Connox decided to work on a long-term basis and to help sustainably this year. Therefore it accepted 20 godchildren in Mali, all of them girls that suffer from a lack of school education, health facilities access and clean water. Partly without parents, these girls have scarcely any hope for perspectives because of their hard life situation.
After the great success of the charity for the Welthungerhilfe (World Hunger Aid) in Christmas of 2010; the Connox team decided to also do something good this year. Guided by the desire of helping sustainably and to include the team, the selection landed on the children aid organization Plan Germany. Inside of a long-lasting sponsorship, each employee has the possibility of contacting one godchild. The Connox GmbH bears the costs.
In finally became true in November: Connox officially adopted 20 sponsorships for girls in Mali – every employee contacts one girl. All of the girls come from the Kangaba Region and will receive individual support while the community Kangaba will also be supported by Connox. But not only financial support explains a sponsorship. The personal connection between the godchild and the sponsor is especially important to Plan Germany. Letters and the exchange of images make up the emotional component of the sponsorship and reinforce the self-esteem of the godchild.
The Connox team is glad to have the chance of supporting the work of the children aid organization Plan from now on and hopes to also encourage some customers to do the same. Therefore there is more information about the sponsorships and about Plan on the Connox website. Furthermore it is worth to visit the Plan Germany website: http://www.plan-deutschland.de (German page).
