Our main initiatives to choose from this year
Students visiting the delaware booth could choose between three initiatives we believe in and actively support: WeForest, the Special Olympics and Plan Belgium International. Together with WeForest, delaware makes our planet cooler by preserving and planting trees. Through different activities, from donating money for every click on our website, to buying trees for all kilometres that #peopleofdelaware run, walk or cycle, we have already funded 70,685 trees over the past years, both in Brasil and Zambia. The students’ donations will be used to further restore forest grounds by planting trees and to support research to preserve and restore forest grounds and reduce carbon emission.
The second main initiative is the Special Olympics. As a bronze sponsor, delaware boosts the care, respect, commitment and team spirit of all its volunteers to tackle the inactivity, stigma, isolation and injustice that people with intellectual disabilities face. During the yearly National Games, the Special Olympics team can even count on 100 #peopleofdelaware volunteers. Every three euro gathered during the job fairs will be used to further create awareness about inclusive sport practices and organize the many events of the Special Olympics. Finally, a good education for boys and girls is key for a sustainable future. When only ten students donate three euro at the job fair to Plan International Belgium, as much as four children will get the opportunity to go to school for a whole year. Isn’t that great?
