Business by itself is by definition a social activity. But under the term social entrepreneurship we mean more than striving for profit and continuity. It also means freeing money / resources and / or time for activities that make a positive contribution to our society. Wire Furniture has chosen to support some five projects financially. Wire Furniture BV contributes to the current developments within the PSV water polo! In consultation with PSV water polo, a creative form of sponsorship has been chosen. Members bring potential customers into contact with Wire Furniture. Some of the possible revenue generated from these contacts goes back to PSV Water Polo. This way you as an association can influence your sponsorship contribution. The first sponsorships are already in for PSV water polo.
A win-win situation for both partners
- Stichting Ashleigh’s place, South Africa
The foundation of Ashleigh's place South Africa, shortly Apsa, is a foundation aimed at giving back to disadvantaged children in South Africa. The current project that requires much help is to build an orphanage, a warm home, for six children. In the township New Rest, located on the road between Wellington and Paarl, three of these orphanages have already been realized. These children not only give them home security but they also get the opportunity to go to school, giving them a better chance of their future.
By varying the ages of the children between zero and eight years, they try to create a family situation. A "mother" is also appointed responsible for the home. She lives with the children in this house. Because of the very short lines of the organization, every euro is spent on the children. Apsa works with Marietjie Bezuidenhout, a South African social worker, who lives in Wellington. Marietjie around NorSa, a umbrella organization who supervised the project locally.
Wire Furniture provides financial support to APSA.
- Youth water polo association Argo, Sint Oedenrode
In 1968, the first successes were swamped by the Argo swimming association. Then still in the outdoor swimming pool in the neighborhood "De Kienehoef". Unfortunately, there is no longer an outdoor swimming pool, but an indoor swimming pool, "De Neul" Swimming pool. Swim Association Argo currently has approximately 225 members, of which a large group participates in racing swimming and water polo rides in the region. Argo also offers space for swimmers who are not performance-oriented. For them recreational matches are organized. The fact that the game item is not completely missing here makes it possible to guess. Also, the master swimming from 21 years at Argo is very popular. In order to maintain such an association, many volunteers and sponsors are required. For example, Argo knows a water polo and swimming committee next to a board. These committees serve the interests of the water polo and swimming department respectively. There is also youth management, ensuring that all kinds of activities are organized for youth.
Wire Furniture has provided the water polo caps for the youth.
