Palsgaard to sponsor BØRNEfonden – ChildFund Denmark projects in Benin

    Monday, February 13, 2012, Mette Dal Steffensen


    Palsgaard is pleased to announce that the company has entered into a cooperation with Danish sponsor organization BØRNEfonden and is to donate DKK 50,000 per year to specific projects organised by BØRNEfonden for the coming years. 

    The DKK 50,000 sponsored in 2012 are going to finance two projects in Benin:

    • The purchase of a boat for the staff and the pupils of the schools in the Kessounou area in Benin so that they may cross the river Oueme safely on the way to and from school without the risk of crocodile attacks.
    • Construction of water tanks, latrines and urinals for two kindergartens in the villages Laké and Djigbe.

    Health Centre

    In 2011 Palsgaard helped sponsor the Health Centre in Agondokpoé, Benin. The construction of the Health Centre has meant that women in and around Agondokpoé are now able to get advice and guidance on hygiene and on how to maintain a good and nutritious diet, as well as learn how to handle the most common diseases. The Health Centre is already open, and the children are weighed and vaccinated against diseases and are treated for malnutrition when necessary.
