Ensure access to nutritious food, promote food saving in households and raise awareness around the value of food.

Housing

Providing families in need with adequate, safe and affordable housing.

Youth Employment

Fostering youth employment with a focus on S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) skills.

Forms of Support

We engage in projects emphasizing innovation, technology, quality and sustainability. As an international and multicultural organization, we strive to share a potential of our expertise and human talent.

Depending on the needs of the requesting organizations and projects and on internal evaluation, corporate giving can take different forms.

Charitable giving: the amount of cash giving

In-kind donations: the value of donated products and of pro-bono work

Employees volunteering: the value of time employees volunteer to contribute.
