Distribution of resources

Mandatory Contribution for Education and Cooperative Promotion (COEPC by its Spanish acronym)

In 2012, ORONA dedicated 617,000 € to promote research and education centres and support cultural and social activities and training. A portion of these funds were also dedicated to cooperative development projects in third-world countries. Our goal is to increase this contribution on a year-by-year basis.

At ORONA, the profits that matter most are those that benefit the community.

ORONA dedicates a portion of its earnings to supporting social, educational, and cultural projects in communities where the company operates, while also funding collaborative projects in developing countries.

ORONA is a founding partner of the NGO Mundukide Foundation.

The Mundukide Foundation was founded in 1999 with the goal of promoting worldwide cooperation. It promotes cooperative development projects with a variety of poverty-stricken groups and communities.

MUNDUKIDE's mission is focused on cooperation with the peoples of the developing world, sharing experiences, resources, and know-how in order to promote self-managed and integrated development for the groups involved, thereby advancing the working world's cooperative solidarity.

MUNDUKIDE's values are:

Work + solidarity = Social transformation

Training, technical assistance, and institutional enhancement programmes directed towards groups or collectives with an ideological affinity for cooperation and which have in some way requested the Foundation's support.
