Social commitment is a matter of course for the Dücker Group and its employees, but unfortunately that does not apply for the whole world. This is why the Dücker family and the DÜCKER GROUP are very committed in the social field.
As one of several examples of their activities we would like to mention only one project in India. Being in close contact with an Indian father, the Dücker family and the DÜCKER GROUP support a couple of projects initiated by CMI, the “Carmelites of Mary Immaculate”.
This fraternity builds and operates boarding schools, hospitals and orphanages in the North of India. Without this support, the children – irrespective of their belief – would not have the possibility of receiving any education. In addition, self-help groups and institutions are supported where young women are trained to given them the opportunity to add something to their family income.
Break new ground
The DÜCKER GROUP does not only focus on social activities all over the world. Local projects in Langenfeld are also supported.
During the Christmas tombola the DÜCKER GROUP trainees collected 500, - €. Thanks to this amount the foundation for an alpaca project in the St. Martinus hospital in Langenfeld was laid. The friend’s association of the hospital increased the amount to 1.500, - €.
The Alpaca project is a pet therapy that supports the geriatric division of the St. Martinus hospital. Every 14 days the elderlies can touch and feed the Alpacas.
