Our employees participated in the programmes of Junior Achievement Portugal, during the 2016/2017 school year, an association whose objective is to foster entrepreneurship among children and young people, by teaching on topics such as relations with family and the community, economics, the European Union and even on how to set up a business.
The number of employees who participated in this school year stood at 121 volunteers.
During the Christmas season, we organised an internal welfare campaign with great success with the aim of offering gifts to 124 children, until the age of 13, living in foster homes supported by the Group throughout the year.
There was also a fundraising campaign for the Association for Cerebral Paralysis of Odemira which was promoted during the Christmas Dinner that brought together over 900 managers.
The amount raised was matched by the Group, being channelled to support logistical needs and for purchasing pedagogic instruments to aid the work of technicians who work with 105 children and young people in special education, aged up to 18, who attend schools in the district of Odemira.
