School “Fe y Alegría – Caruto” in Caicara del Orinoco (Venezuela)

The “Fe y Alagría” School is located in the neighborhood of San Rafael, Centurión sector.

At present, the communities around the School are being formed from large families whom are in a daily and continuously race for survival. Houses and educational institutions were built, and basic medical assistance was incremented around the area. The supply service is very precarious in the area, there are constant failures in the water service, which generates many water cuts and sometimes with electricity lost. This generates problems with hygiene, health, communication, public transport, etc.

On top of the mentioned above, there is a constant threat of a big pool of balckwater in front of the school.

The school is being guided by the “Sisters of Consolation”, and inspired by the educational principles of Fe y Algeria and the charisma of Consolation.

The internal organization responds to a vision with three well-defined dimensions: a humanizing, integrating and liberating education. These dimensions are present in any action that takes place in different school environments.

For “Fe y Alegría”, to educate you must shape your heart, mind, the hands of the people, believes in quality education, hence education which foment man and woman’s whom are aware of their potentials and the reality that surrounds them.

The School takes care of 440 students during morning and afternoon shifts, in 7 classrooms, in ages between 5 and 12 years old.
