Glasswing’s Community Schools program receives distinguished IDB award
The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) presented Glasswing International with the Juscelino Kubitschek Visionaries Award, which recognizes the contributions of top non-governmental organizations that develop transformative projects in Latin America and the Caribbean on October 9th. Celina de Sola, Co-Founder and Vice President of Glasswing, received the honor and a check for $25,000 from Carmiña Moreno, IDB’s Representative in El Salvador, in order to continue implementing its Community Schools program which is currently carried out in 100 public schools and impacts a total of 125 communities in Central America and the Caribbean. Through this initiative, Glasswing will continue developing academic and cultural programs, as well as English classes, robotics courses, and other educational and recreational activities. The prize was created in 2009, in tribute to the President of Brazil, Juscelino Kubitschek (1956-1961), who was instrumental in the creation of the IDB, the first regional development bank in the world.
