Fundacion Madre Maria Luisa Casar provides health, education and daily balanced meals to 400 children in a poor slum in Caracas. For 22 years, we count as success cases, the stories of more than 500 students who have accomplished their goals through formal education. Our Alumni Scholarship Program began in 2010, 124 students have completed high school. We help them through college or technical institutes. Students stepped out of marginalization through formal jobs in Venezuela and outside.
Education is the sole path to leave poverty, but the unique way education can be accomplished is, if it is combined with proper nutrition and health care. Our goal is that all our students acquire the tools to increase their employability options in formal jobs, so they can leave social marginalization and collaborate in the construction of a better society.
Fundacion Madre Maria Luisa Casar puts together the best equipment that a child needs: education, health and nourishment. We take care of 400 students while they attend U.E. Jenaro Aguirre, and after they complete their studies in our school, we continue accompanying them and their families while they follow higher levels of education.
Children who participate in Fundacion Madre Maria Luisa Casar's projects through U.E. Jenaro Aguirre, have the resources needed to leave poverty through formal jobs inside and outside Venezuela. This benefits not only the students but their families and community of one of the biggest slums in Latin America.
