The businessman was also in charge of giving the town’s Festivities Proclamation.

Last weekend, Francisco Martínez Cosentino, was named with the title of “adopted son” of the municipality of Tíjola. The regional businessman was also in charge of delivering the opening speech at the beginning of the town’s festivities.

The head of the multinational based in Cantoria, said that “in Cosentino we want young people to feel that they have a future here; but that the future must be earned with effort and perseverance; in short, with good training and education. This is why, years ago, my brothers and I decided to create the Eduarda Justo Foundation in honour and memory of our mother. Our aim was to promote education as a lever for progress and improvement in the people of our land. With this foundation we have helped to give scholarships to dozens of young people from all over Almería, many of them from villages in the Almanzora region, to study for their baccalaureate in schools in the United World; or to take postgraduate courses in the most important business schools in the United States or Europe. In addition, we hold a seminar every year called leaders of the future, which has already been attended by 3,400 young people, where we bring them examples of successful entrepreneurship in all areas of life, business, social, sports, volunteering, and so on”.

“You can’t imagine the satisfaction we get from reading the comments left by the young people who attend this seminar every year, where we also invite young people who are studying abroad with our scholarships to share their example. What they tell us is thank you for helping us to find a purpose in our lives, to know what we want to be, thanks to the example we have found in the people we have been able to meet,” said Paco Cosentino.

“Education is the main lever for improvement and progress in people’s lives. And today, we have come to the conclusion that dual vocational training is the best way to land. The learning that young people need in order to have job opportunities that match the needs of new occupations to be filled by companies. Years ago we realised that we could not leave this task to the public administration alone, and that we had to take a step forward by creating the material means for the VET modules to be taught in our production facilities, in what is known as Dual VET, in such a way that the practical part of this training cycle is taught within the company. We already have several promotions of higher degrees in subjects such as mechatronics, robotics and other disciplines that give students a high chance of being hired upon completion of their studies”.

I can tell you,” he continued, “that in the last two years young people from Linares, Huelva and some towns in Granada have been coming to study these modules, although the majority of the students enrolled are from our region. Working for a better education, strengthening the learning of subjects that today are essential to maintain our production facilities, which have state-of-the-art technology in their sector, is an absolute priority for me”.

The businessman highlighted the opportunities offered by the region and the need to work together.
He also stressed, “I am obsessed with the idea that this region has a great future because its people are very hard-working. We have many small towns in terms of population, but great possibilities if we help each other, if we strengthen the feeling of a county and generate the services that give us the quality of life that our neighbours need and demand to want to continue living here: in education, in health, in culture, in communications. That is why, today that I have the opportunity to address this municipal corporation of Tijola, from the gratitude I feel for the title you have granted me, I say to you that the children of Tijola hope that you will work to make a more united and collaborative region so that we can achieve the challenges of being a land of present and future, so that we do not have to leave the villages to go and look for life opportunities in other geographies”.
