ARBES HELPS KIDS’ EDUCATION THROUGH THE HILTON FOUNDATION
ARBES Technologies, the prominent supplier of modern software solutions for banks and financial institutions, has decided, at the occasion of its annual New Year’s Customer Event, to start cooperation with the Hilton in the Community Foundation, which supports the development of children’s education in the Czech Republic through the Tereza Maxová Foundation.
The local strategy of the Hilton hotels in Prague in the area of sustainable business and corporate social responsibility is derived from the global strategy of Hilton Worldwide. In order to achieve the defined objectives in these areas, Hilton set up the Hilton in the Community Foundation. One of the campaigns run by the foundation is the sale of rubber ducks called “Ducks for Change,” within which one euro from each sale is donated to a local charity organization. In the Czech Republic, the Hilton in the Community Foundation teamed up with the Tereza Maxová Foundation, the principal mission of which is to make it possible for every child to grow up in a family. With more than 24,000 children in institutional care, the Czech Republic is sadly on the top of the list of European countries ranked according to the number of children growing up outside of their own family.
“In the upcoming years, ARBES Technologies – acting within its Corporate Social Responsibility – will get involved in a number of projects that will help mainly in the area of supporting the social integration of children and students who were not as lucky to be growing up in a family,” said Jan Denemark, the CEO of ARBES Technologies, and he added: “As a company that employs highly skilled staff, we are well aware of the fact that without support for continuous education, it is impossible to find good employment in technological companies. In the case of the project we are running with Hilton, not only do you support a good cause by purchasing the rubber duck, you will also get a great bath toy.”
In order to fulfill these goals, ARBES Technologies chose to cooperate with the Hilton in the Community Foundation, Czech Republic – not only thanks to it being a trustworthy institution, but also because of the type of charitable organization they choose to support in the Czech Republic. ARBES Technologies will continue its cooperation with this foundation for future events, mainly because the company considers this cooperation in the field of corporate social responsibility to be worthwhile.
