Salazar Resources is genuinely committed to ensuring that its projects have a positive impact on Ecuadorian communities and the economy.
Established in 2020, The Salazar Foundation is an independent non-profit which is supported by Salazar Resources Ltd as well as other private donors, including Salazar Resources’ CEO Fredy Salazar. It enables the Salazar Resources team to build on the CSR initiatives that it has introduced in the thirteen years since its creation. It has recently run a campaign to raise money and provide supplies to alleviate the impact of Covid-19 on local communities.
The vision and inspiration for the Salazar Foundation stems from Fredy Salazar’s deep desire to create lasting benefits for communities impacted by resource operations.
An Ecuadorian himself, Fredy has lived among the communities, providing him with an inherent understanding of the challenges they face in the pursuit of economic stability and independence.
From the very start of his journey as an exploration geologist and environmental scientist in Ecuador 35 years ago, he has first-hand experience of how resource development can act as a powerful catalyst for true sustainable development.
