GDN supported the Fundacion Paraguay through the JSDF award to scale up its Self-Sufficient School Model by providing training and technical support to five schools to establish financially self-sufficient schools in four countries, Nicaragua, Honduras, Bolivia and Paraguay.
The major outcomes of the project were:
- Provision of training and technical assistance to five schools to implement tge Financially Self-Sufficient School model with the creation of an e-learning platform.
- Fundación Paraguay’s methods of transferring its Financially Self-Sufficient School model to other schools were tested and refined further.
- Additional scaling-up of the model was facilitated by documenting, through film and other media, the training and technical assistance provided to the five schools and thereby developing a set of relevant, high-quality training materials for future replications.
More than 1.300 low income youth attending the 5 participating schools from Honduras, Nicaragua, Bolivia and Paraguay were the direct beneficiaries of this project during its implementation.
