In the framework of the XI International Forum of RedEAmérica held in Brazil, the winning experiences and finalists of the Transformers Prize were announced, resulting in the PECUARITY ENTREPRENEURS PROGRAM highlighted by its contribution to the development of communities.
This award seeks to recognize, in Latin America and the Caribbean, the inspiring initiatives in which companies, foundations and institutes work together with communities to build more sustainable and equitable environments.
The fourth edition of the Prize received more than 92 applications from 13 countries in the region. For the first time, the Prize was opened to companies and foundations not members of RedEAmérica, and Vicente Lucci Foundation was invited to participate in the category “Sustainable Business and Communities”, with the program “Regional Livestock Entrepreneur”.

Our Program is intended for the training of producers in Northern Argentina, as well as for the sustainable development of agricultural and livestock production in the region, in order to provide their own support at an economic level, through the formation of a profitable, propitious activity also for the local economy. Together with 12 public and private institutions, this proposal seeks to develop genuine employment in rural communities, avoiding the migration of families to cities, due to labor shortages.
Fundación Vicente Lucci generates social capital through the implementation of training programs and strategic institutional alliances that contribute to the sustainable and equitable development of rural communities.
More than 70% of the fellows graduated from the Integration Scholarships program of the French Bank and Lucci Foundation, continued their studies and / or are working.
