Jorge José Traquino

After a fatal car accident involving our former director and "father" of thousands of children, ASEM decided to name its schools after him: "Jorge José Traquino - Macurungo School" and "Jorge José Traquino - Manga School". In his honor and in gratefulness for the great work he has done to contribute to a better world.
