EducaSID is a program of initiatives that strengthen Grupo SID’s commitment to quality education, building growth footprints for an inclusive and sustainable future, which began in 2009 to contribute to the development of the Dominican Republic.
The mission of this program is to provide children and adults with scholarships, infrastructures, and adequate school tools, which facilitate the teaching-learning process, and in this way, contribute to equating opportunities so that everyone can access quality education. To promote inclusive and equitable quality training, which, in turn, facilitates lifelong learning opportunities and improves the standard of living for all in support of sustainable development.
“An inclusive, relevant and quality education is our commitment to sustainable and lasting development for our country and all its people. With our values GROWTH, SERVICE, PROTECTION and SHARING as a guide, we are determined to develop the full potential of the Dominican Republic, working with energy and passion, contributing our creativity and with a focus on excellence to offer solutions that make a difference and lead us to make our dream of a tomorrow possible.”
Grupo SID through EducaSID, seeks to promote the permanent well-being of the Dominican family, base and axis of the nation, supporting our employees, consumers and their respective communities, helping them to obtain a level of education that contributes to their progress.
