Visit of Ivan Adamovich and Franz Stirnimann in Medellín, Colombia

02.02.2013

In Medellin we had an intensive day. In the morning we visited the Instituto Justo Berrío, a college of higher technical education where we met various representatives of this school, numerous scholars and some of their parents. In the afternoon we visited the university EAFIT, where we were welcomed by the vice-rector, various professors and almost all of our scholars. Here we attended the traditional semester event of our scholars which gave us a good insight into their current work, their achievements and challenges. In the evening we had a relaxed dinner with 30 of our scholars, during which most of them reported their professional ambitions to us. We clearly noted that on the one side, these scholars were very grateful for the substantial support that Fundación Educación was giving them, mixed, on the other side, with a good portion of pride for their academic and professional achievements.
