Summary

In a broken country, this project helps 2,000 beautiful children to know what life can and should be and gives them the skills for the future they deserve! Daily meals and weekly character-formation feeds body and mind. Teachers receiving a monthly cash incentive do not emigrate and special training increases their motivation and paycheck. Empowered students and teachers, in control of their lives, can live with integrity and goals, and will be equipped to bring change and a return to democracy.

Challenge

Twenty years of catastrophic revolution has produced corruption, hunger, violence and despair all over Venezuela. Children and teens are innocent victims of a system that squandered immense oil wealth. They witness daily abuse and often must beg for food. Teachers are leaving the classrooms just when kids need to learn life skills, and to build and take part in a true democracy. Heroic teachers do wish to supply the knowledge and skills, from grades K-12, to reach these goals but need your help!

Solution

This project will teach and provide materials, and food to keep over 2,000 children and teens in school, where trained teachers will give them the skills to be their best selves, so a renewed cohort can enter adulthood, eager to correct a failed system. Teachers working with students' families are already changing local communities, with unity and leadership. Teens embracing responsibility dramatically lower gang membership and teen pregnancies, the cause of the vicious cycle of poverty.

Long-Term Impact

This project will prepare 2,000 young women and men to be agents of change. Fully equipped to be dependable leaders and productive citizens, they will energize their generation because experience shows that our graduates develop their natural Venezuelan leadership abilities. With emotional intelligence and conflict-resolution skills as well as a realistic life plan, these young people will be enthusiastic and able to take their place in rebuilding families, communities, and peace in Venezuela.
