We actively support the community and educational, sports and cultural programs.
We also support a variety of charity programs, in particular those that are based on education.
ASJ Scholarship, Gaza
The ASJ Scholarship coordinators and students send Kolmar a heartfelt ‘Thank You’ for supporting the needy and marginalized women students in Gaza through providing the Kolmar Scholarship Program. Kolmar’s generous financial support has clearly reflected on the success and well-being of the students as it allowed them to focus on their academic performance, and to avoid any possible distracting financial pressure that they or their families would have faced otherwise. The Scholarship’s support of students’ extracurricular activities (such as the semester-end gatherings, the English Club and the graduation ceremonies) provides a unique bond among the Kolmarians who share fun memories and positive experiences, resulting in long-term friendships lasting beyond the completion of their studies.
St Mary Goreti School, Tanzania
Kolmar is sponsoring the secondary education of two young girls in Tanzania so they can have a brighter future and to help them on the way to making their dreams come true. The aim of the school is to raise the education level of girls in Tanzania. By helping these students, Kolmar is not only changing the girls’ lives, but also making a meaningful contribution to the empowerment of women in Tanzania.
Lucerne Symphony Orchestra Projects, Switzerland
Kolmar is sponsoring music workshops for school classes and concert programs for children so they can experience music from a young age. Kolmar is also sponsoring projects to bring music to people who are older or unable to attend concerts in a concert hall, and helping people needing special assistance to attend concerts, so they can experience the joy of music.
Il Papavero, Italy
Kolmar continues to support the educational charity Il Papavero in Ferrara, Italy. The charity helps children with learning difficulties by giving them extra tuition in subjects such as Italian and maths outside of school hours. Learning Italian in particular is very important for emigrant children so they can become integrated.
