When we speak of Strengthening our Foundation as a company, this extends to the communities where we operate in Peru. We created the Step by Step Foundation with the mission of promoting and protecting the children's rights through specialized programs and projects to contribute to an improved quality of life for those who live in conditions of poverty and extreme poverty. The Foundation is especially geared to children and adolescents in situations of social risk, all in an environment that promotes health, education, nourishment, human rights and culture. Through its commitment to the local children enrolled in the Wawa Wasi program, we have helped create a safer and healthier environment for many children in the region, for which the Government of Peru has provided us special recognition.
