e² is designed to help improve the environment and enhance educational opportunities around the world. An added benefit of this program is that Freudenberg employees can engage in volunteerism to see firsthand the impact of e².
Alvarez has volunteered at NEEDED with her fellow Freudenberg colleagues and says being around the girls there has impacted her in ways she never would have anticipated.
“You realize that maybe you are thinking you have problems but when you go to these institutions and see what the problems are and see the faces of the children and they have a positive attitude, it changes your mindset to be a better person,” said Alvarez.
Throughout 2023, Freudenberg employees from various Business Groups in Mexico will continue to meet monthly with the adolescents at NEEDED as part of this sustainability education program. During those sessions, they will share information about alternative energy solutions, promote financial literacy, discuss entrepreneurship, and share ways we can all be more sustainable.
We are infinitely grateful for your support and trust.
Luis Zeckua Ramos, Managing Director, NEEDED Instituto de Rehabilitación al Maltrato de Menores.
