The Integrate to Include (IPI) association promotes the link between teachers from the Nuestra Señora de Lourdes school, in Concordia, and teachers and students from the National University of Entre Ríos (UNER).

IPI is a non-profit civil association that carries out a socio-educational management project in Concordia “seeking the dignity of minors and young people from families in vulnerable situations.” With this objective, IPI promotes, organizes and encourages activities for minors who attend the different levels of education at the Private School No. 27 “Our Lady of Lourdes”, the majority of whom come from vulnerable families in the Gruta de Lourdes neighborhoods. , Ex Aeroclub, Almirante Brown and Carretera La Cruz, all in the southern area of ​​the city of Concordia.

As part of a university extension project that began to be developed in March 2024 and will last until March of next year, ten students and two teachers from the Faculty of Administration Sciences carried out a survey of the computer equipment of the aforementioned educational establishment.

“Warned by IPI members about the need for the Lourdes educational community to have adequate computer tools to improve teaching processes, Professor Juan Carlos Teze promoted the project at UNER in which IPI and the Lourdes school are institutions. partners and that in this first stage it will provide support to primary school, leaving open the possibility of expanding the initiative or designing a new one to provide similar assistance at the secondary level,” reported from the University.

“The Lourdes school has about thirty tablets and fifteen notebooks, obtained through donation programs from private sectors and most of them are currently in good condition,” they later specified.


Among the initiatives of the UNER team, they highlighted the installation of “applications and/or platforms that strengthen the teaching and practice of reading comprehension. Aspects such as memory, games aimed at exercising the attention of the little ones and, for the older ones, the interpretation of instructions will be worked on. Workshops will also be held to train teachers in the use of new tools.”

“Our objective is to reinforce the children’s learning and offer support to what primary school teachers are doing,” said Teze, who highlighted that the group of volunteers is interdisciplinary and is made up of students and teachers from the Bachelor of Systems and Technology courses. University in Web Development.

Noelia Sánchez, primary director of the Lourdes school, commented that “this type of offer of help is not common” and recalled that the Government’s ICT access programs, which distribute tablets and offer training to teachers, do not reach the privately managed educational institutions. Hence they especially appreciate and appreciate this initiative. “They come to provide tools to what teachers work on in the classroom. For us it is great, because we know that our students do not have access to much help and that everything that is offered to them for their future is received here, at school,” she mentioned.


The administration of Mayor Francisco Azcué has, among its priorities, the idea of ​​closely dealing with the “stigma” of the city, identified according to Indec statistics as one of the poorest in the country.

Concordia presented, during the last week, the “Relevar” program. From the Municipality they visit the neighborhoods and census the neighbors, obtaining data on the standard of living, contact with health centers, educational level and housing.

In this regard, the Secretary of Human Development of Concordia, Sebastián Arístide, told Mirador Entre Ríos: “We do the work in the popular neighborhoods. We surveyed 14 neighborhoods, working in the morning and afternoon. In addition to that, we carry out approaches in the neighborhoods with interdisciplinary teams that are responsible for addressing the needs of people with the most immediate urgent attention.”

“We obtain data every week and put it in a database that the Conin foundation processes, which is sent to different areas of the municipality. We notice that we have a very high percentage of school dropouts in primary and secondary school. It’s shocking to get the results and to have so many names of kids who don’t go to school, that really challenges us. In addition, we found, unfortunately, 60 people who never set foot in a school. “These are illiterate people, people who are not involved in education, that condemns us as a city to continue being linked to negative statistics,” she explained when referring to the situation regarding education.

With the program, in addition to knowing the situations that the popular neighborhoods are going through, in which the needs are the order of the day, they seek to generate spaces like the one that IPI carries out in the southern zone so that the reality of these “condemned” people to repeat history” change and lead to generating a virtuous circle that allows us to free ourselves from the “stigma” of poverty.
