Our foundation was created in 2006 by José Shabot Cherem. He has always had a great entrepreneurial spirit, while working at a construction site, José realized that many of his fellow bricklayers could not read neither write. For that reason, in 2004 our founder started to deliver on-site lessons to construction workers. In so doing, they would be enabled to obtain a better quality of life.
This is how Construyendo y Creciendo was created. Its main objective is to provide education and job training to construction workers. We install classrooms in their own workplace.
In 14 years, we have a track record of 120 classrooms installed over 16 States of Mexico. We have benefited more than 25,000 workers.
As well, we install Mobile Classrooms in public places. This sort of classrooms has allowed us to benefit entire communities, and not only construction workers.
Since 2017, BSc in Architecture, Roxana Fabris, became our Executive President.
Our mission is to offer quality, formal, and comprehensive education to construction workers in order to provide them with personal and professional development opportunities capable of transforming their quality of life and triggering a positive social change tin their closest circles.
To be leaders in combating educational backwardness of construction workers, encouraging them to finish their primary and secondary school, so they can achieve personal, social, and economic development opportunities for them, their families, and our Mexico.
Construyendo y Creciendo programs are based on the values of respect, fairness, justice, solidarity, honesty and integrity.
