Chile Neighborhood Program
The Chile Neighborhood Program aims to contribute, with an integrated and participative method, to overcome the poverty of inhabitants in precarious settlements throughout the country through a substantial improvement of their residential situation, the quality of their environment and their social and labor opportunities. To this end, the program seeks to complement and coordinate financial resources and technical capacities of ministries and public services with those of the private world, represented by civil society and business organizations, so as to make them available to the population living in these settlements and to conceive of articulated projects for overcoming poverty at the local level. The program also seeks to strengthen community organization and participation, so as to ensure its leading role in the design and implementation of the plans and projects that involve and impact them.
