Alois Müller supports Uganda Freunde e.V. | Christmas donation of 5,000 euros
As part of its sustainable business policy, the Alois Müller company is again supporting social causes in the run-up to Christmas this year. Under the motto “donate instead of give”, the company presented HoffnungStern Uganda Freunde e.V. with a donation of 5,000 euros instead of customer gifts and Christmas cards.
“We want to support the association in its important tasks and therefore we decided to forego Christmas presents for our customers and business partners,” emphasized Marco Lambart, Head of Marketing & PR at the handover, placing the campaign under the motto “donate instead of give”.
The donation will go to the “Hosfa Vocational Training Center” in Mityana, a small town in western Uganda. There, young people will be able to train as solar technicians. “Qualified training is the only hope for these children and young people to learn a profession in order to escape poverty,” points out Peter Förg from the board team of the association of HoffnungStern Uganda Freunde e.V.. In addition, it is planned that the Ugandan trainees will set up a small production facility in which mini solar lamps will be manufactured.
