We Received The Recognition “Nôus Trayectoria De Vida”

The Foundation for Integration and Development of Latin America (FIDAL), headquartered in Ecuador, organizes year after year the National and Ibero-American Competition for Educational Excellence. For the 2017 edition, we were awarded the recognition “Nôus Trayectoria de Vida”. Our Executive Director, Patricia Sierra, received on behalf of the Pies Descalzos Foundation an important prize.

At the award ceremony of the Educational Excellence Contest, nearly a thousand guests attended; among them were state authorities, ambassadors, diplomatic corps and teachers. The event took place on Wednesday, April 19, 2017, in Quito, Ecuador.

“The Noûs Award for Life Path was raised in the hands of national and international personalities who have made history for their contribution to the social, cultural and educational improvement of peoples. Among the personalities that received the recognition for their social contribution are: Patricia Sierra of Pies Descalzos Foundation and César Ferreira, within the international category and, for Ecuador, the winners were Rosa Amelia Alvarado Roca, Gloria Astudillo Loor, José Brito Albuja , Susana Cordero de Espinosa, Barbara Lara, Carlos Paladines Escudero, Edgar Samaniego Rojas.” (FIDAL Foundation Press 2017).

It is for us an honor and a joy to receive the recognition “Nôus Trayectoria de Vida” by the FIDAL Foundation. Thank you for believing with us that all children have the right to a quality public education!
