In 2016, PADICO Holding became a corporate sponsor of SOS Children's Villages - Palestine's for its first year by sponsoring the SOS Education for a Better Future Programme, which covers the educational expenses for more than 270 children and youth in SOS' Family Based Care programmes in Bethlehem and Rafah.
“SOS Children's Village offers noble humanitarian services that represents the reality of Palestinian society, especially through supporting orphans and young people to overcome harsh conditions that prevent them from integrating in the community. PADICO Holding supports the “Education for better future” program that is implemented by SOS Children's Villages as it is considered a tool for the development of the society. I praise this programme as it is providing financial support for orphaned and abandoned children with a message that social deprivation and harsh conditions will not overcome their desire to improve their education and knowledge.
PADICO’s support for SOS Children’s Villages illustrates its social responsibility which includes many initiatives and activities aimed at promoting education in Palestine, including offering yearly scholarships for students of Palestinian universities, launching well-known leadership entrepreneurial initiatives in partnership with Palestinian universities, supporting educational funds and providing concrete support for needy students.”
