To celebrate our 2nd year in business M+S traveled to Junin-Peru last December to donate a scholarship of $1,250.
Initially, Raul attempted coordination of the scholarship with the local women’s school (Cory Coyllor). Once in Acolla, Raul learned that the principal was accused of corruption and that many students had switched schools due to the poor administration.
Due to lack of response from Cory Collor’s principal, the scholarship was coordinated with Collegio “Inca
Garcilazo De La Vega”.
Upon a prompt, transparent and cordial coordination with the principal Mag. Max Antonio Canchayd Limache, and the school teachers; the scholarship was awarded to the top 4 graduating students.
The students, Ivan Ladera Julcarima, Yulisa Quispe Chuquipoma, Otlin Palacios Dávil, received a fully paid semester of college preparation at CEPRE UNCP (” Center of Pre-University studies for the “Universidad National Del Centro Del Peru”).
The student Aldo Inga Cipriano received a brand-new laptop.
Funds for the laptop (approximately $300) where obtained through private donators @gofundme website.
“Inca Garcilazo De La Vega” is the school where Raul Mayta Sr. graduated from. Fifty years ago he donated a large collection of preserved animals to the school’s lab after becoming a biologist.
Our scholarship effort aims to balance, support, promote education in rural areas affected by many years of violence.
M+S hopes to continue the family history of support towards education as a way to achieve equality and personal/ communal improvement.
With everyone’s support (friends, clients and family) we hope to continue the scholarship on a yearly basis.
