Anzoátegui State, Venezuela
After the success of the first year of this project and facing the desperate need the Venezuelan children are suffering, we have decided to continue supporting this project.
- To improve the nutrition of 1,009 students at two Fe y Alegría schools in eastern Venezuela—specifically in the Anzoategui region—through the implementation of a school nutrition program, which will provide students with breakfast and lunch five days a week.
- To improve school attendance rates and the learning abilities of the students.
The schools where this program is been implemented are:
- ETA San Joaquin with 105 students
- Campo Mata with 904 students
Completed: School year 2017-2018 and school year 2018-2019
Renewed for the school year 2019-2020
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.
Complying with the agreement brokered by Bastion between the investors and Fe y Alegría, the organization delivers quarterly reports and a final report at the end of the project.
At the same time, Bastion commissions periodic independent reports as part of the services it provides to its donors.
You can find them all here.
This program started in the school year 2016-2017 and has continued to be funded by Bastion's investors until present.
