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.
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
