Socially responsible entrepreneurship requires social involvement
Based on this conviction, the Ten Brinke Group founded the Ten Brinke Foundation some years ago. The aim of the foundation: improve the living conditions of people in the poorest countries of the world in a targeted approach for the long term by providing active support.
The Ten Brinke Group regards social involvement as "helping people help themselves"; in other words providing financial support for the construction of training centres, setting up and developing own farm projects, providing microcredits to enable people to make a living - so they can ultimately become self-sufficient.
