The launch of the program was part of the celebration of the institution’s 50th anniversary and was attended by Dominican media directors.
APEC Centers for Distance Education (CENAPEC), launched the Sponsors of Education program, a program designed with the aim of sponsoring low-income youth and adults who cannot afford their high school studies.
The launch of the program was framed within the celebration of the institution’s 50 years and began on the stage of a breakfast, where the country’s media directors participated.
During the event, Sonia Villanueva de Brouwer, president of CENAPEC’s Board of Directors, named Mrs. Jatnna Tavárez as “Godmother of Education”, while recognizing the Ministry of Education (MINERD), and the companies Fundación Farach and Total Energies Dominicana, for supporting tuition fees for young people and adults in different ways.
Through the activity, the directors of the media in attendance promised to echo this cause and thus contribute to the Dominican business community being able to sponsor hundreds of poor young and adult resources, so that in this way they can assume their social responsibility in favor of the country’s education and support the objective of the program.
During breakfast, those present witnessed the history of CENAPEC through a testimonial video that put them in contact with the 16 campuses that the institution has throughout the country, the development of the 20 academic programs and the more than 160,000 students that the study center has graduated throughout its history.
With this program, CENAPEC reaffirms its commitment to continue providing opportunities for economic and social development in a sustainable manner to those who have not completed their high school studies, through its innovative and flexible distance learning model.
The event was held at the main office of CENAPEC, on Wednesday, July 6, 2022.
