Thus OSCASI was born on February 21 that year. Initially, it started with a home-school for the community. Thereafter, several preschools and a health post were founded.
Upon reaching the 1990s, the school dropout problem in Petare became evident and OSCASI responded by implementing the Alternative Schools program, which allow to level out-of-school children up to sixth grade.
In 1992, OSCASI founded the first Alternative School named “Acción Educativa”. Today, there are two alternative schools, which benefit more than 150 students in Petare.
