Colombia. The Orbis Group and Pintuco presented a complete balance on the volunteer program they develop in different regions of that country.

The program has contributed to improving the quality of life of hundreds of people through transformation processes. Through painting and accompanying school projects, the collaborators of Pintuco and the other companies of Grupo Orbis (Andercol, Mundial and O-tek) make valuable social contributions such as the transfer of scientific or technical knowledge, mentoring to start-up companies and donating time for the orientation of other community processes through their Corporate Volunteering program that was created in 2010.

The company explained that so far in 2019, in Bogotá, Cali, Cartagena, Medellín and other municipalities of Antioquia, around 500 volunteers, including collaborators and people from other institutions that are part of the interest groups of Grupo Orbis and Pintuco, have allocated more than 110 hours of service, equivalent to $ 9,108,000 man labor hours, time in which they advanced 11 days of painting. In addition, the donation in paint made for the volunteers has been 1,657 gallons.

"To highlight we have that our corporate volunteering model has served as a reference to various companies that initiate this search such as Smurfit Kappa, Haceb, Corporación Prosur, Corporación Proaburrá Norte, Alcaldía de Rionegro, among others"explained Miguel Ayala Director of the Pintuco Foundation, an entity that coordinates all the volunteer work of Pintuco and the other companies of the Orbis Group. "In addition, corporate volunteering generates a positive impact among employees who increasingly join the different days."

Last Thursday, August 29, 14 collaborators of these companies were part of the volunteer "Vamos Colombia" led by the ANDI Foundation that took place in the municipality of Apartadó in Antioquia, the volunteers developed tasks of beautification of community spaces through the painting and planting of gardens, support in productive projects and work in orchards and reforestation.

"This is an initiative that motivates me since in a certain way we can contribute to the improvement of the region and support certain people who need it, it is gratifying not only to paint or do another type of work, but to know the community and its stories, volunteering is a passion for me" says Yolima Berdugo, Administrative Coordinator of Mundial, who for 6 years has participated in the volunteering carried out by the Orbis Group.

Sebastián Puerta, Transport Analyst at Pintuco, and who has been a volunteer for nearly nine years, points out "Volunteering is the opportunity to share with people who have lived experiences different from mine, to know other realities. In addition, it makes me happy to be able to make people happy, it is my way of thanking what I have, my home, my health, my possibilities, it is the opportunity to give back to the world, to God, to others to Nature, everything they give me"

On December 5, 2017, within the framework of the awards of the "Heroes Like You" awards, Pintuco was recognized by the Mayor's Office of Medellín as one of the three companies in the city that carry out activities related to exercise or the promotion of social volunteering.
