Dear donors, is a pleasure to let you know that we have accomplished more than expected although we have not received any more donations since the beginning of 2020.
Times have been strong for all NGO's - included ours - along the pandemic period, while some measurements imposed by the local government have extremely affected the way we work preventing to directly reach our beneficiaries. However as our education programs have been converted to on-line ones in a variety of digital platforms, savings have provided the necessary funds to continue with our financial education classes until the first 2020 quarter, but are already finished so we cannot continue to operate while reaching students has come to be more difficult every day due to the worst internet services in the planet we count on in Venezuela. Not only our students and teachers at schools do not count on funds to buy a computer nor a smart phone, there also is a lack of internet structure in most of the low income areas. Students have been forced to using their parents equipments to afford the available contents.For this to be possible we have not only converted some of these to What's App contents but also have prepared teachers on these for them to support the project implementing classes with these valuable knowledge. BNonetheless, at the end, financial support is needed to continue the job and administrative operation.
Times are not going to change by the moment, but we count on your generosity to continue our work. We are deeply thankful for the aid received until last year, but require of continuous support for implementation of more updated contents we count on. We are sure you will understand this fact and act upon to help us work.
