Bosch Rexroth Ghana’s CSI benefits local orphanage
Bosch Rexroth Ghana has “adopted” an orphanage on the outskirts of the city as part of its ongoing CSI to uplift the surrounding communities. Fathers Home Care Ministries is a haven and home to 40 children aged 10 months to 12 years.
In late 2020, General Manager Alex Booth met with the Home’s board to see how they could support the children and orphanage. The importance of education was key to these discussions, and it was agreed that we would provide much-needed items to assist the children with their schooling requirements.
Each child received a brand new school bag, new pair of shoes and clothes. “While education is pivotal, we also wanted to help the children enjoy childhood as much as possible,” Alex says. To this end, we completely renovated the children’s playground, which was in much need of attention.
The swing, a see-saw and merry-go-round were rebuilt, 2 large sandboxes constructed and toys were provided for all children. Bosch Rexroth Ghana employees enjoyed painting and installing the playground.
“This playground goes hand-in-hand with the children’s development and brings much joy to them, as it did to all orphanage personnel on the day of the gifting,” said a spokesperson for Fathers Home Care Ministries.
“We have taken the decision to support the orphanage as part of our ongoing CSI service to Takoradi communities,” Alex says. “We will meet with the directors annually to determine the children’s educational, clothing and leisure requirements for the coming year.”
The beaming faces reflect joy and appreciation of Bosch Rexroth Ghana’s donations to the orphanage.
Backed by Primavera
Bosch Rexroth Ghana has also been allocated funding by the Primavera Foundation in Germany, an organisation of Bosch employees who mainly support various projects pertaining to children worldwide. “The funding is being used to help complete a partially built house on the orphanage premises,” Alex explains. The house, with re-construction having started early in March 2021, will accommodate 16 children once complete.
We remain dedicated to giving back to the communities in which we operate. Well done to Bosch Rexroth Ghana for living our #Values and helping others to #KeepMoving.”
