Itaipu encourages its employees to participate in outreach and charitable projects.

The Volunteer Force program promotes volunteerism at the company by organizing the supply and demand of volunteers for charities and not-for-profit events.

It was created in 2005 upon request from a group of employees who wished to help the community.

The company supports the initiatives by providing a venue where activities can be developed and encouraging employee participation. It also provides funds for program centers in Curitiba and Foz do Iguaçu. 

The Volunteer Force holds internal and external activities, campaigns and also volunteer training classes.

One of the actions is the Projects Bank that forwards financial resources to the charities appointed by employees and selected by the company. In 2008, eight institutions will be selected to receive R$ 5 thousand each.

Among Volunteer Force campaigns are the “Winter Drive”, which receives donations of blankets, warm clothes and shoes; the “Adopt a Little Star this Christmas”, which buys toys and school supplies for low-income children in Foz do Iguaçu and Curitiba; and the “Owed Income Tax Destination Campaign”, which encourages employees to contribute part of their income tax to charitable institutions.

Volunteer activities are carried out freely outside working hours at not-for-profit organizations and/or projects in compliance with law 9608/98 (Volunteer Service Law), which recommends volunteers to sign a Volunteer Contract with the organization.
