What we do?
SnapVisits aims to build community-driven mechanisms for economic development through entrepreneurship. This is achieved with an initiative that works with schools to implement a program with upper elementary students along with their mothers so that they can develop a business project as a family while the children see how important it is to continue studying.
How we do it?
Youth population in rural or urban areas stops developing skills and competencies for a productive life due to school dropout and often this occurs because families do not have enough financial resources to continue supporting their children with their education.
Through our "Kid's Cap" methodology along with the "Kit Emprende", which can be implemented by Civil Associations, Governments, Educational Institutions or the private sector.
