A statement on the cooperation between the Röchling Foundation and the Strahlemann foundation – important to know, nice to hear:
Franz-Josef Fischer, Managing director, Strahlemann foundation.
„Thanks to the sponsoring by the Röchling foundation, we have been able to realize two Talent Companies with ABB –one in Mannheim and one in Walldorf. Thus, we have come a step closer to realizing and proceeding on the Strahlemann vision. Two strong local networks have been developed at the schools: they strengthen the proven concept of apprenticeship in close distance with the metropolitan area.
The teenagers gain better access into working life and have a better chance to find a suitable vocational training. At this phase of the teenagers’ lives – the transition between school and work life – it is an important social responsibility to meet them with appreciation. That is what the Talent Company stands for. The perfect cooperation with sponsors and project members forms the basis for this exemplary project to ensure direct interaction between pupils and companies. Furthermore, the teachers’ great and committed work for our Strahlemann teenagers makes us very happy as they succeed in building up an outstanding connection between pupils and companies.”
