We understand that providing value to our social surrounding is a key aspect to promote shared prosperity and thereby contribute to improving the social well-being of the countries where we operate.
That is why we encourage collaboration initiatives among our people through our corporate volunteering program “Deja tu huella Ambar,” both in groups and independently.
In addition, since 2002 we have supported the Fundación Abriendo Camino, with whom we share the vision of education as an essential tool to achieve development and prevent delinquency, and we promote better environmental practices for children and adolescents in vulnerable communities. Since 2020, with the signing of a strategic alliance with this foundation, we have joined efforts to make an environmental education program a reality for the benefit of dozens of families in the communities of Villas Agrícolas and surrounding areas. This alliance supports some of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to address climate change.
Similarly, we support and promote education and road safety based on good habits and responsible driving, as well as promoting innovation in the future of mobility in the country.
In addition, we promote and drive financial education based on the development of comprehensive training in this area, allowing children and young people to develop a culture that enables them to fulfill their potential as individuals.
In Puerto Rico, since 2014, the Motorambar Charity Golf Tournament has been held annually to benefit non-profit entities. In recent years, this initiative has raised and donated more than half a million dollars to non-profit organizations in Puerto Rico.
Fundación Abriendo Camino works in Villas Agrícolas, a marginal sector that is part of Santo Domingo’s poverty belt. The foundation organizes educational and cultural activities aimed at the integral development of children and adolescents such as literacy, up to grade level classes, artistic and civic values education, computer science and environmental education. The foundation is also a collaborating center of the Institute of Professional Technical Training (INFOTEP) and offers courses in electronics, computer science and accounting to facilitate the insertion of young people and adults in the labor market.
Most recently, at the beginning of 2020, Grupo Ambar signed a strategic alliance with Fundación Abriendo Camino to support an environmental education program, to raise awareness and educate children and adolescents about the importance of caring for the environment and so sustainable practices become a way of life.
