Alphabet supports SOS Children's Villages.

Who is SOS?

"SOS Children's Villages has been working for more than 60 years to provide vulnerable children with a home and a future. Let's say: a new start in life. We are doing this in 133 countries throughout the world. In Belgium, too." ? soskinderdorpen.be

SOS Kinderdorpen [Children's Villages] is an international, non-governmental social aid organisation that has been working for the needs, interests and rights of children. They are doing this in no less than 133 countries. They work in the spirit of the International Treaty on Children's Rights and support those rights worldwide.

What do they do?

SOS Children's Villages tries with various projects to ensure that every child gets the chance to grow up and build a good future for himself. Among other things, they provide a home for children who have no-one to look after them; they build schools and provide medical assistance.

SOS Children's Villages has developed outstanding projects, both nationally and internationally, which offer children all over the world a better future.

How does Alphabet support SOS Children's Villages?

Alphabet has been supporting SOS Children's Villages since 2006. Each year, various campaigns are organised to support the organisation locally and internationally. We also give clients and staff members the opportunity to offer a bit of support. This year, the Simbahuis is being entirely supported by Alphabet.

Alphabet fosters the White Stork

Taking an active part in the conservation of nature can be done perfectly by becoming a patron of one of the animals in the Antwerp ZOO or Planckendael (KMDA). This is something Alphabet is delighted to do. Since july 2014 it has been the proud patron of the White Stork.

Sustainability

Patronage of this kind underlines Alphabet's social commitment. A partner such as the KMDA - Koninklijke Maatschappij voor Dierkunde van Antwerpen [Royal Zoological Society of Antwerp] - is perfectly in line with that commitment. After all, the KMDA is a progressive enterprise that, like Alphabet, works hard for sustainability.

The income of the Antwerp and Planckendael ZOO - and thus the contribution of the patrons as well - goes entirely towards the working of the zoos and the CRC, the research centre for the conservation of nature.
