School for children of inmates
The project CAICC in Cochabamba, Bolivia looks after children who, along with their parents, must live in a prison. They are taken to school and afterwards get attention (looked after). In this project four adolescents, who lived previously with their parents in jail, were able to finish high school and applied to the university. This certainly is a great achievement that makes RUVD proud!
The Auxiliary Nurse Project in Lancetillo, Guatemala
RUVD has so far given grants to eight young women to study to become an auxiliary nurse. Two of these women, Lucrecia and Apolinaria, had the highest grades in their final exams. The new candidates will start their studies on 20 January. We give three grants a year (each 2400 US dollars). In the future we hope to support the education for licensed nurses.
Support of daily school meals
We also support a project in Guatemala City: a school that is close to the city’s main landfill. Our donation secures the daily meals of 325 children. Also here, we are planning of broadening our support by giving grants to finish high school or a vocational training.
