In 2021, for the eleventh time in a row, a Freudenberg summer camp was held at the primary school in Sichuan. More than 70 employees and volunteers created an unforgettable summer for 150 children. The curriculum included astronomy, geography, history, marine biology, art and philosophy. Even before the e² initiative, the partnership began with a project especially close to the hearts of Freudenberg employees: the rebuilding of the school after an earthquake in the region in 2008.
In 2021, a second school project was added, this time in the village of Guyong in Guangxi, about 1,500 kilometers southeast of Sichuan. In mid-October, the employees of Freudenberg Apollo Filtration Technologies joined school and government officials in dedicating the Apollo Hope primary school. The financial support from Freudenberg Apollo Filtration Technologies funded the construction of a new auditorium, library and restroom facility and the installation of a new drinking water system, all of which significantly improved the school’s learning environment.
