Summary of IP Programs
|IP Education Centers – “bibliotecas”
In rural El Salvador, children go to schools that lack basic resources – from paper to books to computers. Classes are only half a day. IP Education Centers fill the gap, providing access to books, computers, internet as well as a place to study, homework help, and classes in reading, writing, math, art, and computer skills.
|IP Scholarships and Academic Support
Too often, even the brightest students in rural El Salvador don’t go to school because their parents cannot afford the costs. IP scholarships offer hope and opportunity to a student, a family, and a community that can thrive when people gain an education.
|Capacity Building for Community Leaders
IP programs promote capacities of local leaders and fund their community development projects and bring US delegations to live and work with community members.
IP provides practical support to facilitate social and educational inclusion for individuals with disabilities and their families.
|Early Childhood Initiative
Pre-school prepares children for school by promoting early development and school readiness prior to first grade.
|SEE US Special Education Excellence for Underserved Students
Special Education Excellence for Under-served Students (SEE US) Provides no-cost, expert, special education advocacy to Black students with special needs in the U.S. whose education has been impacted by systemic racism. SEE US raises tax deductible contributions to ensure that each Black student with special needs and disabilities receives proper education plans that will allow them to succeed in school and beyond.
|Note: To address issues related to COVID-19, IP has taken a number of steps to protect participants including: required mask wearing, social distancing, use of hand sanitizer, temperature checks at entry, outdoor activities and sending students home who have symptoms, and daily sanitation procedures.|
