Project MABA

Lima, Peru
Grand Opening: April 13th 2015

Children and adolescents constitute one of the most vulnerable sectors of Peru’s population. Beyond the staggering number living in poverty, an overwhelming number of those enrolled in school fall below the learning standards in mathematics for their grade level.

In 2016, Maestro Cares Foundation sponsored the No. 25 Fe and Alegría School in partnership with the Hochschild Foundation, Tecsup and Universidad de Ingeniería y Tecnología (UTEC). Through the support of the Maestro Cares Foundation, 376 children have benefitted, more than 50 tablets have been delivered, 13 teachers have been trained and 12 classrooms have been impacted. This project provides a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) curriculum for grades 1 - 3.

Project MABA is an innovative educational program that uses technology to deliver high-quality programming to disadvantaged children in Lima, Peru. Specifically, the program improves early education experiences in STEM curriculum by investing in the technological and communications infrastructure, providing state-of-the-art equipment and a proven tech-based curriculum. This project also provides professional development for classroom teachers to implement the curriculum.

This school program benefits over 700 children.

“It’s a game, and the children learn by playing. It’s something beautiful for them. Math is more than just solving a problem—I love to see the happiness on their face while they learn with the technology.”
