Although a few billion Cuban Pesos are invested in the education system each year, it is evident that it is not sufficient.
The local school, Mártires del Goicuría, is located in Matanzas City, Matanzas, Cuba. Like many schools in Cuba, this elementary school is lacking in supplies. Mochilas of Hope works with the school to fulfill the scholarly needs of the students. Speaking to the children directly is the only way to truly understand their needs. We also try to make the donations as personal as possible because each child is unique in their needs and desires.
The children of Cuba need additional support from the outside world to enhance their education and make it even more enjoyable. Fortunately, we have the opportunity to help these children. And you can help!
