We support passion projects. With “Alături de voi” .
Social responsibility is for Serapis IFM an area in which we frequently invest and results are never far away. When you know that even equipment and consumables for our company generates an added value for our disadvantaged fellows, satisfaction becomes even greater.
Serapis IFM and “Alături de voi” Foundation work together successfully for several years and, through procurement of working equipment and other goods sold through social enterprises, we managed, together, to change the lives of over 150,000 people in poor communities in Romania.
These disadvantaged young people that join the family of ADV (Alături de voi) Youth Club, develop professional, intellectual and emotional skills through UtilDeco workshops. After that, with an integrated package of social services and with the help of the JobDirect agency, they find a job in social enterprises or other domains, and so they are integrated into the community, proving that there are no differences between people but different perceptions.
We are proud to use equipments and supplies manufactured to the highest standards by young people with disabilities, coming from orphanages or affected by other social problems. By this we prove that social responsibility creates unit and the unit generates good changes.
