Fundación MAPFRE contributes, through the Direção Geral dos School Estabelecimentos (DGEstE), an organism under the Ministry of Education and Science, to an initiative granting Portuguese students with limited resources access to the textbooks that they need to continue their studies.
The students who have been granted social support will have available a loan of books for the subjects of Portuguese, English, Mathematics and Natural Science. They will also receive a backpack so they can carry their books and supplies to school. The books, which are managed by each school or center, will be returned at the end of the school year so that the students who need them in the following years, and who are considered beneficiaries of such aid, have access to them.
The Direção Geral dos Estabelecimentos Escolares (DGEstE) is an institution in charge of managing the educational policies of the Ministry of Education and Science and supporting schools.
