The Inca Kola Foundation was created to promote the development of education in Peru through three projects: "Knowledge Boxes" (educational aid modules for teachers), teacher training workshops, and a program called "EducAnimando con Salud" (Teaching and Encouraging with Health).
The first project was implemented in schools where children of all ages study in one classroom under the direction of one teacher, and where basic educational materials are not available. "Knowledge Boxes" -- educational aid modules for teachers -- have been provided to 8,529 schools in rural zones, serving 100% of schools in 25 regions in Peru. Today, 217,053 students benefit from the Knowledge Box.
The second project is playful, creative, and reflective, involving music, theater, puppets, and interaction to improve the quality of teachers in Peru. The teachers receive training via dynamic workshops called "An alternative to improve the educational quality in Peru." This program has benefited approximately 250,000 students, with 5,695 teachers receiving the training.
The "EducAnimando con Salud" (Educating/Encouraging with Health) program is focused on developing and strengthening teachers capabilities, since they act as role models and become leaders and promote healthy behavior. The program is geared for workshops that apply a methodology in active education and foster teachers' self-learning, as well as a critical attitude and team work.
Teachers participating in the workshops prepare sessions according to established guidelines of the module "Jugando y Creciendo Saludable " (Playing and Growing Healthy) and they learn by doing. In other words, they recreate and live each session, using supportive tools prepared by them. For example, they perform puppet shows to present the benefits of physical activity and the problems that a sedentary life could create; they sing and dance with motivating songs composed about the advantages of healthy food, hydration and physical activity, etc.
Recreation during sessions enables them to innovate and discover their potential, while strengthening direct contact with the students and parents. It also prepares them to participate and subsequently implement recreational and cultural extracurricular activities.
Training was provided to 2,805 teachers and the program has benefited approximately 63,267 students in Villa El Salvador, Rímac, Callao, Los Olivos in Lima, Sullana, Piura, Ica, Cusco and Arequipa.
The Health Ministry, Education Ministry and PRISMA NGO participated in the program.
