One of the actions carried out as part of Hexacta’s 2012 Corporate Social Responsibility plan was the donation and construction of a house for the “Un Techo para mi País” program. This NPO (nonprofit organization) is strongly committed to assist low-income settlements in Latin America and the Caribbean to overcome poverty by providing them with emergency housing and support in different matters. Hexacta collaborates with this program since 2010.
This year the construction took place in La Chechela, Escobar, in the suburbs of Buenos Aires. The beneficiary was a family of 8 members, 3 daughters, 3 sons, and their parents.
Luis Broeders, head of Hexacta´s Corporate Social Responsibility program, shared some words about his experience: “I had mixed feelings about this experience: on one side I felt sadness when seeing how many children grow up in such living conditions. On the other side, I was proud and satisfied about having contributed with this family. This not only has to do with building the house itself, which even though is better than the one they had before, it’s still very precarious, but also with working with the family to show that hard work and effort can change things. This house is just thebeginning of the assistance “Un Techo para mi País” provides and Hexacta is proud of being part of this.”
