We take action today

To foster opportunity in the communities where we operate

We coordinate efforts with civil society to democratize knowledge and opportunities through education, thus creating more inclusive futures. To achieve this, we develop technology education initiatives for young people, mainly focused on developing the necessary skills for them to be agents of change in the 21st century.

Another focus of our work is strengthening social organizations by providing them with technological tools to raise the funds they need to fulfill their missions. We also mobilize our users to exercise their citizenship within our ecosystem, thereby promoting a culture of digital donation in Latin America.

“The collaboration between the Brazilian Red Cross and Mercado Pago has brought together a solidarity chain of people across the country in order to get humanitarian aid to Bahia. Actions like this require a careful look at those in need, in order to support them more and more and reduce their suffering.”
