In December 2011, Motul launched Motul Corazón, a foundation under the aegis of the Fondation de France. Motul Corazón’s guiding purpose is to support actions in favor of children anywhere in the world who are underprivileged or experiencing difficulties.
1) Origin of Motul Corazón
How was the name & logo chosen?
The idea of setting up recurrent actions in favor of children was born in Latin America, long before the creation of a foundation. The name of the Foundation is thus a tribute to this genesis.
« Corazón », meaning “heart” in Spanish has been chosen to represent love towards children. The Heart is an international symbol, understandable by all, and especially by all children.
Why was Motul Corazón created?
The Foundation Motul Corazón has been created for the following reasons:
Motul, a company with a long and rich history, is above all a family, a group of men and women sharing the same values, among which « Commitment ».
By placing its People in the heart of its strategy, the Group is showing everyday its respect for human beings and their development.
While respecting its roots, Motul is a Group looking towards the future.
2) Objectives of Motul Corazón
The Motul Corazón Foundation – under the aegis of the Fondation de France - has been created to help children, underprivileged or undergoing difficulties.
The actions of the Foundation are not limited geographically. Projects may be supported in any country as long as the correct allowance and utilization of the funds can be guaranteed.
The Motul Corazón Foundation is not to organize actions itself but to support actions of existing organizations or associations.
Motul Corazón is the result of the Group’s commitment towards Humanity. Although the idea of the foundation was born in Latin America, its scope remains global.
