JJC Volunteer Program “Manos a la obra” (“hands on”) benefits about 5 thousand people
The Company identifies the main needs in places where it operates in order to launch its contribution to the community.
Through its Manos a la Obra corporate volunteer program (which roughly translates into English as "Hands On") JJC implements an important part of its plan of social responsibility and outreach. In that sense, the employees who make up the program get organized, and identify and propose actions to help the most vulnerable areas.
With the support of 247 volunteers, during year 2015 the company benefited 4717 poor people in Arequipa, Ancash, Apurimac, Huancavelica, Ilo, Piura, Callao, Ventanilla and Villa El Salvador. These are some of the main actions: donation of clothes, food and school supplies; medical campaigns; implementation of schools and shelters; training workshops, and other activities addressing the specific needs of the area.
JJC's "Hands On" volunteer program fulfills the objectives of strengthening the link between the company and the community, cultivating a sense of cooperation among workers and identifying and developing educational and cultural activities for the benefit of the most vulnerable groups, contributing to bringing progress and prosperity to places where the company operates, as stated in its corporate mission.
