CSAV signs agreement for the improvement of the Padre André Coindre School
The works will improve the infrastructure of the school located in San Antonio, and will last for a year, benefiting more than 600 vulnerable students from pre-kindergarten to eighth grade who attend daily.
The agreement signed on June 9, between Compañía Sud Americana de Vapores, represented by its CEO, Óscar Hasbún; the director of the school, Daniel Silva; and the director of the Fundación Huella Local, Gonzalo Vial, gave the official go-ahead for the project that will improve the sanitary facilities and build a new multipurpose court that will be available to the entire educational community.
The initiative, which is part of the work that the Compañía Sud Americana de Vapores is carrying out with the community of San Antonio, began to take shape a couple of months ago, in which, after meetings with the representatives of the school, the main deficiencies were identified, especially in terms of infrastructure. In that context, many alternatives were evaluated. “This is great news for our boys and girls because we will be able to count on an adequate space for recreation and meeting with a high standard”, highlighted the Director of the school, Daniel Silva.
The central objective of the project, which will be carried out by the Fundación Huella Local, is to guarantee an adequate environment for academic development. “We are very happy to start this project where we seek to support a school in a city that has the largest port in our country. This school is one of the most vulnerable in the area and with the worst conditions in terms of infrastructure” said Óscar Hasbún, CEO of CSAV.
The project, which will last for a year, specifically contemplates the improvement of the bathrooms on the site, and the construction of a multi-court, which will directly benefit the more than 600 students from pre-kindergarten to eighth grade who attend the school.
The initiative is part of a series of actions carried out by CSAV, which are part of its Sustainability Policy, which seeks to formalize the purpose of being an actor in the sustainable development of global trade, considering among its variables, the well-being of society and the dissemination of more efficient and environmentally friendly practices.
