IEASA AND THE COMMUNITY

Through the Institutional Relations Management and the Communication Management, the company performs different tasks and alliances that currently contribute to the growth of IEASA.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Corporate social responsibility actions carried out by the company are destined, mainly, to create better educational conditions at formal and informal education institutions located in neglected communities in vulnerable situations.

While pursuing the mission to improve or to establish decent educational conditions, IEASA reinforced the sponsorship for educational institutions located in the province of Salta and in the district of Ensenada, Province of Buenos Aires. Also, through alliances with Fundación Cimientos, UNICEF and Fundación Sí, it sponsors students from Ensenada high schools, rural areas of Jujuy and college students in Salta.

Schools:

  • An amount of 65 school kits were delivered for the beginning of the school year 2016.
  • Ten computers that were recycled by Fundación Equidad were donated. The delivery was managed by Fundación Andesmar.

  • We built and delivered seven bookshelves to store reading books and storybooks donated in 2016.
  • For the beginning of the school year 2017, 2018 and 2019, we delivered 65 backpacks with school kits. Each of them was prepared taking into account the needs and ages of each student, following the direction of the Headmistress of the Institute.
  • We delivered electrical materials to connect the institute to the electrical grid and, therefore, to allow the children to use appliances such as televisions and computers.
  • Each of the students received toys for Children’s Day. The children received board games, educational games, dolls, balls, among other toys.
  • A water well was built, which allowed the school as well as the 320 people in the Chané Community to have safe water for the first time.
  • We established a piping connection to allow water to reach bathrooms and the kitchen of the institute.

  • We donated a refrigerator, an electric oven, a microwave and an electric kettle.
  • A water well was built, with the corresponding operating water pump. This provides safe water not only to both students and teachers, but also to the entire community who suffered from drinking water shortage due to contamination produced by liquid filtering from a dumpsite near the well they used to use.
  • Two computers were donated, recycled by the IEASA Computer Systems Department.
  • For Children’s Day, toys were delivered. The students received board games, balls and staffed animals, among other toys.

  • There was a circus show for the end of the school year celebration 2017.
  • We delivered eight usable computers and two printers that were restored by the personnel from the ENARSA Computer System Department. In addition, they installed the software so that the children could use the equipment.

  • Backpacks with school kits were delivered to the 28 students who graduated from kindergarten so that they could start the primary level with the necessary educational supplies.
  • Also, backpacks and kits were delivered to the 15 students who graduated from primary level and who will start high school in 2018.
  • We delivered backpacks and school supplies to the 34 students who graduated from kindergarten and primary level in December 2018.

During the year 2016, two activities were undertaken with the scholarship students. The first activity consisted on a guided visit to the Thermoelectric Plant Ensenada de Barragán. The second activity, closer to the end of the year, was the annual seminar of Foundations where sponsors and sponsees shared a morning with several activities to get to know each other.

In 2017, we renewed the commitment to Fundación Cimientos to support the school life of 7 boys and girls in vulnerable situations who attend School No. 4 in Ensenada. Through the Future Graduates Program, these children –between the ages of 12 and 13- receive individual educational support; financial support through monthly scholarships; and opportunity for exchanges with peers. Likewise, voluntary work by IEASA employees was held, and they became sponsors of the 7 scholarship holders.

A meeting was organized for the purposes of strengthening the relationship and providing space for dialogue and exchange between sponsors and sponsees. The meeting included a tour on board a tourist bus throughout the City of Buenos Aires, a lunch, and the provision of a notebook to each of the students. Said notebooks are part of the unused equipment of IEASA and which the Computer System Department refurbished so that they could be donated.

  • The school received 21 computers and 2 printers.
  • In Humahuaca, we participated in the graduation ceremony of 9 students who received a small present in recognition of the efforts made in order to finish their studies in 2017.
  • We delivered 190 school kits for the beginning of the school year 2018.
  • In 2018, we accompanied the students who finished their studies at the venue Agua de Castilla, a rural area located 3,600 meters above sea level. They received, together with graduates from ten other venues, a backpack and school kits.

We were able to incorporate higher education to the activities of CSR of IEASA. Thus, the Company collaborates with the task of improving educational conditions in the most neglected places at the initial level, as well as at the high school level and finally, at the university level.

The sponsorship became a reality due to the company’s decision to allocate 30 per cent of the budget of the End of Year Event in 2018 to scholarships for 8 college students who are accommodated in a residency belonging to Fundación Sí in Salta.

A total of 42 young people stay in the residence, 8 of which receive IEASA scholarship. The Project University Residence is destined to young graduates from rural schools who lack sufficient resources to receive education at the higher level. The scholarships consist in guaranteeing: accommodations; food; financial support for the acquisition of studying materials; travel expenses to get to the studying centers and, also, to go back home and visit their families; medical, psychological and psychopedagogical assistance, as well as voluntary tutors who accompany and assist the residents.

We want our brand POTENCIARSE, TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER to be the vehicle that summons us to reinforce our actions of CSR along with our partners and suppliers in those communities where IEASA is present.

CSR actions that are carried out by IEASA are meant to improve educability conditions.

While following that objective, which leads to ease the access to education and to improve the quality and the structural conditions of institutions, IEASA sponsors educational institutions located in the provinces of Salta, Jujuy and in the Ensenada district.

Join PotenciaRSE

In Salta, there are two sponsored establishments: the rural School No. 4777 in the rural area El Algarrobal, attended by 60 students; and School No. 4491, in Saucelito, Orán, attended daily by 10 children.

In the province of Jujuy, together with UNICEF, ENARSA collaborates with 11 Information and Communication Technologies-Mediated Rural High Schools (ICT). These are not traditional high schools, in the sense that they are hundreds of kilometers away from the central office in the capital of Jujuy, where there is a management team working together with a group of teachers from different subjects that are connected, through different devices that use Internet, to classrooms located at scattered rural regions in Jujuy. A total of 165 students attend these classrooms.

Another sponsored institution is the Complementary Educational Center No. 802 in Ensenada, Province of Buenos Aires, attended by 200 children between the ages of 3 and 17.

Each of these sponsored institutions present many needs, which is why we seek to join our efforts, combining wills and collaboration to achieve the objective of improving educational conditions. For that reason, it is important that donations are made in a responsible and respectful manner. This means that the elements and materials should be new or in good condition to able to be reused.

VOLUNTEERING

One book, a thousand opportunities

After identifying, during a visit, the shortage of books and reading material at the school El Algarrobal, a campaign was undertaken whereby employees donated 148 reading books and storybooks that were later delivered to the rural institution, where they were received with much joy and appreciation.

One pallet, one piece of furniture

With recycled pallets and teamwork, a group of employees built two cupboards, a shelf and a table for the sponsored rural school. When arriving at Club Unión in Munro, where representatives of Molet awaited to begin the work, the participants were divided into four groups. Each group had one goal to achieve: to put together a piece of furniture for the kitchen of the School No. 4777, El Algarrobal.

After hours of work, the mission was completed, as the furniture was finally ready to be sent to Salta.

Our Energy for the Children

As a result of the need identified at schools in Salta, for Children’s Day 2017, the employees were summoned to participate in the donation of toys to be delivered to 97 students who attend rural schools. The summons was successful, as a total of 234 toys and games were collected.

Food Bank

Food Banks, which motto is less hunger, more future, work as a bridge between the food industry and the meal centers and institutions that receive help. A group of employees participated in the classification of 1,200 kilos of food, which resulted in the completion of 3,600 meals for children who attend meal centers or other social organizations in the City of Buenos Aires and in the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area. Thus, IEASA personnel contributed in a small way to reduce hunger and to prevent the waste of food conducted by the Food Bank.
