PACL (Local Community Assistance Programs)

The PACL (Local Community Assistance Programs, in its Spanish acronym) are those identifications or needs that are detected in the immediate context where we are and that behind them there is the story of a person, a community or a small local entity,

and they may or may not have an urgency to apply.
Many of these people and stories will circulate through our day-to-day lives that we will explain to seek your involvement and support. Programs that have already been covered will be identified accordingly.


Our first PACL package are related to the current school of our counterpart the local NGO VCRO (Vulnerable Children Relief Organization), since until the new school can be a reality, the (good) functioning of the current one is in a difficult situation, since the few supports they had have stopped being received after the Covid19 crisis. Keep in mind that school attendance and the service provided is completely free for the children of this community. Support for some of the current needs detected will influence the ability to allocate the few resources that are currently available to provide and / or strengthen others.
