NASCO Feeding Minds
Nasco's initiative for the empowerment of women arose from a specific problem, for those cases in which families could not pay the symbolic price that computer classes cost (5% of cases), Nasco developed an initiative that currently He trains the mothers of these cases in the production of honey or weaving of fabrics, and with this work they obtain an income that gives them the ability to pay their expenses, which include computer classes. Currently, this activity lacks its own space, in which to carry out training workshops on growing honey or making fabrics.
The project will house a space for this activity.
CODES CAM Foundation – The building of a school
In 2014, a collaboration proposal was received for a project that the CODES CAM Foundation is conducting in Cameroon. This extensive project included the expansion of the school's classrooms, in order to cater to children separated by school age and different levels.
During the summer of 2014, the project was created, the costs were assessed and, in collaboration with the University of Architecture in Barcelona, which sent 3 volunteer architects for this project, the plans for the future school were drawn up. Building of the new school was carried out in 2015, with the collaboration of people from the town itself and volunteers from several European countries.
In 2016, the Foundation once again supported this project with a financial endowment to enable them to finish the works in the area, collect rainwater and bring electricity to the school's facilities. With these services underway, there will be a proposal to provide the school's students with computers and an Internet connection.
The construction of a school
In 2002, the Congregation of the Dominican Sisters of the Presentation proposed a project to build a school in the capital of Burkina Faso, to the Torres family. By the winter of 2003 it was already a reality. They founded the Torres Maternal School for children from 3 to 5 years old, currently hosting more than 120 students. The Torres Family Foundation helped in the construction of the two-story building on the outskirts of Ouagadougou.
