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!

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.

We are training digital artists with a very unique perspectives! Their work has shown at the end of the course in a so-called gallery exposition... We are thrilled for repeating the experience.

So far, 2014 it has been a challenging year for Venezuelan people. We are going through a deep social-economic-political crisis and it has affected our life and work without distinction. We believe we are going to overcome these difficult times as a country and get back stronger than ever. In the middle of this crisis, the SUPERATEC’s team has continued the work creating opportunities to our youth develop their capacities.

We have a huge goal for this year, reach new communities all over Venezuela, and we are working hard in order to reach this objective. New centers were expected to be open by now, they should be wait for other time. But don’t get it wrong! We are still in our track, preparing the new centers and strengthening the organizations that are working with us in different states of our country.

At the same time, we continue our academic offer in our established digital centers. Since January we have offered about 20 different courses and currently we have 781 participants in our classrooms. The most popular course is Basic Computer with over 130 participants in which is remarkable the attendance of our elderly. The digital bridge is been shortened with these courses and we are training a new generation of involved citizens.

In addition, we are designing new oriented job courses in alliance with companies that need young personal trained. The experience was excellent and many of our participants already obtained an internship.

The next July is our 12th anniversary and we are thrilled with our new projects. We appreciate your support helping us to transform lives and communities with technology and human values.

We started this New Year with a new center SUPERATEC-CDI Catia La Mar in Vargas state. The inauguration of the center was the past November 2013 and all the crew is exciting to work with technology. In Catia La Mar we are working with the social organization Salud y Familia (Health and Family) and its work is based in providing health services and work with the Parent School. They have plenty of experience working with the communities around the center and the education in technology was the missing part in their beautiful place. Catia La Mar is located nearby the coast, at north of the country. This is our second center in Vargas state and that it means we are growing up! Our main goal this year is reach more communities all around our country and this center is just the beginning. This year we are expecting the opening of 5 new center in different states. It is the great challenge for us and finally we are spreading our vision in order to improve communities and people through technology and employability. During 2013 we certificated over 2,300 youth and people from the communities around of our 11 centers in Venezuela. We offered 44 courses about technology, personal development and job inclusion. People of all kind has attended our courses and we are really impressed with our elders and how well they have been integrated with new technologies. We are planning to inaugurate our next center in February in Miranda state. As you can realize, we have plenty of work this year. So 2014, bring it on!
