It is within the framework of our exchanges with El Sistema de Venezuela that we travelled to Caracas in order to meet with El Sistema officials. This first visit allowed us to learn about the internal operational mode of the neighborhood schools (núcleos). Additionally, we met with the executive director Eduardo Méndez, Enrique Abreu and Patricia Abdelnour, who is in charge of international relations. It was during that visit, that the details of the agreement between our two foundations were finalized. The signing is planned to take place by next June in Santo Domingo.
This cultural and educational agreement will allow Fiesta Clásica to develop a curriculum for the children that will comply with the requirements and goals of El Sistema. It is an essential alliance that will ensure an educational quality whose excellence has been widely acknowledged for over more than forty years.
