We are excited to initiate the route to complete our promise. As reported in previous opportunities, we have finally began the education process to provide 12 young students with the tools to build a sound and organized financial education path to their success.
We have reached an alliance with the La Chinita School, managed by the Salesians ladies, that is located in Maracaibo, the capital city of the Zulia's State, the one located in the West Coast are, lilmiting with Colombia. An interesting number of students attend this school for their secundary education classes on a daily basis. They come from low income households, some of them from indigenous ethnicities while their majority do not count on an intelligent device to receive on line classes. However, the school bet for them to participate in our training programs.
Students are coming back to school while actions to enhance their integration to the classrooms have varied in days of presence at school and days of remote connection. It is important to highlight that remote connection has been difficult in our country showing a weak internet structure and a lack of intelligent tools at national level. On the other hand for most of students do not count with internet service nor an electronic device. In the few cases they participate with their parents phones and data as we fight for space to deliver our contents considering that for them data means prepaid money.
Nonetheless a dozen of students have initiated classes on Economic for Success, a comprehensive program that we are sending online to be acccessed with a code and also downloaded by the local volunteers who are accompanying these young teams along their classes and guiding them in matters related to financial planning, careers selection, innovative thinking and intelligent decisions to strengthen their knowledge and professional future with soft skills that are embedded in the education process.
As we have understood that is possible to maintain this project managing small groups of young people we will focus our procedures in working with the school to consequently repeat this training along the school year in order to reach as many as students as possible before classes finish next June.
These actions had not been possible without our donors support who we thank deeply for their constant and generous spirit. For each $10 given to our cause every person can inspire and push to succeed a young student forever for a better lilfe and better society.
Sincere thanks to all of you!
