Joven Adelante Project

As a way to start the 2019 school year, in March, the first informative meetings were held with the families of university and secondary school students.
On these grounds, the necessary materials for the year development were delivered, and the families and representatives of Fundación Alda signed a “Commitment Agreement”.
