Not just a donation – an affair of the heart
SimPlan AG from Hanau, a medium-sized service and software company for material flow simulation and digital twins, which has now been in existence for 30 years, is once again supporting the Frankfurt aid association PROCEDI with a donation.
With education against poverty – PROCEDI is a government-independent school social project in Guatemala, because not everywhere in the world children have the same chances for education. It is a matter close to SimPlan AG’s heart to support the aid organization PROCEDI in its anniversary year once again with a donation, this time in the amount of € 5,000, and to make its contribution to good education.
The aim of PROCEDI is to support socially disadvantaged families in their holistic development in order to contribute to a higher standard of living and better integration into society. In addition to school lessons and homework supervision, the approximately 110 children and young people also receive psychological and medical care as well as food and clothing to cover their basic needs. In addition, the project serves as a contact point for local residents: Training, sewing and literacy courses for adults are offered, among other things.
Donations such as those from SimPlan AG are particularly important, says Markus Kallis, a member of the board of PROCEDI e. V. in Germany. According to Kallis, 50% of the project in Guatemala is financed by such individual donations.
SimPlan AG attaches great importance to transparency in its donations. And so, on February 14, 2022, an informal exchange took place between Saskia Schneider, chairwoman of PROCEDI in Guatemala, Markus Kallis, member of the board of PROCEDI e.V. in Frankfurt and the board of SimPlan AG. Prof. Dr. Spieckermann, Dr. Burges and Dr. Kestenbaum from SimPlan AG were able to get an idea of how the donated funds are used on site and that they really and directly help in corona-related difficult times.
