2019 Annual Report

 

Cadanino Colonia Santa Fe 2019 Year End Ministry Report

Overview

  • This was our second year operating our full three hour after school program and we have seen that expanding to a full afternoon program has been a great investment.
  • We started the year with 90 students and 82 of them completed the year. Those that left the program did so due a variety of external reasons that are out of our control such divorce of the parents or relocating.
  • We saw a much greater interest from the parents of the students as they have come to see the value in what we are offering.

Computer Classes

  • We updated and moved our entire computer training to Google Classroom and transitioned all the students to the new platform. Classes include a variety of video passed tutorials and online exams which students’ progress through at their own pace.
  • Programs currently include:
    • Typing
    • Introduction to computers
    • MS Word/Google Docs
    • MS Powerpoint/Google Slides
    • MS Excel/Sheets
    • code.org
  • Number of students completed the following courses.
    • Word: 29
    • Typing: 47
    • Powerpoint: 7
    • Excel: 4
  • Once students complete these six programs they are free to pursue their computer education according to their interests. Advanced students are currently learning Python, HTML/CSS, JAVA. Unreal Game Engine, Blender, Adobe Illustrator and more.
  • Select students are pursuing advanced online courses through udemy.com which are comparable to college level courses.
  • Robotics
    • We held a three month robotics course on ARDUINO with 11 students graduating.

Bible Classes

  • We transitioned to a new Bible teacher mid-year as our previous teacher had family commitments that conflicted with her work.

 

  • Reyna, our new teacher is a dedicated Christian who teaches Sunday school in her church. She has been a great addition to our team.
  • We focus on one topic each week and strive to go deep with our students. Classes consist of; prayer, worship, scripture memorization, note taking and a game or activity.
  • We have seen the impact of having a solid Bible program that places a priority on teaching students to learn to study God’s word for themselves.
  • Topics covered this year included: A study of the Books of the Bible, Love of God, Cain and Able, Jacob and Esau, Moses, The Resurrection, Ruth, Solomon and the Temple, Joash, Ezequiel, Joseph, Josiah and the Word of God, Ezra, Esther, Daniel, Parable of the Rich Fool, Parable of the Pharisee and the Publican, Parable of the Pearl, Christian Finances, Samson, The Birth of Jesus, Jesus and the four friends, the Good Samaritan, Mary and Martha, Jesus and Zacchaeus.

Educational Reinforcement

  • We hired a third teacher this year and she has been with us for six months. We have known Merlyn for many years as she is an experienced teacher who lives and works in the community.
  • Having someone of her caliber who can focus on key areas of educational reinforcement; reading, writing and math has made an amazing impact and dramatically improved our entire program.
    • Eduardo has continued to provide math classes to the older students and we continue to see them making great progress with many of them starting to enjoy learning math.
  • English
    • 15 students participated in our weekly three hour English course.

Family Strengthening

  • Weekly Bible classes have continued to play a key role in fostering an environment where we can build relationships with the parents.
  • We have a small but faithful group of mothers who come for weekly Bible classes.
  • The population we serve is by default an untrusting and skeptical group of people, but as we have faithfully poured into, loved and served their children they have come to trust us and that is laying the groundwork for greater work in the community.

Highlights

  • 24 of our students placed first in their class at school. Which is 28% of those enrolled.
  • We saw motivated students make it through all five of our computer classes in one year.
  • Mission teams played an active role serving in our ministry, in ways that were a blessing to the students and our staff.

 

 

 

  • We saw a great response from the parents and families of the students at our year end closing ceremony. Students enthusiastically shared what they had learned in our program and it was well received by the parents.
  • We held a 5 week vacation class after the regular school program ended. This was an opportunity for new students to attend and for our teachers to evaluate which of them would be accepted into the regular program the following year.
  • We held our first Christmas party with presents and a traditional Christmas meal for all the students.
