Social Development

The fundamental pillar of the Foundation’s activity

Social development is the fundamental pillar of the Foundation’s activity and its main strategic objective.

The Foundation, mindful of its corporate matrix and as a privileged vehicle for the exercise of the Mota-Engil Group’s social responsibility policy, focuses its attention on the major social issues that contemporary societies are facing, seeking to contribute to the social development of national communities and international where Mota-Engil operates.

Strategic social investment in the community privileges action in favor of vulnerable and most disadvantaged social groups.

Through support in the areas of social solidarity, disability, health, housing, sports, among others, the Foundation aims to contribute to the strengthening and sustainability of the social economy sector, supporting initiatives and projects of recognized relevance and social impact.

The Foundation also places particular emphasis on networking and partnerships with other institutions. This methodological approach is crucial to provide a more efficient response to the problems, through the articulation and concertation of efforts in a logic of complementarity and strategically oriented to intervene in areas where the public or private sector has greater coverage difficulties.
