2020: HOERBIGER is committed to school project in Mozambique

HOERBIGER has always given something back to society through social projects. In 2019, the decision was made to support a major aid project at Group level in addition to the many local commitments. The decision was made in favor of a cooperation with the Pestalozzi Children's Village Foundation: The project "Ler é Bom" - Reading is Good - aims to improve the schooling of children in Mozambique.

Ler é Bom aims to improve the reading and writing skills of pupils in grades 1 to 3 at 20 elementary school in the districts of Marracuene and Boane. HOERBIGER has supported the project since 2020 for a period of three years as sole sponsor.

Currently the schools in Mozambique are closed due to Covid19. Before classes can start again, special hygiene concepts must be introduced. Through the partnership with HOERBIGER, the schools received mobile washing stations as well as aid packages with soap and masks for the students and teachers.
