In 60 years of its existence the Porsche Holding has gained an exceptional reputation in more than 20 countries of the world. Having established itself as a socially responsible company, it continues seeing the implementation of high standards of ethics as its foremost priority.
Since 2008, when Porsche Holding has founded a new company in Ukraine – an official importer of all Volkswagen vehicles (including commercial cars, Audi and SEAT), implementation of its high social standards had begun effective functioning on the territory of Ukraine.
In 2016 “Porsche Ukraine” started its cooperation with a SOS Children’s Villages Ukraine NGO, which later has grown into warm and friendly partnership. This company is always ready to support our programs, readily responds to our requests and never declines in providing assistance. That is why we are very grateful to Porsche Ukraine and appreciate everything they do for us.
Among other things, Porsche Ukraine has opened a workshop for kids in the Children’s Village Brovary and has bought a cleaning tractor for tidying up the territory of the Village. Now it is clean around us in any weather, which makes everybody happy, especially children.
In 2018 together with the National Police and Ukrainian Ministry of Health “Porsche Ukraine” hold a First Aid training and a road traffic safety training for adolescents and their parents.
Now the company enables teenagers from Kyiv and Luhansk regions to attend driving courses. In summer, when the tests are successfully passed, the youngsters will get their driver’s licenses, which presupposes developing new skills, useful in their adult lives.
At the end of 2018 “Porsche Ukraine supported five projects initiated by the SOS Children’s Villages Ukraine that are to be realized in 2019. Notably, the company has allocated some funds for purchasing a climbing gym enhancing the development of kids’ shallow motor skills, as well as buying optical fibers for sensory rooms designed to help children suffering from autism and stress. These are extremely important things for fully-fledged and harmonious children’s development, as well as for their education. Besides, “Porsche Ukraine” has financed speech therapy sessions for the kids from Luhansk region, who developed some speech disorders due to the war conflict in Donbass. “Porsche Ukraine” has facilitated the acquisition of beds for the families where not all the children have separate sleeping places. The company has financed the rehabilitation program for a four-year-old boy with congenital defects, who needed treatment in a specialized medical institution.
