At the age of eleven, I started driving a real car. Then it was a bit challenging to reach down to the pedals, there were a lot of pillows behind the back and so on, laughs Eddie.

Having a wider perspective and the will to see beyond our own business is another cornerstone that has been with us since the early 1990s. Now as then, an important part of Axelent’s CSR work is to be a committed and positive force in the communities in which the business units operate. In doing so, they feel a social responsibility for people who are worse off and, for various reasons, not as fortunate. Charity work can take the form of various charitable projects or sponsorship of the arts, sports and education. A commitment that has been around for a long time is the support for the DGSS orphanage in Egypt, a place where children with needs get a chance to escape poverty and a life on the street.
There are currently 44 children living in the orphanage. The children come from all over Egypt, several from the part of Egypt that borders Sudan. At the orphanage, the children live in small apartments. Currently there are seven apartments with about six children in each. In each apartment there is a "mother" or "father". These "mothers" and "fathers" have a very important function as they must try to shoulder the role of being a parent. The need for more places is great. The orphanage has the opportunity to complete another apartment, which will happen shortly.
Axelent is sponsoring the foundation "Tappra Barn". The fundraising foundation Tappra Barn aims to collect and donate as much as possible, at least 80% of its annual surplus, to brave children in need.
