The tag translates from Spanish to “one coffee for USB” (Universidad Simon Bolivar). The concept comes from the idea that every USB alumnus can donate the equivalent of the cost of a coffee on the street in a monthly or weekly basis, enabling us to fund projects to improve all the USB current deficiencies.
You can always donate more, and there are many programs to select from. An average of US$ 10 a month made by 5 out of 10 USB alumni living outside Venezuela can generate US$ 1,000,000 / year!
Because most people don’t drink coffee alone, and collaboration and networking are important for professionals, we coordinate the organizations of meetings around the globe on a periodic basis for alumni and Venezuelans to meet, network and exchange ideas. Most of the time other beverages are involved.
