Education for all
Since its creation in 2004, Fundación Metropolitana has encouraged thousands of young Ecuadorians to obtain a university degree through the granting of student scholarships that allow low-income people and historically vulnerable groups to achieve their university degree.
Today, Fundación Metropolitana promotes two scholarship programs in order to provide the best educational possibilities to the population:
1) Student scholarships and financial aid to support obtaining a university degree
In accordance with Universidad Metropolitana del Ecuador, Fundación Metropolitana provides scholarships and financial aid that promote inclusion, access, permanence and completion of studies in higher education to students who lack the necessary resources, in addition to promoting inclusive educational policies , without discrimination of race, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, or others.
2) Academic scholarships for continuing education and social programs
Through the Centro de Educación Continua de la Fundación Metropolitana, courses, certifications, conferences, educational programs are promoted that aim to specialize, update knowledge and acquire professional skills that allow students to improve their academic level, standard of living, social inclusion and development.
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.
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.
