019 – Technology and Training for Quality and Equality Project in Bosawas, Nicaragua

The Technology and Training for Quality and Equality Project in Remote Indigenous Communities will pilot the operation and impact of a technology-enabled, innovative, off-line training program and digital resource base in remote, indigenous communities to improve teacher capacity, the quality of classroom educational resources, and gender equality.

In 2019, Viaduct Foundation made a contribution to Change for Children‘s initiative, “Training for Quality and Equality Project in Bosawas, Nicaragua”. This project continues to build on Change for Children’s expertise in the use of RACHEL systems in remote areas. You can read more about this project on their website; click the image or here.

“Change for Children has been working in the BOSAWAS region for over 20 years to support health, economic development and education projects, including in the construction of secondary schools. However, education in the indigenous BOSAWAS villages continues to be the poorest in the country. This project aims to improve the quality of education for students in one of the most remote areas of the world through innovative RACHEL technology. The project’s ultimate objective is improved quality education, gender equality, and learning outcomes for female and male students in the BOSAWAS Biosphere Reserve.”

Due to the pandemic, the implementation of this program was significantly delayed in 2020. However, in mid-2021 the program will enter the second phase (NOT the second wave!) and Viaduct Foundation will continue to support this project.

Education is one of our top priorities in the fight against poverty. It is the key that unlocks other human rights. There can be no lasting change without it.
