100 young boys and girls were benefited with scholarships during 2021, including free monthly medical consultation, packs of supplies, school uniforms and dental care
Education has been affected by the Covid-19 situation since it began in the first months of 2020 extending to 2021, so many families were affected and this aggravated the situation to the point of suspending the education of their sons and daughters. As for as the new modalities of receiving classes, rural areas do not have internet or suitable electronic devices in order to receive classes. It is there that Paz y Bien has managed to continue for 14 years uninterrupted by supporting them with school supplies, medical assistance, provision of food bags and, for some young people, with computers or tablets.
Sharing with Paz y Bien the joy of obtaining their diversified diploma brings great satisfaction to the association, after seeing the fruits of many young people who were about to abandon their studies and thanks to this Program of Scholarships may continue their studies until graduation.
After the requirements of the new modality for receiving classes, many of our young people has found it even more difficult it, after not having the equipment necessary. So, Paz y Bien continues its accompaniment donating tablets and computers for some of our scholarship recipients. Such is the case of the student Delmi Cruz, who will be able to continue her studies virtually.
The Scholarship Program reaps fruits of the effort of the young men and women with scholarships, an example of this is the student Lilian Mariela Miguel Cruz, who has completed the 5th year of the Baccalaureate in Sciences and Letters with Orientation in Physical Education achieving recognition of excellence academic and having obtained first place in her promotion.
