What is Bonaterra Community?

It is a space that reflects the spirit of service and social commitment of the Universidad Panamericana Campus Aguascalientes. Bonaterra Community is a social project of community development that seeks to make Aguascalientes a responsible and supportive place, through the improvement of the social fabric of vulnerable areas, making the population the promoter of their own change and development.

The Bonaterra Community project was born from researching and analysing the different social problems and needs in different areas of Aguascalientes, seeking to create a replicable social model that promotes the integral development of people and turns them into agents of change.

The main problems and social needs that are addressed through our programmes and projects are: dropout and educational backwardness, vandalism, drug addiction, domestic violence, lack of educational and employment opportunities, among others. The population that is directly served is located in the eastern area of the city of Aguascalientes; among the different neighbourhoods are: Miradores de las Culturas, La Hojarasca, Laurales, Cumbres I, II and III, Pericos, Villas de las Fuentes, Solidaridad I and II, and Bajío de Las Palmas.

Bonaterra Community is a comprehensive project based on social action that, through social justice, aims to promote the well-being and prosperity of families in Aguascalientes, especially in the eastern area, to ensure the reduction of social inequalities and a comprehensive human and dignified development.

Some of the objectives of Comunidad Bonaterra:

  • Promote the full integral development of the families of Aguascalientes, in their different dimensions, with dignity.
  • Create a replicable social intervention model to reduce poverty and social inequalities.
  • Promote that all people can exercise their rights, under a healthy social coexistence.
  • Promote inclusive, equitable and quality education for a well-rounded education that ensures greater opportunities for growth.
  • The homes of Aguascalientes families should be decent places that are livable, safe and accessible.
  • Ensuring quality of life through health and health care services.
  • Encourage decent work that allows people to develop and grow in their social environment. Promote access to job opportunities with fair economic retribution.
  • Having access to affordable legal justice
  • Among others

During the last period of work (January-December 2021) we obtained the following results:

  • A total of 16 training programmes were provided, which promote comprehensive education for children and young people.
  • Total participation of 25 volunteers.

Coming soon:

Such as a psycho-pedagogical office, legal office, tax, accounting and business consulting, advice for the construction of a decent home, among others. Starts in February 2022.
