The Government of Mexico City will reorient the following year the resources that were destined for the pension of older adults, that is, 7 billion pesos, in social programs for basic education.
Claudia Sheinbaum explained that 4 thousand 500 million pesos will be allocated for the My Scholarship to Start program, 2 billion for hot school meals, around one billion for uniforms and supplies, in addition to 380 million for Better School.
It should be remembered that last April, through a collaboration agreement, the seniors program was transferred to the federal government and it was until the end of September that the capital management ceased to take over the program.
In the company of the director of the Evaluation Board, Araceli Damian, and the director of the Guaranteed Education Trust, Araceli Berenice Hernandez Calderon, Sheinbaum said that there are about 90,000 elementary and secondary school children registered in My Scholarship to Start to get to the one million 100 thousand goal, so it extended the call until December.
He explained that the following week the Evaluation Council for Social Development of Mexico City (Evalua) together with UNICEF, will announce the company that will carry out the study to measure the impact that this scholarship has on families and thus Compare with social programs of this type worldwide.
