The social commitment of PPO Foundation
The PPO Foundation was set up in 2006 and is supporting workers and their families in the production areas. The foundation is helping to lift up the general standards according to particular needs in the different countries/areas like improving schooling infrastructures, teaching skills to foreign workers, enabling children to go to school as well as hygienic and health related improvements. Projects in South Africa, Morocco, Israel and Spain have been already supported. PPO Foundation completed recently a project together with a strawberry producer in southern Spain. The Project includes a language- and communication centre for foreign workers for a better integration and the possibility to communicate with their families at home. This course is very much appreciated by the workers. The possibility to achieve an official certificate is an additional motivation to them.
