Aside from education and science, WACKER is also very active in social projects for children and young people. Since 2007, we have supported a German charity, Die Arche. It mainly helps five- to twelve-year-olds from socially disadvantaged families in several German cities. In 2007 and 2008, WACKER donated €100,000 per year to support and expand this charity’s work in Munich. Here, Die Arche helps 80 to 100 children daily with warm meals, homework assistance and extracurricular activities, as well as advice and counseling. Thanks to WACKER’s donations, the Munich branch has been able to enhance its youth projects by expanding its premises and hiring a new social worker.
