Who we are
Founded in 1986, Carlos Slim Foundation has benefited millions of people through high-impact programs focused on the most vulnerable population in Latin America.
With a high sense of social responsibility, efficiency and opportunity, Carlos Slim Foundation develops programs in many different fields like education, employment, health, nutrition, social justice, culture, human development, support in natural disasters, economic development, protection and conservation of the environment; which contribute to improve the quality of life of people of all ages, promote the formation of human resources and create opportunities that foster the integral development of individuals and their communities.
Our approach to solving social inequialities is the same as in business. First, identifying and finding solutions. Second, providing the necessary resources to solve the problem. This approach is different from first providing the resources and then defining how to use them.
Modern society is based on the welfare of others and therefore the best investment is to fight poverty.
Many social problems are handled more effectively when foundations are supported by the infrastructure that companies can provide.
