The Morgan & Morgan Group’s (MMG) corporate volunteering program “Luces de Esperanza” was established on April 1, 2003, as part of the firm’s activities in support of the UNDP-Global Compact projects and to cooperate with the Eduardo Morgan Foundation’s (see below) commitments in respect of the Global Compact initiative.
“Luces de Esperanza” is comprised by more than 60 individuals who provide assistance in different areas of responsibility for specific activities and projects assigned by the program’s Volunteering Committee. These areas of responsibility include organization, logistics, entertainment, donations, and health.
Through its volunteering program MMG supports activities designed to deliver social assistance and, at the same time, the means whereby needy individuals are accorded opportunities in education, self-sustainability skills and personal improvement. The means to promote these goals include the program’s support for self-sustaining farms and the training of community members in different skills.
MMG promotes education programs and self-support practices to achieve enduring benefits in targeted communities and to encourage similar developments in other communities.
The UNDP initiative to foster the establishment of corporate volunteering has proved successful. Indeed, it is the goal of the MMG Corporate Volunteering program to consolidate the practice of corporate volunteering in Panama for the benefit of our communities and the country.
