Heading towards a sustainable future
We are involved in various projects. These projects are central to the goals we stand for to make the world a bit more beautiful than it already is. See below which charities we support.
W. A. BLIJDORP WATER PROJECT
H.B.E (Hasal Babs Ent) is a waste management company in Accra Ghana in the western part of Africa. It was started in the year 2000 by Rashid Janlu with financial assistance from Mr. Blijdorp of B&S Group from the Netherlands with the sole objective of improving access to hygienic sanitation by implementation and construction of Projects in low income communities in Accra Ghana.
Mr. W. A. Blijdorp has financed the projects which is being used by thousands of people at Sabon Zongo Accra, Taifa and Lebanon in Ashaiman and the W. A. Water project in Ashaiman. Apart from the sanitation problem in these low income communities is also access to clean drinking water a problem. H. B. E in partnership with S. S. G. L ( Safi Sana Ghana Limited) turns the fecal waste from the H. B. E. Public washrooms into renewable energy and the rest product into fertilizer for the local farmers. What a way to go! A vacuum sewage truck was shipped from The Netherlands to Ghana and one was purchased in Ghana. It is being used for the transportation of fecal waste from the sites of H. B. E to the biogas plant of S.S.G.L. Availability of fresh drinking water is a fundamental problem faced by the people from these communities. H. B. E is planning to install more of these water treatment plants for the production of clean water for these low income communities.
ORANGE BABIES PROJECT
Orange Babies strives for an HIV-free generation. For more than 20 years they have supported the most vulnerable women and children who (in)directly suffer from the consequences of the HIV epidemic. Orange Babies is active in Namibia, South Africa and Zambia, where the infection rate is very high while aid is scarce. B&S believes in developing reliable long-term solutions and that is why B&S is a proud supporter of Orange Babies educational programs. Orange Babies supports pregnant women on the one hand to bring their children into the world HIV-free, but on the other hand they also focus on the further development of these children to keep them HIV-free. The education sector has a special place in the response to the HIV epidemic because it not only helps form the thinking of the next generation, especially addressing stigma and prevention, but also increases their chances on higher education, leading to more possibilities within the labor market, which reduces the risk of HIV infection. Most children depend on nutritious meals they receive at school. This is also an important factor in the fight against HIV, as the HIV-inhibiting medication does not work well on an empty stomach.
This is why Orange Babies makes education a priority!
