LGI supports schoolchildren project
BONDORF. LGI Logististics Group International GmbH supports the campaign “Your Day for Africa”. For the nationwide campaign of the non-profit association “Aktion Tagwerk”, schoolchildren work in the company and donate their daily wages. The tewelve year-old Benjamin Scholl attends school in Ehningen and supported LGI’s site in Bondorf for one day.
His educational institution takes part in the “Aktion Tagwerk” every year. The pupils look for a company where they can help out for a day once a year. Benjamin quickly opted for the logistics company LGI this school year. His Mother and grandmother work for the logistics company in Bondorf.
On Monday, 15 th July, the sixth-grader actively supportet the location. He got to know logistics better and, for example, transferred delivery notes to the customers’s database. All in all, Benjamin gained an insight into five different companies during his last school days. Last year, he spent a day in a roofing company. “Hopefully, his work in companies will help Benjamin to make the right choice later,” says Ksenija Schieler, training coordinator at LGI in Bondorf.
After his one-day assignment, the student can also imagine an apprenticeship at LGI. “We want to continue participating in the project in the future to give students an insight into the world of logistics,” said training manager Katalin Bayer. “In this way, we want to show pupils what our industry has to offer and at the same time do something good. Other companies are also taking part in the “Your Day for Africa” campaign. The nationwide campaign is intended for students of all ages and school types.
All wages go directly to various educational projects. The children and young people in Germany actively support peers in African countries with their commitment.
