Plan International project conveys eco-friendly job skills to rural youth

Putting the finishing touch on another successful year, Vincotech, a supplier of module-based solutions for power electronics, has pledged €15,000 to a Plan International project in West Timor. The company has again opted to embrace the seasonal spirit of giving by donating to a worthy cause in lieu of traditional gifts to business partners.

This project imparts green agricultural skills to young women and men. Although the training qualifies rural youth for the formal labor market, it also does the environment a good turn. Around 500 young adults aged 18 to 29 are afforded the opportunity to earn a steady income while contributing to the region's sustainable development. Maike Röttger, Chairwoman of Plan International's Board of Directors, says, "Vincotech is a long-standing partner of Plan International and engages in many ways in the work we do. We thank Vincotech for this generous donation to the project in West Timor, which Vincotech had already supported this summer. Eckart Seitter, Senior VP Sales & Marketing at Vincotech, adds, "Vincotech stands for reliable partnership with our customers and business partners. It's a priority for us to engage in charitable and community activities to give back to society. As a core component of technology such as drives and solar inverters, our power modules contribute significantly as efficient energy use, and Vincotech thus contributes sustainably to environmental conservation efforts. That is why we have supported this project on several occasions." For more information about our partnership please see the Vincotech-partner-page at Plan International.
