Derwick Associates Funds School Projects

Helping with Social and Welfare projects is a cause close to our hearts here at Derwick Associates. This is why we created the Hermogenes Lopez Foundation, and have helped with many different causes since its creation. The aim of the Foundation is to help with any notable causes such as charities, sports, artists, culture and educational.

The projects that we help with the Foundation are completely comprehensive, and we always get involved in them. Not only do we construct the building blocks of the schools and centres, but we also monitor their progress and make sure that the communities are incorporated into the project. The reason why we do this is so that we know that the projects will continue to grow over time.

The Derwick Associates foundation is non-profit and helps individuals, communities and families across the country with education, sports and job prospects. Our projects include the creation of the Carmen Salles School in Ciudad Bolivar on behalf of CongregaciĆ³n de las Religiosas Concepcionistas de la EnseƱanza. We are so proud of this project because it meant that around 1600 students in the city of Nazareth had access to educational facilities.

We also donated 200 school kits to children in Charallave with the aim of increasing and improving the educational resources available to these families. Those schools which are close to any Derwick Engineering Project are those that we take the biggest interest in.

Another cause helped by the Foundation was the building of a football field, designed to provide recreational and leisure space for families and the community. As well as encouraging being active, we also take part in the Loyola-Tauca project. The main aim of this project is to ensure that all of the culture and traditions of the indigenous people of Puerto Ordaz are protected and preserved.
