Corporate social responsibility
Supporting children and youngsters has been one of WING’s most important initiatives for the past 10 years. As part of the company’s efforts, it has made a donation to the Children’s Hospital on Madarász Street. Furthermore, it became the main financial supporter of the Jövőbarát Foundation, an endowment for disadvantaged children from poor areas, for more than a decade. In 2011, WING launched a scholarship program for aiding talented, but underprivileged children in their educational endeavors. Moreover, in 2017, the firm backed one of the largest student-led scholarly forums in Hungary – the “Országos Tudományos Diákköri Konferencia (OTDK)” – and prized the most outstanding attendees throughout the 23 subgroups of the 4 main divisions.
In 2018 WING became the main supporter of the SOS Gyermekfalvak Foundation to financially help children living with foster families. The company’s donation of 5 Million HUF provides sufficient funding for the yearly operation of 3 SOS houses, directly impacting the lives of the 15-18 children who are relying on them.
The SOS Gyermekfalvak Foundation provides safe and nurturing homes to 400 children who had been separated from their families due to parental abuse, negligence, or other serious issues. Due to its efforts, these children can live and grow up with loving foster parents in friendly single-family-houses. The Foundation is present in 134 countries, and is one of the most well-known organization for child protection in Hungary with more than 35 years of successful operation. One unique feature of SOS Gyermekfalvak is that it does not separate siblings from each other when finding foster families. Allowing the children to rely on their brothers and sisters to overcome their traumas helps them significantly to fit in and live a happy life.
