In our work, we value mutual appreciation, equal treatment, equal pay, continued training and genuine social responsibility. That is why, alongside our own projects, we are cooperating with various non-profit organisations, both nationally and internationally, to contribute to the common good on step at a time.
Together we can help refugees to find a job, integrate into their company and give themselves and their families an opportunity for a new, worry-free life. We can offer socially disadvantaged children and families the opportunity to be more productive and get help where it is needed. And we can help people from poorer countries earn a living and prevent disease. Because everyone deserves a chance.
Donating together - creating opportunities
What exactly does Actions Speak Louder than Words mean for these projects? We donate about 10% of our net profit from the previous year by distributing the amount equally among all these charitable projects on a monthly basis. This allows each organisation to leverage the money for its individual challenges and realise its mission, month after month and year after year.

Offering refugees a perspective - kriegkstr12

The voluntary association works together with the AWO Frankfurt Youth Foundation on various projects to prevent the division of society and promote mutually beneficial social coexistence. Their projects include jam sessions, joint film evenings and excursions, as well as a catering service and clothing donations for the homeless.

The extracted material is to be sorted and recycled on land and later used to manufacture new products.
