L.I.T. SUPPORTS ELVIS AG‘S DONATION CAMPAIGN

While it is absolutely normal for children to attend primary school in Germany, the situation in other countries is more difficult. In East African Tanzania, for example, there are only 18 public primary schools for a total of 25,792 children. The problem is exacerbated by the fact that many buildings are dilapidated and inadequately equipped, in addition to having only poor sanitary facilities and too few desks and books. Making matters worse, there is also a shortage of teaching staff.

One example is the Kagonda primary school in the Izigo region. 479 children go to school there and, of these, 78 have physical or mental disabilities. With only eight classrooms, which are not equipped for the disabled, the conditions are more than bad. Still to be added, there are only 152 desks for learning. To improve the situation and make it easier for boys and girls to have access to school education, the European Cargo Association of International Freight Forwarders (ELVIS) is collecting donations for this primary school in its campaign this year.

»In Tanzania by no means all residents have access to educational institutions - and those available are often inadequately equipped.«

Three handicapped-accessible classrooms are being planned, each with 60 desks and six bookshelves. Apart from the construction measures, the programme also includes training for the school committee and the local teachers. They should be sensitised for the matter of child protection. As a sustainable transport and logistics company, we are dedicated to assuming social responsibility, which is why we are once again supporting the campaign this year. »In Tanzania by no means all residents have access to educational institutions – and those available are often inadequately equipped«, explains Fokke Fels, Chief Executive of L.I.T. AG the background.

The project, which was financed with our donations and those of other ELVIS members last year, has just been successfully completed. In Tanzania, a maternity ward has been set up to improve the health care of women and newborns. At the same time, qualified specialists informed the locals about topics such as family planning and how to take care of newborns‘ health.
