Fundación Fidal receives recognition for its support to education
The "Juan de Salinas" Educational Unit, within the framework of the solemn session for its 66 years of creation, delivered this Tuesday, July 4, a special recognition to the FIDAL Foundation for opening spaces to teachers from Ecuador and Latin America through the Contest of Educational Excellence. Annual contest that seeks to strengthen education, through motivation, incentive, training and recognition of teachers with pedagogical projects, which due to their excellence can and should be replicated inside and outside our countries, in which several teachers from this institution participated.
Since 2008, Fundación Fidal has delivered its full potential to strengthening education, through training and recognition of educators who, day by day, contribute their knowledge, time and innovative ideas to launch projects that, due to their excellence, they can be replicated in the region.
Nine years of the Educational Excellence Contest are translated into 13 applicant countries, 848 educational projects, 1707 participating teachers and 69 winning teachers, who have received specialization courses, scholarships for master's degrees, inside and outside the country, international observation tours, among others. Awards that seek to raise the capacities of teachers to bring out the best in education, helping to strengthen the teacher's self-esteem for regional development.
