Fundación Banco Macro and Fundación Educando widen the scope of the "Computing Education" Program in the Province of Jujuy

San Pedro, Jujuy, November 4, 2015. Fundación Banco Macro and Fundación Educando announce the launching of a new stage in the "Computing Education Program", which invites young and adult citizens in the Province of Jujyu to attend computing education classes.

This stage involves the expansion to cover the districts of La Mendieta and Perico and the extension of the registration date in the district of San Pedro. In the frame of the Program 20 workshops will be held, free of charge, with duration of one month and a half each. The workshops will be held at a mobile unit unit equipped with 20 notebooks donated by Fundación Banco Macro.

The operation of the Program at each district will be as follows:

San Pedro de Jujuy: The workshop shall be held at the school Jesús Maestro, at the pensioner center Mutual de Jubilados y Pensionados del Ramal, and at the secondary school Bachillerato provincial N° 11 Monseñor Sixto Villoldo. Those interested in registering in the program may enroll until November 12 at Colegio Jesús Maestro, located at Sarmiento 68, Monday through Friday from 08:00 am to 6:00 pm and at the branch of Banco Macro de San Pedro from 09:00 am to 2:00 pm.

La Mendieta: The workshop shall be held at the pensioner center Asociación Mutual de Jubilados y Pensionados de La Mendieta. Those interested in registering in the program may enroll until November 12 at the referred center from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

Perico: The workshop shall be held at Parroquia San José, located at Juan Bautista Alberdi 450. Those interested in registering in the program may enroll until November 12 at the referred chapel from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm and from 09:00 am to 2:00 pm at the branch of Banco Macro in Perico.

From 2013 both foundations promote the incorporation of new technologies, computer and ATM literacy for senior citizens in the Province of Jujuy. Workshops have provided training to more than 4,000 individuals.

"At the age of 56 I went from not even knowing how to turn on a computer to reading the newspaper in the Internet every day. It is a great opportunity provided by Fundación Educando and Banco Macro in the Province of Jujuy and a great benefit for senior citizens. I wish to keep on learning", said Timoteo Mamaní, who participated in the latest edition of the program.

The "Computing Education" ("Educando en Informática") project is conducted as a consequence of the excellent results obtained by the "Mobile Classroom" ("Aula Móvil") project conducted in 2013 and the training workshops held at the school Jesús Maestro in 2014.

In this edition, Banco Macro has incorporated a new module on financial education, based on the new portal www.cuentassanas.com.ar, the first personal and family financial education web portal in Argentina that provides an integral education base on personal finance and banking.

Banco Macro promotes this training program in the frame of its corporate responsibility policy. This program intends to foster technology as a tool of development, inclusion and improvement of life quality of individuals and communities in the areas where Banco Macro is present.
