Transforming lives through technology

Certification ceremony (Petare)

Monica A. is a young student at SUPERATEC’s training center in Cagua. After completing the SUPERATEC’s 160 hours training program she shared the following testimony:

My experience in SUPERATEC has been excellent. It made me grow up as a person and was an important step towards my professional development. This experience provided me an opportunity to get to know valuable people such as SUPERATEC’s team. This experience has been one of the most rewarding I’ve ever had. It has been very inspiring because I realized how many valuable people there is in my country. Being in SUPERATEC has been for me like a renaissance in all the ways

Even though our country is going through difficult times, SUPERATEC does not stop growing and striving to transform lives through technology.

We are happy to announce that SUPERATEC is about to inaugurate two new digital inclusion centers in Maracaibo, State of Zulia, which is the second most populated city in Venezuela. At the same time, SUPERATEC is about to initiate a project aimed to open one more digital before the end of this year. With these three new centers SUPERATEC is now two steps from our significant milestone of 20 centers in Venezuela.

On the last two weeks of April SUPERATEC held four certification ceremonies for 147 people who completed the SUPERATEC´s 120 hours training program. Besides, during the first quarter of the current year, 1172 people attended courses on technology as a tool for life offered by SUPERATEC-CDI network.

 

SUPERATEC is also updating its main training program in order to fulfill the expectations and needs of our beneficiaries and to meet the job market’s current reality. Following the suggestions collected from our students, the SUPERATEC’s 160 hours training program has been reduced to 120 hours. It was also reorganized and renewed by incorporating training modules on entrepreneurship in order to provide the students with basic tools for self-employment or for initiating a micro business on activities related to technology, such as technical support for PC’s and digital editions.

Thanks to donors like you, even in difficult times, SUPERATEC keeps growing and innovating in order to serve better our beneficiaries.

Happy Valentines!

Happy Valentine’s Day! We wish you a life plenty of love and joy.

On December 2014, we hosted certification events in our digital inclusion centers to celebrate the end of the year. We had a great year and we are planning an even greater 2015, adding new centers in new states in Venezuela. The dream is having at least one center in every state in Venezuela.

During the 2014, we attended 4178 students in all of our 15 centers in seven states and we offered over 50 different courses.  Because we believe in the Girl Power, we have attended over 2500 women in our centers and over 60% of our students are young people. We aim to develop new courses in order to satisfy the need of our communities, and this is why participation it’s so important to us.

Venezuela is going through a social, economic and political crisis, which is not a secret at all. This situation require a different approach of the problem and more hard work, and we have been doing this to overcome the obstacles.

Thank you so much for your support and love!

Live long and prosper!

Holiday's season is coming!

The past October we started a new scholar year 2014-2015 in all our 15 centers in Venezuela. We are pleased with the results of our last year especially for the social and political challenges we have faced as a country.

At the beginning of 2014, Venezuela went through difficult times when massive public protest took over the streets. Unfortunately, with violence. In order to keep safe our staff and students, we closed our centers several days. By March 2014, we recovered our daily routine, which means we really started our activities three months after our programming. Besides this specific point break in our year, we have also faced a sustained increase in our inflation rates. This means we have to accomplish every task and goal with at least half of the money we expected. It has not been an easy year at all!

However, we are very aware that our work can bring the change Venezuela needs. And we keep with our goal reaching new communities all over the country. In 2013-2014, we attended over 3500 people in our centers and we offered over 40 different courses for our communities, including new proposals from our allies, like the TV Technical course with Venevision. Also we are strenghtening our collaboration with another social development NGO like Senos Ayuda (Breast Help), they are in charge of helping breast cancer patients in Venezuela, and they rock! Also we have great experiences wih Cargill and Diageo and their social program Learning for Life. 

For the new scholar year, we are expecting to work with three new communities in Venezuela and create new courses for all our students. Right now, we are preparing for Holiday season and we expect to have our first certification ceremony before December 15th.

Thank you for your support and understanding. Together we are creating a better place for all of us.
