SUPPORTING MOUNTAIN COMMUNITIES WITH AN EMPLOYABILITY & DIVERSITY PROGRAM

Chandon Argentina and Terrazas wineries and vineyards are located in the heart of the Andean mountains in Argentina

Chandon Argentina and Terrazas wineries and vineyards are located in the heart of the Andean mountains in Argentina, where there is a lack of both educational resources in remote rural schools and training to foster labor insertion. There is also a shortage of primary services such as running water, sewerage, paved roads and internet connectivity.

The Maison is striving to support the development of mountain families both directly through dedicated programs and indirectly with financial contributions to local consortiums, foundations and NGOs.

Today 5 educational programs (based on environmental awareness, initiation to art and internet use), hosting 4,000 children a year, are operational in 22 local schools located in the mountains near the wineries and vineyards. 3 adult employability and diversity programs (field and soft skills training, opportunities for disabled and vulnerable people) welcome around 500 adults.
