Private social investment is the voluntary transfer of private resources in a planned, monitored and systematic way for social, environmental, cultural and scientific projects of public interest. Included in the universe of private social investment are the social actions performed by companies, foundations and institutes of business origin or instituted by families, communities or individuals.
In this context, the Odebrecht Foundation, a private, non-profit institution, is set up as a Third Sector organization that promotes public services aimed at the common good, whose work is centered on the search for a more equal, responsible and harmonic society.
In 2003, enhancing its contribution and the social work carried out for decades, the Foundation idealized and created the Development and Integrated Growth Program with Sustainability (PDCIS). Focused on the population of the Southern Bahia Lowlands and inspired by the Odebrecht Entrepreneurial Technology (TEO), the initiative has as a priority the training process of young people and the creation of opportunities for them and their families to live in the countryside with access to public policies, inclusion social, education, decent work and income, conserved environment and quality of life.
