This past weekend we supported 512 Congress: "The Innovative Power of the Teacher", where 11 individuals from Miches participated in the event, including educators, guidance counselors and coordinators for the educational centers of La Gina, TV Centro La Gina and La Culebra.
Fundación Cisneros, in coordination with Fundación Tropicalia, have been supporting this initiative, since 2017, which is promoted by INICIA Educación. The "512 Congress" consists of a series of conferences with international and local speakers who share their experiences, knowledge and best practices to contribute to improving the Dominican educational system.
In 2017 Fundación Cisneros supported the project by promoting the participation of international speakers. As of 2018, and in coordination with Fundación Tropicalia, their support included inviting teachers from schools that are beneficiaries of the PRYME program.
From Friday to Sunday (March 29-31) the participants, who traveled to the city of Santo Domingo, had the opportunity to listen to 43 exhibitors.
The event is also partnered with the Ministry of Education of the Dominican Republic (MINERD) and the National Institute for Training and Training of Teachers (INAFOCAM).
