On 25TH April, Social Prosperity sealed two major alliances with the Smurfit Kappa Colombia Foundation and the Carvajal Foundation, in order to carry out actions that build on the work being carried out by the National Government with a view to reducing poverty in the municipalities of Cali , Buenaventura, Bolívar and Yumbo in Valle, and El Tambo and Cajibío in Cauca.
The partnership with the Smurfit Kappa Foundation is benefiting about 1,700 people in the lines of intervention in education, income generation and grassroots development, healthy housing, environmental management and active citizenship.
Previously, a diagnosis was made about the incidence of the Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI), which is above the departmental average. In Valle, the IPM stands at 38.78% and in Cauca at 70.59%, indicators that they seek to reduce via this immediate intervention.
The two alliances were formalized by the organizations in an event in which were present the director of the Smurfit Kappa Foundation, Beatriz Mejia, the Director of the Carvajal Foundation, Maria del Rosario Carvajal and the Director of Management and Articulation of Social Prosperity, Juan Felipe Rodríguez.
“”With these partnerships for social responsibility, we continue to join forces with companies in the real sector in order to supplement the work developed by the National Government to reduce poverty levels of the vulnerable population” explained the Director of Management and Articulation of the Social Offer, Juan Felipe Rodriguez
