Many businesses talk about giving back to the community. Now one energy company is going a step further by launching their own philanthropic program to help those in need. That company, Stream Energy is proud to launch the Stream Cares program.
So what exactly is the Stream Cares program? This philanthropic effort was designed to help local communities through a variety of fundraising events. Created by Stream Energy, Stream Cares has helped raise thousands of dollars through various fundraising efforts.
One of the most recent efforts includes a fundraising effort at the company’s recent Ignition 2016 convention. It was at this convention that employees for Stream Energy were able to raise over $3,000. The funds came from t-shirt sales as well as direct donations. And all of the proceeds went to help members of the military as well as members of military families. Efforts like this are one of many programs created by Stream Cares.
In addition to creating charity programs, Stream Cares also recently worked with other charitable foundations such as The American Red Cross Services To The Armed Forces, Operation Once In A Lifetime, and Cell Phones For Soldiers. By supporting a number of foundations, Stream Cares is able to spread its support far and wide.
In addition to the above mentioned charitable foundations, Stream Cares has also worked with a number of other charitable foundations in the past. Among the charities previously supported by Stream Cares includes Habitat For Humanity, Texas Tornado Benefit, Girls, Inc., and Hope Supply Co.
Stream Energy is known as one of the leading suppliers of direct essential services to hundreds of thousands of customers around the United States. With over a decade of service, the company has generated over $7 billion dollars of revenue since the company’s inception. As the company continues to revolutionize the energy sector, Stream Energy will also continue to focus their effort on helping as many people as possible through Stream Cares.
The Brazilian government has signed an agreement with a consortium of private investors to boost basic sanitation throughout the country. The private investors were represented by the National Bank for Economic and Social Development and Trata Brasil. The latter is an organization that manages sanitation projects. The firm’s president Edison Carlos believes that the partnership will improve resource management, which was previously the main challenge facing sanitation projects.
The partnership mainly seeks to reduce waste levels. Prominent Brazilian infrastructural guru Felipe Montoro Jens points out that there needs to be a paradigm shift as far as basic sanitation concerned. At the moment, a whopping 90% of sanitation services is provided by the government with private firms accounting for a paltry 10%. The narrative needs to change by giving private firms a larger stake. Besides having the required manpower and machinery, the private sector has the financial muscle to provide sanitation services.
Felipe advices that the inclusion of private companies in waste management is long overdue. Nonetheless, there is need to create a good working relationship between the government and the private sector so that the two complement each other’s efforts. This is likely to be achieved if the recently-signed concession is anything to go by. BNDES is mandated with the role of financing the initiatives besides ensuring that each project is designed to address challenges facing communities living in each locality.
