Paraguayan self-management educational model, will benefit 1.500.000 Ecuadorian students
The government of Ecuador, after having visited and known the self-sustaining educational model promoted by the Fundación Paraguaya in the agricultural schools of Cerrito and Belén, decided to adopt and implement it in their country, benefiting more than 1.500.000 students from 302 agricultural technical schools, who will be able to produce their own products and market them.
This launch was carried out by the Presidency of the Republic, the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock and the Ministry of Education of Ecuador in the educational unit of Cavambe, which is north of the Pichincha province of Ecuador.
The Minister of Education, Monserrat Creamer, said the following words: “We have 1.500.000 students in rural areas, equivalent to 35% of the students in the country, it is indeed a great challenge for us to give them all possible opportunities so that through self-sustainability, their self-management, empowerment and self-esteem improve the quality of production; thus, they will learn by doing, by earning and the whole community will get involved.”
For his part, the Minister of Agriculture, Xavier Lazo, said that the idea of this educational model has been working for some time now together with the Presidency of the Republic and the Ministry of Education, but especially under the command of the President who requested that the Rural agricultural education in Ecuador is projected into the future and has a stable policy.
Finally, the president of Ecuador, Lenín Moreno, with this new proposal urged the benefited students not to waste this new opportunity since both the government and the citizenship itself are investing in the education of each student.
This Paraguayan self-management initiative, adopted by the government of Ecuador will allow more than 1,500 students of the agricultural technical institutions of this country to produce products such as dairy, cheese, yogurt and all kinds of vegetables to market them generating resources that lead to self-sustainability.
