Educación para todos

La Fundación Metropolitana desde su creación en el año 2004, ha incentivado a miles de jóvenes ecuatorianos a la consecución de un título universitario a través del otorgamiento de becas estudiantiles que permitan a personas de bajos recursos y de grupos históricamente vulnerables a conseguir su profesionalización.

Hoy en día, la Fundación Metropolitana promueve dos programas de becas con el fin de brindar las mejores posibilidades educativas a la población:

1) Becas estudiantiles y ayudas económicas para el apoyo en la obtención de un título universitario

En conjunto con la Universidad Metropolitana del Ecuador, la Fundación Metropolitana brinda becas y ayudas económicas que promuevan la inclusión, acceso, permanencia y culminación de estudios en la educación superior a estudiantes que carezcan de los recursos necesarios, además de la promoción de políticas educativas inclusivas, sin discriminación de raza, género, etnia, discapacidad, orientación sexual, u otros.

2) Becas académicas para la educación continua y programas sociales

A través del Centro de Educación Continua de la Fundación Metropolitana, se promueven cursos, certificaciones, conferencias, programas educativos que tienen como fin la especialización, actualización de conocimientos y adquisición de habilidades profesionales que permitan a sus estudiantes mejorar su nivelacadémico, nivel de vida, inclusión social y desarrollo.

Changing Lives

Our project with the company ActivaMark, aims to develop 3D prosthesis to meet the needs of people with some level of physical disability.

Through the creation of prototypes in 3D images, a group of people is reached who for various reasons have an absence in their body parts, thus changing the lives of thousands of people affected by this type of problem, which in many cases represents a hindrance for social inclusion.

Also, we promote Educational Innovation through the digitization of academic processes, with an accompaniment in the training of faculty on these technologies, in addition to the technological support that is provided to the different pedagogical projects in which it intervenes.

Breaking frontiers

Fundación Metropolitana, through its sign language learning awareness and training project, seeks to increase the knowledge of citizens and professionals in the area of Education, Health and Justice for the social inclusion of people with hearing impairment.

When we think of inclusion, we think of unity; to know and understand that social diversity will lead us to be better people, citizens, teachers, colleagues, and professionals.

Through this project, we seek to promote inclusive language practices aimed at all types of individuals who require special knowledge for the correct care of these practices, and who, for various reasons, do not know or do not have the necessary resources.
