FOMILEMIO II delivers 119 title deeds to schools in El Salvador

On July 19, FOMILENIO II awarded a total of 119 schools titles deeds in 33 municipalities to the Ministry of Education (MINED). This delivery helps the implementation of MINED’s Integrated Inclusive School System (SI-EITP) model in 344 schools in El Salvador.

In the event participated the Director of the Educational Complex of San Dionisio Carlos Murillo, the Mayor of San Dionisio Pedro Vásquez, the Executive Director of FOMILENIO II William Pleites, Country’s Director of the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) Martha Keays and the Ministry of Education Carlos Canjura.

In this second delivery, 66 schools of Ahuachapán, Sonsonate, La Libertad, San Salvador, La Paz, Usulután, San Miguel and La Unión received the title deeds of the properties where they are located and are added to another 53 schools to which their situation was regularized in December.

The transfer of property rights of schools has been possible thanks to donations of natural persons and Mayors Offices. The Executive Director of FOMILENIO II William Pleites said: “It is a difficult task that has required the participation of the Property Legalization Institute (ILP) and the Attorney General’s Office. We have also counted on the collaboration of financial institutions, including the Superintendency of the Financial System and the cooperatives or owners, who would have donated the properties but not completed the legalization process of the donation.”

FOMILENIO II works hand in hand with MINED promoting projects that contribute to reach the goals of educational quality policy, which proposes the development of citizen and productive skills in order to train people able to access dignified jobs.
