“Access to a good education, in terms of quality and infrastructure, is a vital aspect that ensures the development of a community. In PERU LNG, we are proud to lead initiatives hand in hand with the local government, for the benefit of thousands of children and adolescents, in compliance with all technical standards set by the Ministry of Education,” said Maria Julia Aybar, vice president and general manager of PERU LNG.

Thanks to this training, the municipality has been able to access public financing for the construction of this important project, valued at 5 million soles.
