Enrique Castillo Monge School Inauguration
cbc and its brand Pepsi and Guatemorfosis is the first company that joins Ricardo Arjona and his Adentro Foundation to improve education in Guatemala by opening the second school of this initiative. The school has the name of Enrique Castillo Monge, a visionary with an entrepreneurial spirit that dreamt big and worked with passion to achieve his dreams. He always considered education the best way to transform a country and that comprehensive education is a right for children that allows them better opportunities. The school opening responds to both dreams.
The model of Adentro Foundation strengthens and promotes the participation of students, teachers and parents, encourages community projects of wellness, health, environment and cultural revitalization. With this model, high level education, innovation and technology is combined with art development and dissemination as elements for the individual and society´s development. Also added to this value are sports as a fountain of wellness, health and discipline.
The school, located in Aldea El Porvenir, between the municipalities of Alotenango and Escuintla, began operations in January 2016 welcoming 200 preschool and elementary school students. This is a tangible manifestation of Guatemorfosis. It is no longer an invitation to change; the change has started with positive and concrete results in favor of children and the country.
