Supported projects by P&H Family

We for others

As an entrepreneur, we also carry a social responsibility in addition to corporate responsibility. We are aware of that. And that’s why we support various projects that suit us. And behind whose ideas we stand 100%. Not just financially.

Sports promotion:

As former handball players, when it comes to promotion we think of sports, of course. And that young people should be encouraged practicing them. Since 2013 we support the indoor football club G.A. Bubi and since 2015 the SC Meran Handball. Besides, Barbara was hotelier godmother of Martina Menegoni and Soraya Caser, two players of the CF Südtirol Ladies in 2016. A support action against violence against women.

Plan International

The assumption of social responsibility and sustainable action are an integral part of our corporate culture. We measure our success not only economically, but also by how responsible we act.

In addition to sports, we also support other projects, especially for children and adolescents. Because they are our future. If we give them a chance, we invest in the society of the future.

With Plan International as our partner, we can become involved sustainably. Plan International offers us the expertise, experience and networks to successfully and sustainably participate in various projects.

Our newest project:

“Prevent malnutrition of children” in Cambodia

The physical and mental development of a child is decisively influenced in the first years of life.

In a regional comparison, Cambodia is still one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia. Especially in the rural regions of Stung Treng and Ratanakiri many children suffer from malnutrition. This weakens them and makes them susceptible to disease. Around 40 percent of the population also has no access to clean water and sanitary facilities.

Through its commitment, Plan International improves water and sanitation in this region, builds kindergartens and sensitizes parents to healthy eating. In addition, there will be organised training for parents, carers and health care staff to provide early childhood education for children up to the age of six years, thereby helping them grow up healthily.

Currently, the following measures are implemented:

  • Prevention and treatment of malnutrition
  • Installation of water supply systems and sanitary facilities
  • Construction, extension and renovation of 14 kindergartens
  • Trainings on balanced nutrition, early childhood education and hygiene

 

Our project 2018:

“Protecting girls and boys from child labor” in Tanzania

Many children in Tanzania work instead of going to school. In doing so, they contribute to the income of their families.

In and around Geita’s gold mines many children work in small-scale mining – sometimes up to 14 hours a day. They are at particularly high risk of violence and abuse. Mostly boys work in the mining industry themselves. By doing dangerous work, they risk serious damage to their health and even their lives. Girls are mainly engaged in the bars and restaurants that emerge around the mines.

Since 2012, Plan International has been committed to protecting children from dangerous and exploitative work in the mines. As a part of the project, girls and boys who work there have the chance to go to school or get an education.

Currently, the following measures are implemented:

  • Enabling school attendance of around 4,000 children
  • Vocational education for 182 young people
  • Further study for 141 teachers and 214 educators
  • Information sessions on child protection and labor law in mining for 5,972 small miners and workers
  • Development of a network for child protection with the creation of 20 child protection teams
  • Children’s rights training for 980 girls and boys in children’s parliaments
  • Establishment of 58 savings groups, to which 5,000 families will have access
