*Centros de oficios*

The people from Jalisco are currently facing a serious challenge. The lack of economic resources and education opportunities has increased in the past years. This has created a huge lack of interest in the development of the community as the most vulnerable people imagine the possibility of a brighter future completely out of their reach.

In order to fix this problem, we've planed the development of a self sustainable multidisciplinary center for education and development. It will be open to the public and it will deliver technical trainings such as: ironworks, forging, electronics and other crafts in order to provide young people with the tools to boost the economy of the area.

Over the past two years, we've trained over 280 members of the community creating a positive impact in the society. Our goal this year is to expand the educational offer in ironworks including a program focusing on new materials such and open musical and audiovisual production allowing the use of the campus and it's equipment for personal projects for every member of our community. This will allow opportunities such as a musician producing his own material in a profesional way, an ironworker being able to create his own project and a plastic artist being able to finish his masterpiece.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
