with young people accounting for 1.8 billion. In the countries
in which Sika is active, its strategic focus is on helping people

SUPPORTING EDUCATION

Attending school is far more difficult for children and young people facing poverty and deprivation. UNICEF estimates that 300 million children do not go to school at all. Sika contributes towards equal opportunities and supports a variety of training and education initiatives, including the establishment of school libraries in China, “ProjeKt Inspire” in Tanzania which opens up career opportunities for the younger generation, and the focus on helping reintegrate people with disabilities into the workforce in France.

SAFEGUARDING LIVING ENVIRONMENTS

Worldwide, three out of ten people live in homes with no access to clean drinking water. However, shaping your own future, is only possible if safe drinking water, adequate sanitation and hygiene, and a sound environment are available.
Sika’s commitment in this area is structured primarily around water and renewable energy projects. The company has supported the Global Nature Fund (GNF) and its Living Lakes environmental program since 2004.
