The process involved 10 prioritized schools in the 10 provinces of San Martin and, more specifically, 15 prioritized schools in the districts covered by the project. The experience also included other actions carried out with students, teachers, parents, permanent civil defence committees and the corresponding school brigades of prioritized educational institutions.
