Apadrina Una Escuela

Monterrey, Nuevo León; August 28, 2021.- Preschool and Elementary School students will be able to return to classes thanks to theApadrina una Escuela(Sponsor a School) initiative which brings together the efforts of civil society, the governor-elect of the state of Nuevo León, Coca-Cola Mexico, and Arca Continental collaborating in the comprehensive restoration of eight schools.

As part of the start of classes ceremony at thePrimero de Mayokindergarten, in San Nicolás de los Garza, governor-elect Samuel García reiterated his commitment to making Nuevo León an example for the country and invited civil society, chambers, companies, citizens, and volunteers to continue joining their efforts to restore more education centers. In his speech, the governor-elect thanked Arca Continental and Coca-Cola Mexico for their collaboration. “Since Tuesday, when the (Sponsor a School) project was announced, several other companies have come on board. In name of the state of Nuevo León, we wish to thank Arca Continental in particular  for sponsoring five schools”.In response, Enrique Pérez Barba, director for Arca Continental in Mexico, stated that, in addition to the sponsorship originally announced, the company will sponsor another three schools ensuring decent conditions for students who will be attending these eight schools in a hybrid modality after having waited for a year and a half to do so as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The schools included in this project are in need of being totally refurbished with, among other things, clean water, drainage, electric service and maintenance, windows, fumigation, and paint, which is why Arca Continental and Coca-Cola Mexico will make the necessary investments to ensure their full restoration.

“Considering the benefits brought about by sponsoring a school, we feel fortunate to support the community we serve every day. We wish to thank governor elect, Samuel García, and the promoters of this initiative for giving us the opportunity to collaborate in this project that brings such a benefit to Nuevo León”, said the Arca Continental executive.

 As part of the commitment of the Coca-Cola Mexican Industry to generate a positive environmental, economic, and social impact, Arca Continental also participates in other efforts of this kind in the territories where it is present—including projects such as the nature-based wetlands—with a vision of transforming the present and creating a better future for the next generations.
