Environmental responsibility
Each member of our Terra family knows the importance of the commitment we have to the environment, which is reflected in the voluntary participation in " A Day For ", where we managed to plant 5,225 trees in Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Costa Rica – an effort with our employees carried out annually with the aim of contributing our grain of sand with environmental conservation.

Commitment to education
In addition to this, celebrating 40 years as a corporation, our social arm Terra Foundation arrived to two decades from its creation.

In the framework of its anniversary, the 3rd edition of Magisterial Conferences was held at a regional level, with the participation of the renowned international writer Elsa Punset, with the aim of providing more than 900 teachers and authorities that participate in the educational programs, experiences and practices that contribute to their professional life as well as that of their students.

The strategic alliances were a key element this year to complete great achievements in education.

Terra Foundation in conjunction with “Teach a Man to Fish” executed the program of “entrepreneurial schools” creating 46 school microenterprises with the participation of 1,300 students participating in “Tutoring Scholarships”.

We ended a year, grateful to each collaborator who made it possible to reach these achievements, we are proud to have a valuable team that every month showed passion and interest in all their work.

We are motivated to start a new year. We have the goal to continue innovating and above all contributing to the development of the region.

We will continue creating better opportunities for our people through new business ideas, training to grow small and medium enterprises, we will strive to make more volunteer hours doing activities that impact the environment positively.

We know that with effort and excellence we will achieve new goals in 2019 always seeking the welfare of our countries.
