The Sacyr Foundation supports Fundación Juan XXIII in new cooking school endeavor

  • This project will develop a new training and professional integration center for youths at risk of psychological and social vulnerability.

Manuel Manrique, Chairman of Sacyr and the Sacyr Foundation, and Javier Arroyo, Director of Fundación Juan XXIII, have signed an agreement by which the first agrees to aid the latter in the construction of its new cooking school and a catering and ready-to-eat food center.

The Fundación Juan XXIII is currently developing a large-scale training and employment center. The Sacyr Foundation will collaborate with a donation of part of the funds to build the kitchens. 

The Sacyr Foundation and Fundación Juan XXIII have a long-standing partnership, and back in 2019 it already participated with the expansion and adaptation of the kitchens in its professional training center, responsible for elaborating catering products.

Fundación Juan XXIII will integrate a new official training center, student lodgings and an inclusive job creation program for young people with disabilities, at risk of social exclusion or psychological or social vulnerability into a 14,000 sq m campus.

To Javier Arroyo, “we have a long-standing history of collaboration with Sacyr, and this alliance with the Sacyr Foundation gives us the opportunity to undertake large-scale projects like this and kick-start the construction of our new professional training center”. 

Manuel Manrique said, “this agreement builds into the continued support the Sacyr Foundation has given to multiple Juan XXIII initiatives over the past years”. “We share the view that opportunities and spaces for social and employment integration must be created for people in situations of psychological and social vulnerability”, Manrique added.
