Brazilian denim fabric maker Vicunha Textil said it works for social and economic growth of the communities where it is present, with social responsibility being the topmost agenda.

The company sponsors projects in education, motivation, life quality and social inclusion, an example of which is the Pescar project which provides personal and professional development to low income teenagers.

“The project was created with the objective of helping youths in a situation of social vulnerability to obtain an education not only to secure the skills to work but also in social skills, citizenship, health, personal growth and motivation,” the company said.

Another is the Vicunha Responsible Inclusion (VIR) program, which ensures social inclusion of disabled people.

“The program creates working conditions and acts against discrimination, by adding more dignity in the workplace for its employees with disabilities. The high number of disabled people in the workforce reflects the engagement,” it observed.

Thomas Dislich, managing director Vicunha Textil for Europe and Asia said, “Based on social responsibility principles, we deliver ethical and transparent relations that are beyond business management.”

“This contributes to the creation of solid foundations supporting the growth of its employees, clients, partners, suppliers, government and society,” he added. (AR)
