Status:

Completed: School year 2017-2018 and school year 2018-2019

Renewed for the school year 2019-2020

Grant:

Between $50,000 to $100,000

NOTE: Due to Venezuela's inflationary economy, the 2016 grant amount was sufficient to continue to fund the program in the next school year. By June 2018 the inflation also affected the prices in US dollars, so the school year 2019-2020 requires as much funding as the two previous years.

Sector:

Children's Health

Education
