Dubai Cares To Support 1,000 Young Students In Peru

Dubai Cares’ program reinforces role of music in social development. Dubai Cares’ “Social Inclusion Through the Teaching of Music” program, which was first launched in April 2017 in partnership with Sinfonia por el Peru, resulted in the establishment of a new music center in Arequipa city, the second-largest city in Southwestern Peru. The center has not only provided 748 students aged 5 to 15 years access to music education in its first phase, but also used music as a catalyst for social development. The second phase with a grant of AED 1,836,750 (USD 500,000) is expected to benefit around 300 additional students and support the hiring of 25 additional teachers and administration staff for the musical center, as well as create 3 additional modules that will be operational in other schools. A digital classroom is also expected to enrich the learning experience of the students and enable them to easily interact with other centers and teachers in the country and abroad.

Dubai Cares’ delegation also carried out field visits to monitor and evaluate the organization’s “Support to MAIPI – Model of Comprehensive Care for Early Childhood in Peru” program. The program in partnership with Kusi Warma, is bringing Early Childhood Development (ECD) support to 500 disadvantaged children below the age of 3. It is supporting 351 families of children aged up to 3 years by providing them training and coaching at their home and at ECD centers, and training 32 community agents on health, nutrition, education and protection topics. The program is being implemented in the Andean rural district of Turpo in Andahuaylas province - where over 60% of the population lives in poverty, and the urban slums in the district of Ventanilla, Callao province - where 33% of the population is poor or extremely poor. Moreover, the program includes a health component that tackles the chronic anemia concern in Peru and aims to reduce the prevalence of anemia amongst children aged 0-3 in order to improve their brain and language development. Overall, the program tackles the adverse effects of poverty on the children’s physical, psychological and social development, and includes capacity building of communities and local authorities towards parental education and raising awareness on the rights of pre-school children.
