We have worked in collaboration with the local municipality of Til Til in Chile to support a series of improvements at educational facilities benefiting more than 1,900 students and 110 teachers.
We have financed improvements to the infrastructures at the Santa Matilde School, the C-82 Polyvalent Secondary School and the Huertos Familiares Secondary School.
Across these establishments, eight classrooms have been refurbished and provided with new equipment, and electrical systems have been remodelled.
"At Anglo American, we are proud of the work that we have carried out in Til Til over the years. We have been fortunate enough to help improve educational facilities there and also contribute to a better future for the community," said Ursula Weber, our social development and communities manager in the region.
In Til Til, we have also worked in our partnership to implement a university preparation programme to help young people gain admission to higher education. Since the partnership was established, the number of admissions to universities has almost doubled, a true testament to the impact that is being made.
We have also worked in partnership with Fundación Integra, to revamp local nursery Jardín Infantil Mi Huertito Travieso.
