Maxivacaciones- Art and culture for integral development
When the vacation period starts at the beginning of December, and during the months of January and February, many children and teeenagers choose to dedicate themselves to work. Selling merchandise from the Christmas season, shining shoes, on public transport, as domestic workers, etc. This is reinforced by the effects of the pandemic on family economies, as minors are forced to contribute to their household or finance their own expenses. Added to this, the lags of the pandemic are also evident in the limitations in the knowledge and learning process of children and adolescents due to the complications of virtual education in vulnerable areas. For this reason, it is especially important to reinforce these learning areas through playful strategies and methodologies. In addition, in line with Huchuy Yachaq's conviction in integral education, it is also essential to work on emotions, recognize them and express them, through art, theater, plastic arts, music in workshops to strengthen the emotional development of each participant. It is true that various courses and vacation programs are offered; however, these are not accessible due to the costs they represent. In this understanding, "Maxivacaciones 2023" is a program focused on making school vacation time a time for recreation and learning. A space that allows children and teenagers to learn in different ways, expand their social spaces, their personal aspirations through the discovery of new experiences and opportunities to participate in innovative, challenging and fun courses and workshops that also reinforce basic areas such as communication and basic mathematics for each grade level. Experiences and opportunities, in a context in which they are unfortunately elusive, are the best gift that can be given to children and adolescents this Christmas season. Be part of this cause and enliven the Christmas of children and teenagers by giving away the most precious thing for them: education.
