EducarUno was established in 2005 as a key part of Consenso Uno, AC. We immediately started working on fostering the dynamics that would enable us to achieve positive social change.
From the beginning we were convinced that quality education, and the values of honesty and truth from the family, strengthened the basis for cultural, social and economic problem solving.
This is why we decided to start raising funds in innovative ways to benefit Mexico’s leading students through scholarships for their studies in middle and higher education.
In 2009, we started the projects that we have today. Our beginning was the opening of Docet Institute, with the goal of providing the best early childhood education through an educational model of excellence supported by international experts, educational facilities with pedagogical architecture, and most importantly, committed teachers of the greatest moral standards. In the last three years, we have achieved an steady growth in student enrollments, whilst always seeking total satisfaction of the parents.
Additionally, we took the Barcelona sports model and adapted it to the Mexican context through the creation and management of mass participation sports centers and facilities of the highest quality at very affordable prices. We have presented the model at various universities in Nuevo Leon, Guanajuato, Sinaloa, and other states, with the aim of building and operating this type of sports centers in less developed areas. At the same time, we obtained the approval of the INDE (Institute of Physical Culture and Sports in Nuevo Leon) to implement the Barcelona sports model in the state.
In 2010 we brought to Mexico the project “Design for Change”, which originated in India, with the goal of empowering Mexican children to be agents of change that our country needs, using the methodology: Feel, Imagine, Do and Share. In two years we have tripled the number of social projects: from 1,500 to more than 4,300 documented projects. The 32 states of the country are involved with around 430,000 participating students.
In addition to continuing to strengthen and grow our existing projects, we are currently working on technology projects of the highest quality. Using innovative technology tools, we seek to democratize education with the aim of making the best teachers and leaders available to reach as many students as possible through an engaging platform where they can share their knowledge.
In these ways, EducarUno works every day to realize its mission and best hope for the future: to contribute to complete human development through all dimensions of education.
