Shaping the future
Social project Romania – Geberit apprentices in action
The organization “Hospice Casa Sperantei” cares for seriously ill people in Bucharest who are dependent on free support. The new hospice in the center of Bucharest provides in-patient care as well as day-care facilities. In 2013, Geberit funded the building of the hospice and the installation of the sanitary facilities. Eight Geberit apprentices were responsible for part of the sanitary work. In addition to technical installation tasks, the young apprentices also undertook valuable voluntary work.
Helvetas and Geberit – working together to provide access to water
In 2010, Geberit and the Swiss development organization Helvetas agreed on a partnership to provide one million people with access to clean water by 2013. This goal was already reached by the end of 2012. The partnership has continued right through the “International Year of Water Cooperation” – as 2013 was declared by the United Nations. This success story highlights just what can be achieved by two partners in pursuit of a joint vision.
The Swiss Water Kiosk Foundation – clean drinking water in Bangladesh
Clean drinking water means fewer diseases. The University of Applied Sciences Rapperswil (CH) has developed a solar water pasteurization system. Several water treatment systems are already in operation in Bangladesh. As we wish to improve the long-term quality of life for these people, Geberit has been supporting the project since 2012.
