Vincotech has quite an anniversary to celebrate. This marks the tenth year the company has supported Plan International Germany’s projects.
Vincotech's social commitment runs deep; Plan International’s humanitarian reach ranges wide. The two forged a partnership that has stood the test of time. Vincotech donates to advance the organization’s philanthropic agenda every year. 2021 is no exception: in June the customer satisfaction survey was combined with a fundraising campaign, and in December instead of Christmas gifts the company donates €12,000 to support a project in Nepal.
Eckart Seitter, CEO, says, “Vincotech is all about reliable partnerships with customers and business partners. Society deserves nothing less from us. Giving back to the community and paying it forward to those less privileged is a reward unto itself. This is why we nurture our enduring partnership with Plan International, whose aid projects on behalf of children's welfare and rights are exemplary. We are proud to be contributing to initiatives as worthy as these.”
This year’s grant goes to build schools in Nepal where mountainous terrain, harsh weather, sparse infrastructure and great distances make it difficult for many children to attend school. Plan International is building barrier-free classrooms in earthquake-proof buildings to afford educational opportunities to more kids. In winter, when the snow and cold make long journeys to school even harder, lessons are to be held over the radio and given by local teachers. Competitions and classroom book corners go to promote reading. Topics such as equality and hygiene are now on the syllabus. Separate sanitary facilities are to encourage girls to attend school.
