La Fundación Carvajal
Is a non - profit organization aimed at promoting improving the quality of life of the communities most in need in Cali and the rural area of Valle del Cauca, Colombia.

What inspires us
"It is not possible for a healthy company to exist in an ill social environment because sooner or later the ailments in the environment will have repercussions on its performance. That is why, a responsible entrepreneur must necessarily be commited to solving the social problems"
Manuel Carvajal Sinisterra, 1960.
