Great news for the educational community of Secocha!
We are happy to share that more than 1100 students from the town of Secocha, in the province of Camaná (Arequipa), will benefit from the social investment made by Fidamar – International Fund to Aid Artisanal Miners, for the corrective maintenance of educational infrastructure and equipment of classrooms in the Educational Institution No. 40194 “Ricardo Palma”.

This project becomes a reality thanks to the inter-institutional cooperation agreement signed between Fidamar, the Regional Education Management of Arequipa (GREA) and the Local Education Management Unit (UGEL) of Camaná.
“Our objective is clear: to contribute to the educational community having adequate spaces and optimal conditions for the development of their activities during the 2024 school year. We are grateful for the support received from Cecilia Jarita Padilla, regional education manager of Arequipa, and Diego Martínez, director of UGEL Camaná, who recognize the importance of joining efforts between civil society and the State to close the existing educational gaps”, reported Fidamar.

Educational institution No. 40194 “Ricardo Palma” plays a fundamental role in local education for primary and secondary level students, being the largest educational center in the area.
At Fidamar, we are committed to the continuous improvement of educational services in artisanal mining communities, and we will continue working together to make quality education possible for all!
