Under the reducción system, locals from the Guaraní tribe lived communally and brought their farming skills with them and the Jesuits, in turn, protected the tribes from “bad influences” and exploitation by the Europeans. They learned basic education and tradecrafts such as carpentry, leather tanning, bookmaking and manuscript preparation. The more promising boys were given advanced, classical educations. -- https://www.tripsavvy.com/jesuit-missions-of-south-america-1637086

This seems to be a recurring theme in South America. Given the ties between the Jesuits and the Nazis that should come as no surprise.
