Fundación Crece Latinoamérica sponsors “One Laptop per Child” program


With the aim of providing students and teachers at La Misericordia multi-grade school in the community of El Bale, province of Veraguas, with a technological tool to close the digital gap and ensure significant improvements in the teaching-learning process, Fundación Crece Latinoamérica in partnership with Pro Niñez delivered on June 21 one XO computer to each child attending the school.


The program includes training for teachers and classroom support, as well as regular performance measurement, particularly in the areas of literacy and math. Initial beneficiaries include 25 students with a projected growth to 50 students and two teachers. Indirect beneficiaries are the children’s parents and siblings, who will be able to access the equipment the children may take home.
