Express, discover, develop
Superlearner's goal is to create an environment where children can express themselves, discover their interests and intelligence, and develop skills. Through both formal and non-formal education, the project offers a variety of activities. Take a look at some of the workshops we’ve held!
When joining Superlearner, the children practice concentration, problem solving, imagination, communication, formal education (learning, writing, reading), and much more. All of these skills, the children can benefit from when encountering hardship now and in the future.
While learning and having fun, we want to show the children that they are bright, capable, and worthy; three important things to be told when everything around you seems to indicate the opposite.
We are one big Superlearner team
Superlearner is about cooperation. The volunteers, our partners, the families we reach out to; we are all a part of one big Superlearner team. We encourage each other to share our thoughts - and to listen and acknowledge! It is very important to Superlearner to show each child that their voice counts. Every opinion and idea is important and valuable.
At Superlearner, we believe that empowerment and education must appeal to all aspects of life; language lessons and various activities cannot empower children alone. Therefore, our team consists of teachers, psychologists, and nutritionists among others, and we cooperate with organizations that can provide us the necessary resources for any type of situation. By embracing the children's reality, we hope to make a long-term, tangible difference in the communities.
What has Superlearner achieved so far?
Superlearner is a new and developing organization, and since we started the project in 2017 we have come a long way! Superlearner is now recognized as an NGO in Italy, and currently 12 permanent volunteers are working with Superlearner both onsite and online.
We are cooperating with a number of organizations (take a look at our partners here*) and in three different locations, 53 amazing children and their families are joining the project each week. The children are responding very well to the project. They join voluntarily and continue to show up, and they are excited and eager to learn.
Superlearner works in three of the poorest areas in Lima, Peru, and in each location we offer activities once a week. We are working with 81 children, 20 teeangers, and 15 mothers.
The children and their families live in poverty stricken districts, and have limited or no economical, social, and cultural resources. This affects the basic living conditions such as access to fresh water, hygiene, and housing situation as well as health, safety, and mental well-being. The children are very vulnerable in these communities, and they often struggle with problematic family backgrounds.
In addition to this, the quality of education is very low and when growing up in these areas, it is to many difficult to rise above their circumstances.
Pamplona Alta, Villa El Salvador
The major issue for our families in Pamplona Alta is their poor living conditions caused by extreme poverty. Their homes are poor, unsafe, and unhealthy to live in, there is no running water, and lack of infrastructure.
Pachacamac, Villa El Salvador
The major issue for our children in Pachacamac is the family situation. Most of the children we work with come from dysfunctional families. In these families, a child might have up to 9 siblings and sometimes will have to work instead of going to school.
Adesesep, Santa Rosa
The major issue for our families in Adesesep is the location of the area. The community is isolated and vulnerable. It lacks drinking water, and the health system is scarce. Very few homes are made of noble material.
