    Goals / Remit

    The Mirpuri Foundation, incorporated by the Mirpuri family as a non-profit organization, was established by Paulo Mirpuri with the aim of contributing to a better world. Based on a commitment to make the world a better place for future generations, the Foundation allocates its resources and intelligence where they are most needed, focusing on 6 distinct areas: marine conservation, wildlife conservation, performing arts, social responsibility, medical education and research, and aeronautical education and research.

    By fostering a spirit of collaboration between global authorities, companies, communities and individuals, the non-profit organizations aims to positively impact the most pressing issues threatening our planet.

    On Marine Conservation, the Foundation promotes the management of ocean resources and its sustainability. It carries out initiatives to avoid the destruction of habitats, the depletion of species, pollution and other threats faced by oceans that often go unnoticed because underwater the scarring is not as evident and visible as the one we see on land.

    Wildlife Conservation needs to be a global joined effort to succeed and the Mirpuri Foundation is contributing to such efforts on a regional basis. Each year the planet lose natural wildlife habitat areas, this being the primary threat to the survival of several species. The Foundation has identified some major dangers to wildlife, such as global warming, illegal hunting, pollution and deforestation and supports projects that tackle these issues.

    Within the scope of the Performing Arts, Mirpuri Foundation is committed to supporting cultural endeavours for development and education through the Arts and the preservation of cultural heritage. Thus, it puts into practice initiatives that stimulate and encourage artistic production, providing the support often lacking from the Government.

    The Mirpuri Foundation supports projects and initiatives that benefit society and promotes Social Responsibility by encouraging companies and businesses to act positively through philanthropy, ethical labour practices, volunteering and efforts to support environmental sustainability. The Foundation focuses on supporting children and young people, old people and migrants in order to help them develop to their full present or future potential.

    The field of medicine has made great progress in the last 200 years, in 50 of which new technologies have played a key role in increasing life expectancy significantly in modern societies. However, we are now facing new disorders and the appearance of diseases that did not exist or were considered rare, many of them as a consequence of careless living habits and there are still vast parts of the world without the most basic health care system available. The Mirpuri Foundation believes in innovation and technology as the driving forces in medicine and focuses on research and education in order to open the path for development and enable a better living.

    On Aeronautical Research and Education, the Mirpuri Foundation fully supports the training of young people in several sectors of the Air Transportation Industry as well as aeronautical and aerospace research that can contribute to improving safety and progress. Furthermore it invests efforts into helping the industry become more sustainable through initiatives that lower itsr negative impact on the environment.
