Peruvian project Corazones Solidarios wins the Green Awards 2022
Fundación Oli, through its social program, Corazones Solidarios, was awarded in the most recent edition of the Green Awards, the most important sustainability festival in Ibero-America. The event was held at the Arsh Center in the city of Miami, and more than 5,000 projects from countries such as Peru, Ecuador, Chile, Colombia, Venezuela, Argentina, among others, applied.
In this sense, around 500 social and environmental enterprises from Ibero-America were recognized in the 8 award categories aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Among them, Fundación Oli, obtained first place in the Human Development – Equality category, thanks to the Corazones Solidarios program, which seeks to empower parents in need, whose children undergo medical treatment.
For Diana Crousillat, Executive Director of the Oli Foundation, this recognition is a significant example of the constant work in favor of equal opportunities. “We continue adding efforts for this 2022. For example, we have closed the school campaign, with the delivery of 2,000 radio receivers in Loreto. In addition, we are working on the winter campaign, where we will shelter around 10,000 residents of the high Andean regions, “she said.
Since 2015, the recently awarded project has been addressing three widespread problems in the country: low family income, mental health problems, and the large amount of waste left by the textile industry. In this way, the program promotes the economic inclusion of fathers and mothers who do not have the availability to work in a traditional job, which contributes to their family economy.
Thanks to these characteristics, Corazones Solidarios met the sustainability and innovation requirements listed by the Green Awards in the Human Development category. For this reason, after an exhaustive evaluation by an international jury, they were chosen as the winners in the Equality subcategory. “It is the first time that we have participated, and this motivates us to continue undertaking new challenges”, concludes Crousillat.
