Since 2000, the Ficohsa Foundation began the Educating Our Future program, dedicated to contributing to the pre-school education of children between 3 and 6 years of age from vulnerable and economically disadvantaged areas, through the construction, reconstruction and sustainable and comprehensive adoption of Pre-school Centers.

The commitment of parents, teachers and other community members is key to the successful development and sustainability of the program, which is part of a tripartite alliance of private enterprise, community and govern.

PRE-SCHOOL CENTRES OF EXCELLENCE

Children who attend a Ficohsa Foundation Pre-School Centre of Excellence (CPE) receive specialized training from teachers who are known for their commitment and high performance in the teaching process.
The CPE is an innovative educational model, whose objective is to offer children the opportunity to receive a quality education that guarantees them a better preparation to enter the next level of their formative stage.

There are currently 45 Pre-School Centers of Excellence in Honduras, selected in those communities that have demonstrated a high desire to develop and where parents played a very important role in the education of their children.
