Educational Programs

 

Remar NGO Educational Program

The socio-economic situation to be found in the majority of the developing countries has multiple consequences, and this can be reflected clearly in the sector of education. In these countries the level of illiteracy is extremely high, and the educational system in general is of a low quality and coverage.

 

Educational Programs

 

The state schools are insufficient in number for the very high child population, and in many cases their standards do not satisfy the requirements of a basic education. Private profit-making schools provide a very expensive alternative, but the monthly fees they demand are beyond the economic means of the majority of the population.

In this context REMAR took the initiative to create its own schools. These do not only solve the problem of education for the children living in our homes, but also, at the same time, form a strategic plan to benefit the school-age population in those areas where REMAR is active.

REMAR has opened schools in Angola, Burkina Faso, Mozambique, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. Here both the children from our homes and those who live in the neighbourhood are offered pre-school, primary and secondary education. At present we are providing education for more than 5,000 children, with plans to enlarge the existing schools and to create new ones, in a response to the huge demand for schooling in these countries.

Through these schools, REMAR combats illiteracy and social need amongst children and helps to give them the opportunity of stepping out of a hostile, delinquent environment. They receive a good education that prepares them to face up to the demands of society and teaches them to develop sound principles, criteria and values which help to form their own self-identity and their behaviour in relation to institutions and to society itself.

 

 

OBJECTIVES AND GOALS FOR EDUCATION

 

To carry out the teaching-learning process differently from in formal education, allowing the comprehensive development of the child in the intellectual, emotional, social and physical areas.

To develop a syllabus with a good academic level in order to meet the requirements of society.

To select a trained staff for teaching at each of the established grades, thus creating teaching posts in countries with a high level of unemployment in this area.

To provide training for the children and, as a consequence, to achieve positive changes in their behaviour.

To work constantly towards encouraging hygiene and habits of good order in the children.

To encourage principles, criteria and values to support the self-identity and actions of the children in relation to institutions and society in general.   

 

CHARACTERISTICS OF OUR SCHOOLS

    1. Environment. REMAR schools have a healthy, safe, protective and gender-respecting environment. The environment is protective and stimulating, allowing the children to achieve their goals. Our schools are adapted to the children's needs with an education that will prepare them for active participation in society..

    2. Educational content. With programmes and materials suited to their age. The boys and girls are taught the basics, particularly in the fields of literacy and arithmetic, they are given a preparation for daily life and they acquire knowledge on topics such as gender, health, nourishment, HIV/AIDS prevention, peace and other national and local topics of priority.

    3. Teaching methods. The teachers use child-centred approaches, in well-managed classrooms and schools. They make competent assessments that facilitate the learning process and reduce disparities..

    4. Results. We encompass knowledge, skills and behaviour all at the same time, linking them to national objectives for education and active participation in society

    5. Personal support. In our schools, apart from the educational support provided, we care for the physical, mental and emotional health of the children: their changing moods, sentiments of success and failure, of rejection, times of special difficulty, etc etc. 

    6. Moral upbringing. In our schools, not only do we provide quality academic education, but also we go beyond that, teaching universal values such as solidarity, tolerance and justice…. The boys and girls of today will become the men and women of tomorrow, committed towards the reality that surrounds them, but in order to reach this point, we have plenty of work still to do.
