Updates on Fabretto’s Response to COVID-19

May 7, 2020

April 16, 2020

It has been a month since Nicaragua reported its first case of COVID-19 and although times continue to be uncertain, la familia Fabretto remains committed to working together to find innovative ways to serve some of the most impoverished communities of Nicaragua.

 

In order to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our students and staff, during this time, Fabretto has made significant strides in reinventing the ways in which we deliver education. These efforts include:

 

Developing key resources, including guides for teachers and parents, worksheets, audiobooks, videos, and apps.

 

Distributing printed study guides and handouts for students, as well as instruction manuals and videos for parents to facilitate in-home learning.

 

Implementing the use of digital tools like Google Classroom, G-Suite, WhatsApp, and screen-recording software to deliver lessons to students in Fabretto’s rural education program, SAT.

 

Compiling lists of online resources like ProFuturo for teachers, parents, and students alike.

 

We are concerned about the impact that COVID-19 and the economic consequences of the crisis may have on the health and wellbeing of the families we serve. For this reason, Fabretto has also responded by sharing key health messages and handwashing instructions with staff, teachers, parents, and students. In addition, Fabretto has distributed relief packages of food products and hygiene supplies to families, and we expect to continue distributing packages of much-needed supplies to families in need during the coming months.

 

We are inspired by the commitment and creativity of our staff who are making all of this happen from a distance despite facing numerous logistical challenges. We truly believe in the power of education in times of crisis, but we need your help to continue to bring education to our students’ homes.

 

Throughout the next few weeks, we will share the extraordinary ways that our community is responding to the challenge ahead, and we hope you will consider supporting the continuation of our life-changing work. Together, we can make an extraordinary difference in the lives of children, youth, and their families in Nicaragua.

 

With deep appreciation,

As the world experiences the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, my thoughts and prayers turn to you. My sincerest hope is that you and your loved ones remain safe and in good health during these difficult times.

 

Last Wednesday, Nicaragua reported its first case of COVID-19. Given the situation, Fabretto is taking precautions to safeguard the health of our beneficiaries and staff. This includes handwashing campaigns, distribution of soap and hand sanitizers, and implementing online learning and teleworking. We know that a public health crisis of this magnitude is affecting us all worldwide, and we are doing everything possible to mitigate the negative impact this could have on the children and families in the communities we serve in Nicaragua.

 

Additionally, to protect our supporters, Fabretto has decided to postpone until further notice both the Friends of Fabretto trip scheduled this month and our annual NYC Night for Niños, usually held in May.

 

Because this is a quickly-changing situation, we are constantly monitoring new guidelines set by local health authorities, as well as the CDC and WHO. As the situation continues to evolve, we may need to take additional measures.

 

It is thanks to your unconditional support that we have been able to respond to this and other crises throughout the years in a timely and responsible way. Thank you for staying with us and for being there always. Together, we will get through this.

 

Take care.

 

Kind regards,
