Christmas comes earlier this year
Traditionally, AdEx Partners supports social organizations with donations at Christmas. Regarding the current situation, Christmas cannot start early enough for us this year.
2020 was a year that required a lot of willingness to change from all of us. We have to adapt, be it in our professional or private lives. No one will be left without a trace this year.
But it has also made it clear to us what really matters. Cohesion, solidarity, and investment in our future are more important than ever, as well as courageously dealing with challenges to come.
That is why we have decided to expand our donation campaign traditionally associated with Christmas. This year we will support not only the Childaid Network but also a Corona relief fund in Germany. In this way, we are committed to serving others both locally and globally and support them even more than before with donations and personal commitment.
In August 2020, the non-profit analysis and consulting company Phineo gAG set up a Corona relief fund for Civil Society. Solidarity is essential to overcome the social impact of the Corona crisis. The rescue fund is intended to help maintain the vibrant and diverse civil society involvement in Germany; it is needed more than ever.
Be it sports clubs, cultural institutions, help for the homeless, neighborhood, educational or youth projects: Whoever gets into financial difficulties due to corona, is mainly privately financed and can demonstrate a fundamentally impact-oriented work, has good chances to be supported by the relief fund. The financial support is intended to maintain voluntary work for target groups that are particularly affected by corona.
With a donation in September, AdEx Partners was one of the first support partners of the Corona relief fund to provide unbureaucratic and sustainable help to non-profit organizations whose existence is threatened by Corona.
Sometimes Christmas simply has to come early. Every donation counts and has a big impact. Perhaps you too would like to become a sponsor of the Corona relief fund?
As in previous years, another part of our donation goes to the charitable foundation Childaid Network. Its vision is to provide needy children and youths with a qualified basic education, among other things, in order to provide them with an important foundation for a self-determined life and thus a better future.
The Corona Pandemic has India under control and hits the poorest people hardest. Apart from the health risks, the sources of income lost due to the curfews are even more striking. Families are threatened with starvation because as day laborers they no longer have the opportunity to earn money for essential food.
This year, AdEx Partners supports the children in the refugee camps on the border to Bhutan, who are severely affected by the crisis. Their parents are no longer able to find employment, as overnight all casual jobs have been stopped. Although Childaid Network usually focuses on education, they invested in food parcels to prevent starvation of young people and their families in the project areas by providing emergency aid.
Under high pressure, Childaid Network developed relief efforts: Instead of reading and calculating, teachers and social workers taught hygiene and prevention measures. At the same time, creative concepts were developed during the crisis to make teaching possible again under hygiene conditions. Primary school children are taught in small groups, and children - where possible - are equipped with digital technology.
Soon the schools are supposed to reopen, and Childaid Network is prepared to bring education to the poorest through tutoring and scholarships. 30 € are needed for a one-year scholarship.
It is a matter of the heart for AdEx Partners to support the important work of Childaid Network to give children and young people access to good education and to strengthen them, especially in the global crisis.
In addition to donations, we again donated our expertise this year to make organizations more effective through digitalization and IT. This is how we would like to make our contribution as AdEx Partners. You can find more information about this on our Corporate Responsibility page.
