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
I would like to say a deeply heartfelt thank you for supporting the needy and marginalized women students in Gaza, Palestine through providing the Kolmar Scholarship Program. Your generous financial support has clearly reflected on the well-being of the students and 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) provide a unique atmosphere among the Kolmarians who share fun memories and positive experiences, and this is what makes them passionately attached to Kolmar.
St Mary Goreti School, Tanzania
Kolmar is sponsoring the secondary education of three 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.
Luzerner Sinfonieorchester Music Workshops, Switzerland
Kolmar sponsored a music workshop organised by the Luzerner Sinfonieorchester at a school for disabled children in the Zug region. The workshop gave the children the chance to get out of their usual environment and experiment with everyday objects to discover more about making music or rhythmic sounds. At the end of the workshop, the children took part in a concert with members of the Luzerner Sinfonieorchester, to which their friends and families were invited. It was a happy and joyful occasion, and a great way to introduce children to the wonderful world 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 migrant children so they can become integrated.
