Arvato Financial Solutions Donates €30,000 to Support Income Security Program in the Philippines
Going beyond its commitment to local communities, Arvato Financial Solutions supported the global children’s aid organization “Plan International Deutschland e.V.” as part of its holiday campaign last year. Customers from all over the world actively participated in the company’s international holiday donation drive; together, they collected a sum of €30,000 that was donated in the company’s name.
CEO Michael Weinreich emphasized the company’s commitment to the project: “Education and income security, in particular, are benchmarks for the development of a society. That’s why we opted for a flagship project in the Philippines. We have a subsidiary there, and it is a country that promotes sustainable projects that help people to help themselves.”
To that end, the donated money will be put toward a long-term project focusing on income security. The goal of the project is to support families who lost their source of income as a result of Typhoon Bopha in 2012 or Typhoon Haiyan in November 2013. “Plan” helps the affected families manage their income and savings efficiently and find alternative sources of income, ensuring that the basic needs of men, women, and especially children are met.
Customers were active participants
The financial services provider once again relied on active participation from its customers. Instead of a Christmas present, they received a donation coupon that they could activate via the campaign webpage. Based on the extremely positive response, the company raised the total donation amount to €30,000.
Plan International Deutschland e.V. is an international children’s aid organization that has existed for 75 years. It operates in 50 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, and campaigns primarily for children’s rights. “Plan” hopes to help make the world a place where children will no longer live in poverty, where they can grow up healthy and live out their full potential. Helping people to help themselves is the focus of the organization’s work.
