Valmet long-term social responsibility program has three key themes: “Equal opportunities for wellbeing”, “Towards the future with science” and “Protecting the planet for next generations”.
As part of the program, Valmet supports Save the Children's Child Sensitive Social Protection project in Dungarpur, India. The objectives of this project are to increase school attendance and retention, reduce child poverty, improve care for orphans and other vulnerable children, and reduce child labor and malnutrition.
The Save the Children project’s location is also well matched with Valmet’s operations in India. Valmet has more than 300 employees in India, working in Chennai, Gurugam, Mumbai, Pune, Vadodara and Kolkata, as well as an active customer base and supplier network. Valmet aims to make positive impacts on the area by providing long-term support for the education and wellbeing of Dungarpur’s children.
The project, which already has a good track record of accomplished improvements, will reach a total of 24,000 children and adults.
