Germany: Promoting equal opportunities
The aim of our Born to Be projects in Germany is to promote educational and career opportunities for young people as well as equal opportunities. After all, social background and educational success are still closely linked. With our Made for Good initiatives, we strengthen the social startup scene and promote Germany’s innovative strength. We also help disadvantaged people and communities in emergency situations such as poverty, migration, unemployment or homelessness. In our Plus You program, employees volunteer their time to charitable projects – in 2018 with more than 110,000 hours in Germany alone. Many of them act as mentors to young people, pass on their experience and knowledge, or provide active help on site as part of a team.
