Education

We believe that education is an important pillar for the advancement of our people. That is why we invest in initiatives and programs that offer tools that enable children, youth and adults to fully develop their human capacities through non-traditional projects. 
 

  • Operación Exito

    Operación Exito (OE) is an interactive technological tool that promotes academic excellence of students in middle and high school, especially in the public education system. It focuses on the science curriculum (physics, chemistry and biology) and aims to motivate students to learn and improve their academic performance. Popular supports this project since its inception in 2005.
