We work focused on community development in the locations where our associates (Galvani Indústria, Comércio e Serviços SA e Galvani Participações e Investimentos) operate. And for us, community development begins with a sense of belonging to a particular group and the belief in their latent potential. With that in mind, the community begins to act collaboratively, recognizing their own resources as a leverage for their social and economic progress and articulating various stakeholders to strengthen collaboration among the people.
This process is always unique, which means it varies from community to community. There is no ready-to-use formula and its success is measured by the development of human capital, capital increase, as well as the authenticity and sustainability of the communities’ responses. The population ceases to act passively, becoming jointly responsible for local social issues and starting to believe in its own power to change things.
Throughout our history we learned a lot. Based on this knowledge, we designed a model that guides the development and implementation of our projects.
