The cornerstone of society’s progress

Education has been at the center of all the Barrié Foundation’s activities since its inception. Pedro Barrié himself determined that the shortcomings in this sector were a primary factor hindering economic development. Thus (and in step with an increasingly sophisticated society) the foundation’s initial efforts focused at first on material improvements, such as the creation of educational infrastructure in engineering and architecture, fields that were considered at the time strategically important to development.
