- Supplemental matriculation studies for high school youth affected by the recent teacher strike that lasted for 65 days. IVN is seeking funding to provide additional tutoring that will make up for the study time missed during this crucial period. Students from low-income communities where IVN operates often cannot afford the luxury of private tutors. Grades received on the matriculation exams determine whether or not pupils can continue onto higher education.
