HEIDELBERG, July 24, 2018 – In cooperation with the Sauti Kuu Foundation, SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE has supported the construction of a new sports and vocational training center for children in need, young people and families in Alego, Kenya. After three years of construction work, the inauguration ceremony of the Sauti Kuu Sports, Resource and Vocation Training Center has now taken place. Among the guests at the inauguration ceremony was former US President Barack Obama. On July 17, Dr. Andreas Schneider-Neureither was elected as a new board member of the Sauti Kuu Foundation.
SNP supported the construction of a basketball court. It is a perfect complement to the sports and vocational training center and offers children and families living in the area a safe place for sports activities and social interaction.
The founder of the Sauti Kuu Foundation, Dr. Auma Obama, emphasized: "I am very happy that we can finally open this center after three years of hard work. I would like to thank the Sauti Kuu family, our supporters, partners, donors and the local community for their support and faith in our work."
"Social commitment has always been an integral part of SNP's values. Through our involvement in the foundation, we can convey this message to our important US market. I have a personal connection to this project and am very proud that SNP could contribute to improving the living conditions of children and families in Kenya," said Dr. Andreas Schneider-Neureither, CEO of SNP, during the ceremony.
The aim of the foundation is to give disadvantaged children and young people worldwide perspectives to lead an independent life and to help them recognize their own potential.
