Because many of Chevron's operations are located in the developing world, we take special steps to form partnerships to help improve the overall quality of life and health of people in our local communities. In South Africa, for example, we have long been involved in the Ikhwezi Community Centre near our Cape Town operations. The facility operates a day-care center and teaches income-generating crafts and other skills to women, many of whose families are affected by HIV/AIDS. In 2008 Chevron committed $30 million to The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and was named its first Corporate Champion. Chevron has been recognized by a number of international organizations for its health and community engagement programs.
