December 13, 2013 - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
On December 10, 2013 in Rio de Janeiro, Executive Director Angélica Ocampo publicly announced Worldfund's double commitment to action for the Inter-American Partnership for Education (IAPE) program and STEM Brasil:
- Opening a second training center in Mexico and doubling the number of IAPE sessions in Mexico by 2016. With the opening of a second training site, Worldfund commits to training 720 teachers per year by the end of the 2015-16 academic year, thereby impacting an estimated 700,000 students per year and an additional 160,000 students per year thereafter.
- Increasing science and math teacher training programs in the state of São Paulo by impacting 200 new teachers and consequently 20,000 students by 2014. In 2013, STEM Brasil operated in 47 schools in São Paulo and expects to bring the program to approximately 20 additional local public schools in 2014.
