Misión Hábitat: Deserving Environment and Housing for everybody..

This Mission’s goals are the construction of thousands of new housing units. By the year 2021, all Venezuelans will have a house. The program also seeks to develop agreeable and integrated housing zones that make available a full range of social services — from education to healthcare, likening its vision to that of New Urbanism.



Misión Barrio Adentro (Mission Into the Neighbourhood): Mission of Love

This is a widely acclaimed social welfare program that provides comprehensive free health care, dental care and sports training to poor and traditionally underserved communities in Venezuela. Mission Barrio Adentro features the mass construction of thousands of distinctive two-story medical clinics — consultorios or doctor’s offices — as well as their staffing with an assortment of certified medical professionals who are required to live in or near the clinic itself. Mission Barrio Adentro thus constitutes an attempt to deliver a de facto form of universal healthcare that seeks guaranteed access to quality and cradle-to-grave medical attention for all Venezuelan citizens.


Misión Miranda:An Army of the Venezuelan People

The program establishes a Venezuelan military reserve composed of ordinary Venezuelan citizens; it also provides needed social benefits to unemployed Venezuelan veterans from poor socioeconomic backgrounds.


Misión Milagro (Mission Miracle): Leaving darkness behind

This is one of the most significant Social Missions that the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela has implemented within the framework of the Bolivarian Alternative for America (ALBA).  It is intended to correct or bring back eyesight to six million people from all of the Americas during the next ten years. Those who have been living in darkness for a long time, are being operated on today, free of charge. The main eye ailments treated are cataracts and pterygium. The operations are being carried out in Cuba and will soon be done in Venezuela also, allowing the patients to return to their countries with renewed hopes.
Venezuela and Canada should work together in this Mission in order to reach the established goals of treating 6,000,000 patients, from all over the American continent, during the coming decade.


Misión Piar: Let’s save the small mining enterprises.

 The mission falls in line with the current Integral Plan of Sustainable Development for Mining Communities advanced by President Chávez.

It is named after Venezuelan independence hero Manuel Carlos Piar.


Misión Guaicaipuro: Homeland for the native people.

 Launched on October 12th, 2003, the program is carried out by the Venezuelan Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources; the program seeks to restore communal land titles and human rights to Venezuela's numerous indigenous communities, in addition to defending their rights against resource and financial speculation by the dominant culture. The mission is eponymous with the famous Venezuelan indigenous tribal chief Guaicaipuro, who was instrumental in leading native resistance against Spanish colonization of Venezuela.


Misión Mercal: Towards food sovereignty.                       .

(Officially launched on April 24, 2003). The government has set up subsidized grocery stores through a state-run company called Mercal. At present some 11.36 million Venezuelans benefit from Mercal food programs on a regular basis. At least 14,208 Mission Mercal food distribution sites are spread throughout Venezuela, and 4,543 metric tons of food are distributed each day. Mission Mercal stores and cooperatives are mostly located in impoverished areas and sell generic-branded foods at discounts as great as 50%. One of their goals is to become self-sufficient by replacing food imports with products from local farmers, small businesses, and cooperatives (many of whom have also received micro-credits from Mercal in order to increase or insure their production).

Misión Robinsón I - II : Knowledge has no age.

It has three stages: training, reading and writing, and consolidation. The delivery of this Mission, named after Simón Rodríguez (alias Samuel Robinson), teacher of Simón Bolívar, is in charge of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports.

Misión Sucre: The University has dressed up as People.

This Mission offers an alternative to those wishing to continue with high-level education. It is based on the creation of the Bolivarian University of Venezuela and uses “tele-classes” (at distance education) under the coordination of a facilitator. It was originally referred to as El Plan Extraordinario Mariscal Antonio José de Sucre, shortened as Misión Sucre.


Misión Vuelvan Caras (Mission Turn Faces) To fight against unemployment and exclusion.

It has as its objective the transformation of the Venezuelan economy towards social, rather than fiscal and remunerative, goals.
