GreenKidz launches new educational Mosquito prevention program

June 2022

Recently, the GreenKidz Foundation launched a new educational program at the Schotborg School in Koraal Specht. GreenKidz coordinator Maya Mathias: “Our Mosquito Prevention program ‘Don’t give mosquitoes a chance’ focuses on awareness and prevention. It teaches children how mosquitoes transmit dangerous diseases, how to detect mosquito hotspots and, above all, how to prevent mosquito bites.

Digital first for Curaçao

The bilingual curriculum (PAP/NED) is GreenKidz’ first blended learning or hybrid program. It combines traditional learning materials with online learning materials that children can follow independently using digital devices. Mathias: For this program, we created a colorful mosquito book with games and puzzles, beautiful mosquito puppets, and educational worksheets and coloring pages. In addition, for the first time we developed a series of mosquito e-learns that children can follow for free in Papiamentu or Dutch from their cell phone, iPad, laptop or computer. That is a first for Curaçao. We want to respond to the trend that more and more children and schools in the Caribbean use digital tools to gain new knowledge.’

Free teaching packages for Dutch Caribbean schools

In the past 7 years, GreenKidz has created successful programs for primary and secondary education and for the Teacher’s program at the University of Curacao. Mathias: “With this program we are spreading our wings to the entire Dutch Caribbean. Our new mosquito prevention program will soon be available for all islands of the Dutch Caribbean. It will even be printed in four languages by one of our sponsors, namely in English, Dutch, Papiamentu and Papiamento. On Curacao our free mosquito lesson packages for regular and special needs schools will soon be distributed through Mensings Caminada. With this green prevention program, we hope to further realize our mission ”Changing the mindset of generations’ and ‘Moving towards a healthier Dutch Caribbean’.
