PwC Hungary organised a joint CR project with one of our special clients, E.ON. We helped the Zoltán Kovács Foundation Kindergarten, which provides free services to children with multiple disadvantages who otherwise would not be able to go to a kindergarten and prepare for school.
The first part of the project involved PwC and E.ON employees collecting clothes, food and toys. The two companies also donated a washing machine and a dryer. About ten sacks of clothes, ten big boxes of toys and twenty boxes of food were donated. In the next part of the project, sixty volunteers from the two companies renovated the garden of the Kindergarten, laying a lawn, putting sand under the swings, and painting benches, swings, and cupboards.
The children come from poor families that cannot provide them with proper clothes and meals. These are provided by the kindergarten, which, as a foundation, uses donations for this purpose.
"These children should be given as many opportunities to succeed in life as any other children born in Hungary or anywhere else in the world. However, we know that we don't start out with the same opportunities, and this is where we want to help: our aim is to make up for the disadvantages and give underprivileged children a chance," said Krisztina Debre, head of the Zoltán Kovács Foundation Kindergarten.
”In addition to our professional collaboration, we wanted to carry out other joint activities, to do something good and create value,” said Armin Krug, Assurance Partner & CR Leader at PwC.
”I hope we can set an example to other companies and that we will hear of more events like this in Hungary. I think the results speak for themselves,” said László Radványi, Assurance Manager at PwC.
”I think today’s event is one of the sort that E.ON has deliberately chosen. Where we have the opportunity and ability, we will help,” said Attila Kiss, Director of Energy Controlling and Optimization at E.ON.
