Together with its subsidiary Fitotek, Delacon supports a rural and economically poor region with educational projects. In several lectures, sixty teachers were able to develop their skills in cooperative learning methodologies.
According to teacher Christian Navarro, one of the participants, the project attacks a weak point of education in Chile, which is teamwork. It is something fundamental for current education. “These kinds of experiences help children to socialize better. Moreover, it helps to develop social intelligence and soft skills.”
Paulo Tomargo, CEO Fitotek implemented this project for personal reasons. As a father of two, he knows about the importance of a good education. Hence, he wanted to enable similar conditions for children in rural regions in Chile.
Several teachers have already implemented previously learned cooperative learning. “It is a helpful tool to deal with difficult topics. Another good instrument to transfer knowledge,” says Paola Solari Campos.
