AQ Video: Holistic Community Development in Central Brazil with Bunge Foundation

January 24, 2012

by AQ Inclusion

In the Brazilian state of Tocantins, learn about how Bunge Foundation—through a program called Integrated Community—is spurring sustainable territorial development both socially and economically. Currently, the program exists in three cities in Tocantins: Pedro Afonso, Tupirama and Bom Jesus do Tocantins.

Bunge Foundation undertakes a three-pronged approach:

1)    Forging relationships with the community, which then promotes awareness of the Bunge enterprise in the region and also helps the enterprise become part of the community.
2)    Strengthening public institutions such as municipal councils and tax and budgetary authorities, in order to develop sustainable infrastructure. 
3)    Lending support for human and social development, which strives to promote community development through occupational training and development of suppliers, among other actions.

Learn more about Integrated Community on Fundação Bunge's official website.
