GUATEMALA: Henkel’s Make an Impact on Tomorrow (MIT) initiative, which supports the volunteer work of Henkel employees and retirees, is celebrating its 10th anniversary. To date, more than 5000 Henkel volunteers have been involved in 7000 projects in more than 110 countries.
To mark the anniversary, Henkel provided special funding of more than $120,000 to the “HELPS Changing Lives” project in Guatemala. With the subsidy and the active support of a local MIT team will now help 120 families in areas such as improvement of infrastructure, access to educational and health facilities and training on how to cultivate grain.
As a U.S. aid organization, HELPS International has been initiating self-help programs since 1984. It aims are to increase freedom, stability and personal opportunities for the indigenous people in Latin America and lastingly reducing poverty.
