Why is supporting Arte Pro sustainable
Inequality can be attacked at its source. Many major economic and social problems such as crime, teenage pregnancy, dropping out of high school, and adverse health conditions are linked to low levels of skill and ability in society.
The UNESCO ushers non-formal education as a way to address these legitimate concerns, while leaving the door open to mainstream education later on. The range of non-formal initiatives for street children is vast. Methods vary from using dance, music and sports to circus and art.
Cognitive abilities are important determinants of socioeconomic success. So are socioemotional skills, physical and mental health, perseverance, attention, motivation, and self-confidence. They contribute to performance in society at large.
Personality factors are powerfully predictive of socioeconomic success and are as powerful as cognitive abilities in producing many adult outcomes. High quality early childhood interventions foster abilities. Early interventions also boost the productivity of the economy.
Early interventions promote schooling, reduce crime, foster workforce productivity, and reduce teenage pregnancy. These interventions are estimated to have high benefit-cost ratios and rates of return. Interventions early in the life cycle of disadvantaged children have much higher economic returns than later interventions such as reduced pupil-teacher ratios, public job training, convict rehabilitation programs, adult literacy programs, tuition subsidies, or expenditure on police. The returns are much higher than those found in most active labor market programs.
