Decidiendo para un Futuro Mejor

Tackling information asymmetries to promote schooling trajectories in Latin America

Reduce information biases.  Promote educational continuity and access to higher education.

Our experience with
promoting educational trajectories

DFM arises as a response to the increase in school dropouts 
due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the high costs of 
in-person vocational counseling interventions.

Decidiendo Para un Futuro Mejor is an educational program and a digital vocational counselor for 6 to 12 grade students that promotes educational trajectories and access to higher education.

DFM has been highlighted by the World Bank as a Great Buy to reduce school dropouts in 2020 and 2023.

DFM assists students in understanding the importance of education by delivering valuable information about its benefits. Students can easily explore different higher education programs and institutions, as well as their financing options.

We guide students in preparing a study plan for their transition to higher education. Additionally, we help educators provide guidance to students so they can make the most out of the tool. The program is digital, flexible, and personalized, adapting to each student's particular needs and the national curriculum of the guidance subject.
