Gap in Primary Education for Peruvian Students
According to the World Economic Forum, Peru ranks in the bottom 10% in the quality of primary education. The district of Ventanilla, where Kantaya works, is one of the most impoverished districts surrounding Lima, with a 30% poverty rate. Only 1 in 3 children finish secondary school and less than 2% have access to higher education.
Asociación Kantaya Supports Youths with Afterschool Program
Kantaya commits to improving access to quality education through its flagship afterschool program. Furthermore, the program complements the public schools that provide free education programs for children of ages 5-12. Kantaya provides a quality curriculum, focused on literacy, numeracy, technology skills, and soft skills. Students gain opportunities to learn from visits to universities, businesses, and museums, for example.
