With the support of Fundación MAPFRE, the Da un Chance organization works to offer students of great talent and potential, but of limited financial means, the opportunity to study in dynamic schools which activate this potential.
The project takes place in Lima, Peru and is carried out through a scholarship program for 30 students who have shown good academic performance and demonstrated talent.
The objective of the program is to stimulate and develop the talent of Peruvian students so that they become more responsible and involved citizens. The beneficiaries of the scholarships come from families of very limited means in different areas of Lima.
Once the student has started the academic year in the assigned school, the organization works hand in hand with the institution to carry out a continual review of the child’s performance, evaluating his or her adaptation and progress.
Da un Chance is a non-profit association founded in June 2011 which seeks to create agents of change in society, providing the opportunity of a better education to young people with talent, to generate positive and sustainable social growth.
