Qualified teachers tutor the children there, giving individual attention to each child and helping them overcome any difficulties and become confident in their work.
"From the moment Aldo started coming to the after-school club, I noticed that he had some problems," said Oriola, MWB teacher.
"He couldn't read or do basic maths such as addition and subtraction. Aldo was scared and insecure, but he was a loving child, obedient and eager to learn. The earthquake and the pandemic created a particularly difficult challenge in schools. I also think that Aldo's family found it tough to help him. His insecurities at school had led to problems in his behavior, making him sensitive, irritable, and impatient," Oriola added. "He refused to admit when he was wrong. But Aldo has come a long way and changed a lot in a few months.
Aldo's face lights up when he is asked about after school club. "I love it," he said with a big smile. "It's not like school. I go there and learn new things, and I understand the lessons. I'm not afraid to ask when I don't understand something. On Monday, my schoolteacher said, I'm doing well now.”
His mother is relieved to see Aldo doing so well. She said, "He's a better reader, and he's more involved in the lessons thanks to the professional support he receives. Every day he can't wait to go to the club."
Now Aldo feels secure in himself and excited about the future. "When I grow up, I want to be a chef," he said.
Aldo's future is already looking brighter – he is more likely to succeed because he is engaged in his education. Your support can help children like Aldo grow in confidence and choose their own future.
