For more than 20 years, we have made an important social contribution to the improvement of the country’s educational quality, favorably impacting the lives of 1,615,231 students and 21,886 teachers from more than 2,000 Colombian public schools. We also assisted more than 6 thousand microentrepreneurs, generated 250 knowledge products related to education, and built more than 100 partnerships to increase our social performance in the territories.

Today, in our never-ending search to advance, innovate and broaden horizons, we have listened to and addressed the new needs of our communities. Therefore, we have joined efforts in the regions to achieve greater social impact and continue working for sustainable development, protecting the environment, strengthening education, and boosting productivity in the communities where we have a presence in Colombia and Peru.
