In Germany, too, the HORSCH Foundation supports numerous projects, e.g. at community level, but also with regard to the co-operation with universities and the support of students. HORSCH attaches major importance to a commitment on site at the sites in Schwandorf, Ronneburg and Landau. For example by the initiative Integration SAD which is closely connected to the HORSCH Foundation. The initiative was founded in 2015, the year after the big refugee movements, and its objective is to support refugees with regard to integration and access to the labour market in the district of Schwandorf. Therefore, the initiative initiates, plans and accompanies projects and supports voluntary commitment. A special focus is on the integration of women which are provided with special leisure time and learning facilities. Thus, more than 100 mothers have already taken part in German language courses in different towns in the district of Schwandorf. They were supported by 30 consultants as well as by more than 100 volunteers.
The Foundation is also involved in Landau and Ronneburg: in Landau it mainly supports already existing projects. In Ronneburg it creates new projects which on the one hand serve the social interaction and on the other hand open learning spaces for topics like nature, sustainability and environment.
For these and a lot of other projects we consider it as a privilege to take on social responsibility in co-operation with a lot of committed people and thus to be able to contribute to healthy human beings and a healthy environment beyond our company.
