The American embassy in Paraguay has donated $28,000 to preserve three historic Jesuit Mission Museums in Paraguay. The Ricardo Boettner Foundation and the Paraguay-Kansas Committee of Partners of the Americas received the grant from the Ambassador's Fund for Cultural Preservation.
The work will be completed by students and professors from the Universidad Nacional de Asuncion School of Architecture. University students will gain practical, marketable experience while safeguarding important historical icons.
