PPC LAUNCHES AN EDUCATIONAL PROJECT FOR THE CHILDREN OF ITS EMPLOYEES
Hutchison Ports PPC presents: “Aventuras para Ti” an educational project that seeks through cartoons to communicate in a simple and fun way to the children of our employees the work that their parents do every day at our terminals in Balboa and Cristóbal and the importance and responsibility that each one has in contributing to the progress of the country.
Our first capsule, “Safe and Essential Work” seeks that our employees have the tools that help them teach their children, family and friends in a simple way the importance of the work they do and the measures that are being taken to protect them and keep them safe and healthy, at the same time guaranteeing an efficient and safe operation of cargo transportation during the current situation in Panama and the world.
With this project, PPC wants to transmit its acquired values, sharing in an educational, cultural and social way new concepts related to the industry, by means of simple language and didactic messages for the reader.

Panama Ports Company supports projects focused on the empowerment of women.
Gender violence and inequality is a very real issue
The lack of empowerment of women constitutes a form of critical inequality and while there are multiple barriers to women’s empowerment, violence against women and girls is both a cause and a consequence of gender inequality.
Aware of the role that as companies we must have in training, empowerment, leadership and in the generation of equal opportunities for women, Panama Ports Company, S.A. has been supporting projects focused on the empowerment of women through organizations such as “Fundación Mujeres en Positivo” that facilitate education and training programs to help women start small businesses through micro-financing.
Gender equality, in addition to being a fundamental human right, is essential to achieve peaceful societies, with full human potential and sustainable development. Women’s empowerment has been shown to boost productivity and economic growth.
“Fundación Mujeres en Positivo” works on free legal and psychological counselling for women victims of violence. They develop training programs and human talent in entrepreneurship, leadership, soft skills, technology, art and culture through a group of volunteers in various branches that seeks to develop the autonomies of the most vulnerable women in our country.
