Five community leaders in Mexico have been selected as part of Facebook’s Community Leadership Program (FCLP) and will receive scholarships of up to 50,000 dollars.

In a press release, the social network explained that more than 100 community leaders around the world had been chosen as part of the Program that will give away USD$10 million to promote the creation and development of local communities.

22 of the community leaders that will receive the support of FCLP are from Latin America. Five of them are from Mexico: The “SuperCívicos,” “Women Who Code Mérida,” “OncoAyuda,” “Mexicanas en el Mundo,” and “School on the Road.”

Furthermore, Facebook will offer a residence for a Latin American leader who will collaborate with the web platform’s team and receive a personalized leadership development course to bring his or her proposal to life.

“This time, Facebook chose Brazilian Paula Pfeifer, who will receive one million dollars to finance “Crônicas da Surdez,” a community she created to help people with hearing problems such as herself.
