CSR Project “ Tanzania”
Answerthink has made a commitment to support a CSR Project for orphan children in Tanzania, Africa. Children are the hardest hit by poverty and injustice, therefore we are very pleased that Kleine Hilfsaktion e.V. will directly work on-site to take care of the children to create better living conditions for them. Read more about the project.
This project includes building an orphanage for 60 children with an integrated school for 150 pupils, that will include the orphans in Tanzania. Kleine Hilfsaktion will buy the property area. With the money collected by our global alliance, United VARs, will help pay for the construction of the building, which is estimated to be around 30k – 35k EUR.
This is the minimum amount we have pledged to collect; however any additional donations will be able to raise capacity and give more orphans a home and children the opportunity to study. After all, United VARs will support this project with 40k EUR, which also includes voluntary donations from its member companies.
The more donations received, then a higher amount of children are able to receive the basics for a hopeful future.
Supporting Project "WASH": Be part of this life changing initiative
For many, having access to clean water is a normal thing; however, in many countries a lack of clean water is something that causes more than 800,000 deaths worldwide for children under the age of five. Two years ago, United VARs managing director Detlef Mehlmann, visited Cambodia and witnessed these conditions and since then it is a project that he holds dearly. “The schools face disastrous hygienic conditions,” he said. “There is no drinking water. No toilets. No chance to even wash their hands. The students carry plastic bottles filled with water from dirty rivers. It was disconcerting to learn that this was the rule and not the exception. “
