The Chile Country Program is focused on:
- Harnessing the potential of young people through education
- Enhancing the capability of organisations and groups to participate in decision making
- Enhancing the resilience of communities to respond to environmental change
All of these challenges are complex and cannot be solved by a single organisation. The Foundation works in a spirit of genuine partnership with like-minded civil society organisations and international institutions to align aspirations behind a common goal and make the best use of collective expertise.
In selecting projects for investment, the BHP Billiton Foundation follows a research-driven and consultative process that draws upon the expertise of individuals and organisations to identify specific issues to be addressed.
The Foundation is committed to robust governance and aims to set an example in purposeful transparency by reporting openly on progress in each of its projects.
