VOLUNTEERING  - COMMITTED TO SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT

As one of the volunteers of the Library Project, Swiss employee Deborah Buerge was warmly welcomed by the children. “They encircled me right away. I was deeply impressed by their passion and thirst for knowledge.” “It’s a very meaningful activity. I will get involved if I get the chance again in the future,” said Deborah about the activity. Children are the hope of the future and education is the groundwork for the hope of the future. I hope that these libraries can broaden students’ horizons and knowledge,” said Zhang Yejiong, general manager of Sika (China) Ltd.

THE HOPE OF SIKA

The Hope of Sika let dreams go on. As Sika continues developing, its Library Project will go further and further. Since education can change the future, Sika organizes many different public service activities in countries around the globe. As a responsible transnational enterprise, Sika will continue fulfilling its social responsibilities and making a contribution to more educational welfare activities to spread the Hope of Sika to every corner of China. The Library Project, the Little Yellow Helper volunteers, and the Hope of Sika are eagerly waiting for their next reunion.
