Not all people are as well off as we are. Children, especially, belong to the big losers - not only in the developing countries, but also in Germany. For this reason we concentrate our national and international donations to the assistance of children. In this case, the education of the children is especially close at heart because we are convinced that good education is a prerequisite for getting out of the vicious circle of poverty.
A special concern are our thirteen godchildren who are spread across locations worldwide.
We think that apart from benefits in kind, which they receive within the framework of the godparenthood, it is important for the children to know: In the faraway country of Germany, there are persons who think of us and care. For this reason, we are keeping active contact to these children by sending them letter, pictures and small presents in regular intervals.
Our trainees take care of this “project”. To get involved concretely with the everyday reality of children in developing countries gives young people here in Germany some food for thought.
The fact that we are right with our ideas is revealed impressively by the lovingly created letters, drawings and pictures which we receive in regular intervals from our godchildren, and which are presented in our headquarters. Our customers as well as our employees like having a look at this information, and consider our involvement great.
