TITLE: Prefabricated School Unites for Moquegua South of Peru.
PLACE: Moquegua South of Peru.
COST: 4.000$ USD per unite
The education sector was destroyed or seriously, it left useless 50% of it’s installed capacity, which affects DIRECTLY to at least 30,000 children throughout the region. Day 22 of Julio, representatives of the Lions Club of Moquegua and Tacna were informed of the impossibility that they had to initiate the scholastic workings, for the previous reasons.
They ask for the Clubs of Lions at world-wide level to supports to them in the acquisition of 82 prefabricated Classrooms, to be able to reinitiate the scholastic workings as rapidly as possible, being the total necessity of 460 classrooms. The cost of each Classroom is of 4.000 $.
The authorities of each region indicated that more than two thousand classrooms they have been damaged seriously in his structures and almost 75 thousand students had their classrooms destroyed or made unusable. Only in Tacna, of a total of 2,896 existing classrooms, it has been confirmed that classrooms have felled 480, which means that more than 19,000 students are affected, in special in the Andean zones.
Similar is the panorama in Moquegua, there is a report sent by the Regional Subdivision notifying that there are 316 destroyed classrooms and other 211 must be repaired. Which means that more than 21,000 students have no were to study. In Arequipa the total of affected classrooms is of 1,021, which has left without scholastic roof almost 41,000 students.
The local Moquegua and Tacna Lions Clubs co-sponsors of the project must commit themselves to the following points:
make sure that the schools are installed and that are functioning is
fastest as possible.
The total cost is of 4,000 $, already installed. These units would be made in Lima, creating wealth and work for the inhabitants of Peru.
Often we have the tendency to give the money we get with our effort to other organizations and our proposal is that these funds are given to our Foundation and in the name of all the Lions of the World, LCIF can make a worthy and prestigious project.
These are the words of Gustavo Fraga Erracart, Senior Project Coordinator of Latin America and Caribbean from LCIF, Grants Department.
"I really believe the work done by Oscar and the Lions of Monquegua, has been a total success. The classrooms where better than what Oscar has promised, especially with the quality, design and esthetical aspect".
In a recent trip, he has visited the magnificent work, done by the Lions of Peru; the PID Oscar Elejalde has coordinated everything. In these pictures, you will be able to see the result of what we can achieve with the united effort of all the Clubs, logically one club can’t do a project of this size, but between all of us, the results can be spectacular.
Actually 10 of the 82 schools have been build, thanks to the generous contribution of the Swedish Lions and LCIF. There are still many schools to be built, and that depends on the generosity of the developed countries of the world. So I must please ask you to please be generous and consider donate a small quantity to the special account of LCIF. As "Designated Funds" for Peru in the account: "Peru Earthquake Relief - # 5047".
