We work to achieve the permanence of students from low income families in the formal education system, and to contribute to the improvement of the learning process as well as accompany and support young students who have graduated from the School Scholarship Program, in their transition to the adult educative-working world. The work methodology includes providing job training and opportunities, scholarship information, among others. Educational mentoring is one of the keys to achieve these goals.

Cimientos believes education is the essential tool needed to overcome the vicious cycle of poverty – lack of training – social exclusion. Cimientos’ programs originated with this belief, which continues to be its motivating factor to this day. (view small | med | large | orig)
