Quality infrastructure for sustainable education

2023 May 11
Education is a fundamental tool for promoting sustainable development around the world, as it enables upward socioeconomic mobility and helps to reduce poverty.

To achieve the goals of the 2030 Agenda, the United Nations (UN) has set forth Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4), which aims to ensure inclusive, equitable, and quality education that provides lifelong learning opportunities for all.

However, in order to achieve sustainable education, school infrastructure must be in place to provide a safe, comfortable, and adequate learning environment for students that is resilient to multiple crises and rapid technological changes.

Creating school infrastructure requires comprehensive projects that support more efficient teaching and administrative work, but above all, that are responsive to the conditions and needs of students, their families, and the communities where they are located, while taking into account the care of the environment.

At Marhnos, we are committed to sustainable development and quality education. In 2022, we launched the COAR Centro de Peru project, which aims to design, finance, build, and equip three high-performance schools in Pasco, Huancavelica, and Cusco. The project will benefit close to 900 students of academic excellence each school year during the 20 years of the public-private partnership that supports it.

The COARs are public schools that adhere to the highest national and international standards for high-performing students in the third, fourth, and fifth grades of secondary school. This initiative is part of the Peruvian Ministry of Education (Minedu), and its objective is to train young people to a high academic level.

During this period at Marhnos, we will be dedicated to creating and maintaining educational infrastructure with strict performance and quality standards, as well as transparent management of public resources and high social profitability. In this way, government institutions can focus on improving their educational plans and management processes, contracting administration, and other educational services.

This is a significant project considering that the World Economic Forum ranks Peru 127th out of 137 nations in terms of the quality of its education system. The country has a growing demand for school infrastructure, and with the COAR Centro project, we aim to support the reduction of the educational gap, raise the academic level, and promote the integral development of Peruvian youth, advancing the fulfillment of the UN's 2030 Agenda.
