Chile is implementing a Trade School
project which has provided training in non-industrial cleaning to 20 persons with mild to moderate learning disabilities
. The initiative, which has been carried out in the town of Los Andes, has served to boost the education of these young persons with the aim of providing them with better employment opportunities
in the future.
Training has been imparted by the Adecco
Technical Training Department, together with staff from Ferrovial Services Chile working as volunteers
and providing the necessary tools to enable this group of young people to carry out their job in the future. Following the success of this first initiative, Ferrovial Services is working to carry out a similar project in the town of Antofagasta.
The Trade School project has been developed together with the municipality of Los Andes. City mayor Manuel Rivera explained:
“I am delighted that Ferrovial Services has provided this training course, allowing persons with disabilities to receive the tools that are critical for them to further their development.”
He also valued very highly Ferrovial Services Chile’s commitment to carrying out social actions to contribute to the communities in which it operates
Ferrovial Services’ commitment to social projects
As part of its social corporate responsibility
, Ferrovial Services has committed to being an active and reliable actor in all the communities in which it operates, boosting social and economic development and reducing the environmental and social impact of its activities.
Commitment with clients must go further than simply offering a wide range of innovative services with the highest quality standards. This responsibility must be understood as a long-term commitment, affording added value in solving the social challenges faced by the communities in which operations are carried out.
Ferrovial Services works in three main areas, consistent with the nature of its activities and the social value which the company can provide to the communities in which it works: education, work opportunities and environment.
