Digital collection “Change a life” to support young people in vulnerable situations

Young people under 25 years of age have been one of the most affected groups as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. According to INEI, during 2020, 24% of young people ceased to be part of the economically active population. In addition, a total of 124,300 young people lost their formal jobs.

Taking into account these data and the situation of COVID – 19, the Pachacútec Foundation, a non-profit organization that works with young people with limited economic resources through comprehensive education, launches the digital collection called “Change a life”, whose purpose is to raise funds to continue providing quality education and training and opportunities to improve your quality of life.

“For us, every day is a challenge that we face with great commitment because we know that there are people who do not have the opportunities to study in a good school, an institute or a university. It is because of them that we make this collection with the conviction of being able to join forces together, give a path of hope, personal and professional growth, ”says María Teresa Bomboí, vice president of the Pachacútec Foundation.

As is known, the Foundation is currently located in the Ventanilla district serving a population of approximately 250,000 people, where they have managed to create a : Initial, Primary and Secondary School, Cetpro: where they dictate the specialties of Restaurant and Bar Waiters, Call Center Operators, Personal Aesthetics, Bartenders and Home Gas Installations and an Institute , where the careers of: Business Administration, Kitchen and Industrial Electrical Engineering are taught. All this with the support of private companies.

“As a Foundation we need to work in a coordinated way with the private sector and the ordinary citizen to continue promoting initiatives that can improve and positively impact the lives of thousands of children, youth and families. This 2021, we are seeking to make strategic alliances with new companies in the sector for quality education. Any help is welcome ”, adds the vice president of Fundación Pachacútec.

With this campaign, it is expected to reach S / 230,000 to benefit 60 new young people greatly affected by the pandemic, of all educational levels for a year, expand the infrastructure created to teach classes and improve basic services such as electricity, water and drain.

To date, more than 14,000 students have been benefited, who have managed to change their lives thanks to the solidarity of companies and people of good will.

Fundación Pachacútec: 90% of young graduates managed to enter the labor market

The hard work of the Pachacútec Foundation has generated a positive impact on the new generation of young people willing to give a significant turn to their quality of life and that of their families. In fact, there is a high labor insertion rate of 90% of young people who have been trained in short specialties and technical careers according to the current demand of the market.

The foundation, which was born in 2004, offers two educational pillars related to job training: Cetpro, which provides specialized training programs of short duration and highly demanded by the job market such as: Teleoperators, restaurant and bar service, bartender , gas installations and personal aesthetics including hairdresser. They also have an Institute with 3 majors: Business Administration, Industrial Electricity and Kitchen. The latter are licensed by the Ministry of Education.

“In order to ensure the employment of young people, each educational unit has a strategic partner, which is a recognized company in the economic sector where it contributes: knowledge of the market to develop study plans, professionals to strengthen teaching staff and technical training, network of contacts for job placement and financial contributions, since the studies are subsidized, ”says María Teresa Bomboí, vice president of the Pachacútec Foundation.

POST PANDEMIC LABOR INSERTION

According to data from the foundation, some economic activities, such as those related to gastronomy and face-to-face services such as aesthetics, have been negatively affected. As a consequence, the levels of labor insertion in the programs related to these activities have been reduced.

On the other hand, activities such as call center service, online sales consultants, retail trade, mass consumption and vendors, pharmacy and digital technology services, among others, have benefited and their demand continues to increase.

In the case of graduates of the Business Administration Studies Program, the placement of graduates by type of company has varied, although the level of labor insertion has been maintained.

In the case of the Industrial Electricity study program, the level of labor insertion has been maintained, since since it is an activity that provides basic services to the community, its activity has not been affected.

To date, more than 14,000 students have been benefited, who have managed to change their lives thanks to the solidarity of companies and people of good will.
