Charles is speaking at
This conversation between El Negrito Mayor Delvin Salgado (in Spanish) and Karina Umaña (who will translate the conversation into English) will focus on the actual current challenges government officials face trying to improve educational opportunities for their constituents, and how NGO’s and Service Organizations can partner with and assist them to make a significant difference for the people they serve. This session will also focus on the challenges of Project Sustainability and the need for community training to identify and manage the resources needed to sustain current and future programs.
This session will focus on the challenges facing formal education authorities in under resourced areas, and how NGO’s can assist to improve formal education in the areas they serve. Many education authorities are willing to partner with NGO’s and may provide nationally prepared curricula and teachers for new schools that comply with their established design standards. We will discuss examples that offer extended educational opportunities for many communities that only have access to grades 1-6. This session will also focus on the challenges of Educational Facility Sustainability and the need for community training to identify and manage the resources needed for the life (50 years) of any new or existing school facilities.
