The Varsavsky Foundation has joined forces with the AVINA Foundation (www.avina.com), in an effort to bring technology to education in Latin America. As a first step toward this goal, the two foundations have jointly donated $500,000 to Fundación Chile to create a national, educational internet portal for Chile. The grant money has been used to create high quality educational contents for student, teachers, families and researchers. The portal combines elements of two existing Chilean educational sites, (www.enlaces.cl),(created by the Enlaces Project of the Ministry of Education) and (www.ie2000.cl), (created by Fundación Chile). The portal was launched in March 2001.
