The “Social Infrastructure” program is a development cooperation program with the goal, since its launch in the year 2008, of improving and expanding access to potable water and basic sanitation among groups at risk of social vulnerability in Africa and Latin America.
Social project in El Salado, Colombia.
To date, 31 projects have been carried out in 9 countries, in collaboration with 15 NGOs and their local counterparts and public institutions in the region where the intervention takes place. The total for these projects comes to over 6 million euros invested, 238,869 individuals directly benefitted and 121 company employees volunteering in the program.
Every year we hold an invitation to tender in which Spanish not-for-profit organizations may submit their proposals. Based on technical criteria, we select projects that will intervene in vulnerable communities, in both rural and urban settings, and that seek to alleviate a situation of weakness or lack of infrastructure dedicated to supplying potable water and basic sanitation.
We participate not only by contributing funds, but we are also involved in the follow-up and management of projects. We provide technical assistance and we participate in the project by means of employees specializing in the specific area of intervention. We are more than mere donors.
With work visits made to the site, as part of the company’s corporate volunteer plan, our employees contribute their knowledge and professional experience based on previously identified needs. In this way, we put our professionals in service of international cooperation.
