Fundación UP UPADE, in conjunction with Fundación MAPFRE, has rolled out its Comunidad MAPFRE-Panamerican University project designed to promote the value of individual dignity and abilities.
The project's goal is to launch a number of different activities and advisory services for Pueblo de Santa Fe, in Mexico City. Tasks will be carried out in order to strengthen the beneficiaries' education and enable them to gain access to the labor market; there will be health promotion through medical consultations; legal advice; the promotion of people's overall health in order to have better community relations; and fostering development through female empowerment and teaching values.
The Panamerican University was founded in 1967 as a business school. The Instituto Panamericano de Humanidades (IPH) (The Panamerican Institute of Humanities) was raised to the rank of University in 1978. This educational institution currently boasts three campuses where around 12,000 students study and in which 33 different degrees are taught.
