  • To improve communication, sound equipment has been delivered, as well as signs for evacuation routes and meeting points.
  • Construction of shelters in areas devastated by the passage of hurricanes
  • Literacy Program: Out of the total personnel hired in the project there is an important sector of local labor, where a lower educational level has been detected, which is why an approach has been made with the State Institute for Adult Education ( IEEA) and with the National Council for Education for Life and Work (CONEVyT), to establish a collaboration agreement to increase the productivity and competitiveness of their workers by providing them with basic education, support them in completing secondary education, promote and facilitate enrollment in technical courses or diplomas.
To follow up on literacy activities, a recruitment campaign was carried out with workers to find out their educational level.


  • The Governor of the State of Puebla, Mario Marín Torres, granted in recognition as a company committed to the education of its workers issued by CONEVyT, for the education activities for adults carried out in the construction of the Nuevo Necaxa Tihuatlán Highway.
