Investing in Communities
Wherever we are, we strive to be a good neighbor, sharing the concerns of our communities and working to create a better future. Visit the countries where Chevron operates and you'll see schoolchildren in Angola excited about a science project, an entrepreneur in Kazakhstan starting a new business with the help of microfinancing and HIV-infected mothers giving birth to healthy babies. We demonstrate what a company can do to make a difference.
In partnership with governments, nonprofit organizations, and aid agencies, Chevron has invested in initiatives that help strengthen and improve the communities where we work. These investments are focused on three areas:
- Economic Development – We invest in microfinance programs and small business incubators that create jobs, promote self-sufficiency and lead to a higher standard of living.
- Health – Healthy people create healthy communities. So we improve access to medical care and treatment and help strengthen public health systems. We also work closely with non-governmental organizations to support HIV/AIDS awareness, prevention, testing and treatment programs in Africa and Asia.
- Education – To help ensure communities can thrive in the 21st century economy, we promote education—especially in science, technology, engineering and math—as well as career and vocational training.
