In order to support the development of the communities where it operates, AMAGGI created the André and Lucia Maggi Foundation, a non-economic institution dedicated to the strategic management of the company's private social investment.
Guided by the André and Lucia Maggi Foundation Private Social Investment Policy, all forms of AMAGGI social activities follow some guidelines, the first being the alignment of the initiative with its Mission, Vision and Values, and an always transparent communication on social investment practices in the community.
Another one is the stakeholders´ engagement in the identification of priorities, in the planning, implementation and evaluation of practices, through consultation and dialogue with representatives of society organizations, as well as the possible spontaneous engagement of AMAGGI employees. The Foundation considers of great importance to stimulate and guide partners to improve their actions, always respecting the AMAGGI family's desire to value people´s capacity.
The André and Lucia Maggi Foundation Private and Social Investment Policy underwent a review in 2013 and 2014, better orienting the focus of application of the projects in the communities, with the involvement of several actors and partnerships.
André and Lucia Maggi Foundation private social investment focus
In order to organize its actions with the communities, the Foundation relies on three axes: development of people, development with communities and mobilization of partnerships. The latter has a transversal influence in all the projects of the Foundation.
This axe is dedicated to projects for development with communities, through premises such as listening and dialogue, seeking to identify and know challenges and opportunities for the development of actions, such as the Casa Maggica Project in Rondonópolis and the Centro Cultural Velha Serpa in Itacoatiara. As part of its expansion plan, the Foundation included the Casa Maggica Project in Cuiabá and the development of the Mundo Maggico Project, which will seek to replicate Casa Maggica's methodology with institutional partners.
This axe is addicted to projects dedicated to development with communities, through premises such as listening and dialogue, seeking to identify and know challenges and opportunities for the development of actions; the identification of partners in order to create a collaborative local agenda of discussions and actions to transform the local reality; and the strengthening of local networks, providing qualification and technical training for local organizations, as well as opening bids for financial support.
In this area the Foundation seeks to mobilize partners - AMAGGI value chain companies, universities and international clients - for a qualified community social investment. Thus it is possible to create new social technologies, to increase the number of projects developed and to maximize their results.
The project aims to contribute to citizen education, working after/before school, through art-education. The action reached 240 children and adolescents from 27 public schools in the municipality of Rondonópolis, located in neighborhoods with social vulnerability from medium to high, and with low scores in the Basic Education Development Index (Ideb). According to the calculation of the social return on investment, each R$1 invested in the Casa Maggica Project generated R$3.22 in social value - that is, three times more than the amount invested.
In addition to the actions carried out by the Foundation, AMAGGI also supports local community development initiatives. In 2016 the Itacoatiara unit supported a series of social actions, offering materials and equipment to schools, entities and events, as well as donations and training. Total investment in these projects was R$68,755.79.
Last year, AMAGGI Energy has led to improvements in the accesses of the small hydroelectric plants Segredo and Ilha Comprida, maintaining the access roads. A renovation was also carried out on the bridge linking Segredo and Ilha Comprida, used by rural producers and the population in general. The total investment was R$105 thousand. EC7
