The Tutor Project

Background

Many children in Oaxaca City and in the outlying villages come from low income families in marginalized situations. Often they are eager learners but in need of extra help, especially with maths, sciences, and computer skills to complete high school and go on to higher education. University students from their own social class make ideal tutors for them. Very often these tutors are struggling themselves to pay for their own education.

Project Information

The Project

CANFRO’s Tutor Project helps pay tutors a stipend for their work with high school students. This helps the tutors pay for their own education which otherwise they could not afford. We see this as a ‘win-win’ situation. Tutoring takes place at The Oaxaca Learning Centre (TOLC) located at Murguia #703.

Outcomes

This project provides income to offset tutors’ university expenses while they work to strengthen the academic capacity of the high school students they are tutoring. They provide positive role modeling and mentoring to younger students from the same social class.

Success Stories

CANFRO is proud to share real-life stories about the children and youth who benefit from this project and the dedicated staff at our partner agencies who support them. These illustrate the direct impact of your donations.
