We are excited to share a heartwarming achievement that reflects the Schulte Group's commitment to making a meaningful impact on our local community. We have successfully raised 35,000 Euros to support the SOS Children's Village mission in Athens.
SOS Children's Villages, an innovative global non-profit organisation, has provided alternative care and education to children who have lost their families since its inception in Austria in 1949. Recognising the pressing need to support underprivileged students in Greece, especially in the wake of economic instability and the challenges brought by COVID-19, we took the initiative to launch the SOS Children's Villages Fundraiser.
Thanks to the incredible support of our Schulte Group employees, friends, family, partners, and valued customers, we achieved our fundraising goal. We are immensely proud to announce that this collective effort has empowered the education of 200 children under the compassionate care of SOS Children's Villages.
The impact of this contribution is profound - 4000 hours of educational activities, 84 hours of counselling for the students, coverage of the school's utility fees, and the provision of essential educational supplies and snacks for an entire year. Through this gesture, we have taken a step towards addressing the challenges faced by children and fostering a brighter future for them.
This achievement would not have been possible without the dedication and generosity of everyone who contributed to this cause. Over 70 employees collectively ran 1431 km, wearing the SOS Children's Village logo to promote their mission during the Athens Authentic Marathon and engaged their network to raise funds!
Thank you to all who contributed to this remarkable journey of giving back and making a difference. Together, we are building a stronger, more inclusive society for children.
