cargo-partner's social responsibility strategy is based on making sensible and effective investments into the future. This is why the company supports a variety of programs around the world which work towards improving children’s living conditions and creating a brighter tomorrow. Some of the recent projects were done with Jugend eine Welt. At the Jugend Eine Welt daycare center in Nitra, Slovakia, the Don Bosco Sisters care for Roma and Sinti children and their mothers. By providing education in Slovak language, the Sisters give families faced with poverty, unemployment and social discrimination a chance for a better future.
Other projects run by Jugend eine Welt together with the Don Bosco Sisters have also been funded. For example, cargo-partner supported the enlargement of an elementary school in Qartaba, near the Syrian border, as well as purchasing medication and providing general financial assistance to a hospital in the Syrian Capital of Damascus.
cargo-partner also helps empower deprived youth, especially girls, through quality higher education, job-oriented training and soft skills training in India. For instance, the company financed the construction of a hostel next to a Junior College in the Northern Indian district of Assam in 2013.
“Furthermore we are proud to support Jugend eine Welt in their effort to renew its website. In times where fast and straightforward help and charitable donations are crucial, it is extremely important to enable simple web-based donations. We are very grateful to be able to support these projects and numerous other social initiatives”, explains Christina Hainbuchner, Director of Corporate Communications & Marketing.
In 2006, cargo-partner started its “Asian Children Sponsorship Program”. The general concept is that each branch in the Asia-Pacific region cooperates with different organizations to support Child sponsorships in countries where cargo-partner has branch offices. For example, the local branch in Taiwan is working with World Vision International while the branches in China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia are cooperating with local initiatives for children in emergency situations.
