New #VoithCares program gets underway: Voith supports 50 social projects worldwide
Technology Group Voith is conscious of its social responsibilities and for a long time now has been demonstrating its commitment to society through a wide range of measures. Last year, Voith stepped up its commitment by launching the #VoithCares program.
Within the scope of this initiative, Voith employees from all locations were invited to nominate projects at non-profit organizations where they volunteer to receive support from Voith. During the submission period, around 100 applications were received from employees from all around the world. The #VoithCares committee has now selected 50 projects from among all the submissions to receive support in fiscal 2022/23. The total funding amount is €50,000, half of which will be covered by the Hanns Voith Foundation. The program provides for selected projects to receive €1,000 a year.
The #VoithCares program aims to use the selected projects to continue to breathe life into the Voith DNA “developing sustainable technologies for future generations” as a reflection of the company’s commitment to society. As well as educational, environmental and cultural projects, the program supports infrastructure, integration and inclusion measures, and projects to help people in need.
Twenty-six projects in Europe and Africa will now receive €1,000 each. These include a housing project for people with disabilities in Waischenfeld; support for the organization “Heidenheim for Ukraine”; musical culture projects in Heidenheim and Armenia; a center of competence for canine search and rescue in Heidenheim; the construction of a woodworking training workshop in Nepal, and a youth center for educational support in Ghana. #VoithCares is also supporting nine charitable organization projects in North America and nine in Asia, and another six projects in South America
