From the beginning, the SMEC Foundation has been led by employees who worked on large infrastructure projects next to underprivileged communities saw the needs of communities around the project environments where we worked and wanted to get involved. They saw a need, and had the skills, to help connect and uplift these communities.
The SMEC Foundation has been making a difference by helping the communities in which we operate – connecting our local businesses and employees to uplift their local communities.
Our colleagues are adept at developing constructive approaches to alleviating hardship. While funding is critical, the hands-on support provided by our locally based offices and teams makes the execution of these projects particularly effective.
The Foundation aims to improve the quality of life for people who live in geographic regions where SMEC has a presence, by addressing the root causes of poverty and assisting communities (and individuals) to become more self-sufficient.
