We were "adopted" by the Miss Cuenca nominee one year.
The city of Cuenca municipal government one year provided a grant. This money was mostly restricted to employing additional medical personal for our special needs students.
What type of team (staff, volunteers, etc.) will ensure that you achieve the growth milestones identified in the Social Impact section? [75 words]
We remain committed to employing outstanding teachers. Our teacher group is formed of national and international teachers. It is expensive to recruit and employ international teachers. However, we believe that this is a key element of our education model. The success of this is reflected in our students learning, particularly languages, and their exposure to cultural diversity.
Please elaborate on any needs or offers you have mentioned above and/or suggest categories of support that aren't specified within the list
We would like to identify and develop an "empathy learning space" (room). We envision this space containing props (costumes, model hurt animal, etc.) to create a scene in which the children can play out situations requiring them to consider good or not so good actions in a circumstance requiring empathy. We would use our prize money to partially invest in this space.
