Fabretto teacher training helps teachers to become the best version of themselves and improve the quality of education offered at public schools, as well as Fabretto-owned Education Centers.

Gledys’ teacher, Nery, has been trained in play-based educational methodologies that have changed her students’ role in the classroom, from merely receptors of information to protagonists of their own learning.

We believe teachers in Nicaragua have the power to help students living in poverty develop skills that can transform their own future, as well as the future of their society.

Gledys’ mother, Lorgia, volunteers to cook meals at her daughter’s primary school. For many of the children in attendance, this will be their only full meal
