Since several years, Hilti Foundation has supported us with setting up teaching libraries in Mongolia and Cambodia. Now, Hilti Great Great Britain decided to partner with BOOKBRIDGE on a long-term basis.
Hilti has collected more than 3,500 books from their Manchester head office, training centre and the 21 Hilti Centres loacted throughout Great Britain. Many Hilti employees helped us sort and load the books before they were shipped to Cambodia. Additionally, five talented and dedicated Hilti Great Britain team members will join our Capability Program and co-develop the Social Business Model for our next learning centre in Cambodia.
We hope that the partnership will last for many years and that we can develop and work closely together. Besides the tools that help us to set up and maintain our learning centres, besides the books that fill up the shelves and the money we generate through the Capability Program, it is the Hilti people that really touch us. The people we have worked with were so interested and engaged in the themes of inequality and social business that we were blown away. They were not interested a bit in doing marketing here and a little greenwashing there. They were willing to roll up their sleeves, get properly involved and really add something to make this world a little better.
Thank you so much!!
