Community of Saint Martin– Placetas, Cuba
After-School Support Program and Foodbank (Repaso & Comedor)
The after-school support program run by the Community of Saint Martin, also known as Repaso, in Placetas Cuba ensures high quality education and educational support for 650 students per day. In Cuba private schools are not allowed. However the quality of the public education system has been putting children at a disadvantage for years. Therefore the Saint Martin community decided to open an after-school support program that can help students overcome these deficiencies in the public education system. The current maximum capacity for this program is 650 students per day. However the Repaso has a waiting list of another 100 students hoping to be able to attend the after-school support program in the future.
Aside from their after-school support program, the Community of Saint Martin in Cuba also provides around 300 meals per week to local people living in poverty through their Comedor. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for nutritional support for the local people of Santa Clara has increased significantly and they expect this to keep increasing until the pandemic and economic crisis has passed. The Community of Saint Martin is currently preparing to increase the number of meals per week to 600 to hopefully help with the increase in poverty.Help us support this project
