Visit of Isabel Stirnimann to Lima, Perú


The main goal of my visit to Lima was to meet our scholars and alumni and to visit the newly opened campus of the UTEC.

I met our alumni and scholars during a very relaxed evening at the house of Bertha Aspillaga, our local executive secretary. It was stimulating to see how many of our alumni exchanged their experiences as entrepreneurs and members of management with the scholars and motivated them to believe in their personal success.

At the UTEC I was welcomed by the person responsible for scholarships and university development. 2014 marked the year in which Fundación Educación, in close coordination with its local committee, started a new cooperation with UTEC. Hence, this meeting served the purpose to define how this new cooperation was to be developed over time. I gained a first-class impression of this university, especially as an institution that due to its sustainable, social and innovative approach wants to foster progress. 

Further I met with the representatives of the local committee, and in particular Bertha Aspillaga, for various work meetings.
