SimPlan AG donates to a school in the poor district of Guatemala City
As in previous years, Procedi, a non-governmental organization for social work with children operating in Guatemala, was pleased to receive a donation from Hanau-based simulation provider SimPlan AG. Board members Dr. Sven Spieckermann, Dr. Harry Kestenbaum and Dr. Ulrich Burges proudly presented Charlotte Rendel and Markus Kallis with the donation amounting to 3,600 euros. Both are volunteers on the board of Procedi and at the same time members of the Evangelisches Jugendwerk (EJW) in Hesse. “It is a pleasure for us to help ensure that children who have no other access to school education attend school regularly,” says Dr. Sven Spieckermann, adding, “And at Procedi we are sure that the donated contributions go directly to where they are urgently needed.”
The initiative of the aid organization Procedi, which has been in existence for 22 years, emerged from the Evangelisches Jugendwerk in 1998. The Procedi project is more than just a school that accompanies children and young people in a poor district on their way through school. Procedi is also a contact point for the more than 5,500 residents of the neighborhood. They receive advice on all aspects of their lives, medical and psychological support, and much more.
