Minden Foundation for Children
The Minden Foundation for Children supports regional children for better chances in life. Children need encouragement to be well educated, to take on responsibility, to keep up values and create a positve society. For many reasons this encouragement is lacking for many children.
The foundation has been started in 2008 by two Minden companies as a Protestant Church foundation.
We support this foundation financially and campaign for this personally.
An example for corporate commitment is the "Childcare Initiative Minden gGmbH" that has been founded by us and five local companies in coorperation with the local child protection agency.
Often we experience the troubles of our employees to find a kindergarten for their children younger than 3 years old. With our commitment we want to improve the child care situation for our emlployees. We are happy, if those young families have to worry a little less. At the same time we give the mothers or fathers the opportunity to take over their part in the company's success again.
Together we plead for a child-friendly society that enables the compatibility of family and work actively. The contributing companies enable the employees from Minden in total 60 new child care spots.
Culture summer stage
Since 2011 we support cultural highlights for our region by participating the Minden culture summer stage.
This year we support on August 30th (together with a local bank) the singer NENA who is a huge part of German pop culture and internationally famous for "99 Red Balloons".
