mängIn 2016 Bayer supported the SOS children´s villages in Baltic countries with the donation of 18 500 EUR for educational projects.

“We are very proud, that we can contribute to the education of children who need it the most. As a science based company, we firmly believe, that education is the key to a better future for everyone ,” said Olaf Gerber, Managing Director of Bayer in Baltic countries.

Bayer´s donation will help children in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania to join individual tutoring and counselling programs and different trainings. The support also includes programs for struggling families.

“Well-targeted individual social and psychological support makes families functioning and let children attend school. We all know, that stimulating educational environment is essential to a child’s development,” said Kadi Sumberg from Estonian SOS Children´s Village organization. “That’s why SOS Children’s Villages runs individual support programs in social centers and in primary schools that match the needs of the local communities and use new modern child centered methodology to heal children’s traumas,” she continued.

Bayer in Baltics has supported SOS children´s villages since 2011.
