Caracas.- Banesco Banco Universal renewed its support to the Asociación Damas Salesianas by delivering Bs 226.44 million for the consolidation of the Training for Work which will benefit over 200 young people of low-income from the capital region studying in the Centro Don Bosco 88.
Patricia Muchacho de Villasmil, president of the Asociación Damas Salesianas, said the funds will be used specifically for the provision of equipment, improved infrastructure and facilities, and the payment of facilitators of the Don Bosco Center 88. The intention is to serve 200 young people to train in the program of Accounting Analyst and Company Administrative Assistant.
The Centro Don Bosco 88 is managed by the Asociación de Damas Salesianas, a non-profit and social development organization, which leads activities and proposals to strengthen low-income groups and communities located in popular areas of the country. The association is one of the main social partners of Banesco.
Currently, at the aforementioned location two training programs are held: the National Learning and Secretarial Training Program. Both are supervised by the National Institute for Educational Cooperation (INCE). Villasmil explained that the intention is to train and educate young people so that they can be inserted into the labor market, reinforcing their identity as a productive and necessary factor for the country.
In 2006 Banesco gave the Asociación de Damas Salesianas 164.18 million Bolivars, while in 2005 the amount increased to 133.56 million Bolivars.
