Fundraising activities for Just a Drop projects

The Just a Drop projects in India and Kenya supported by BAC are making good progress. In the Kyeni Primary school they finished with the construction of the rain harvesting tank. In Kudo they drilled the community borehole and provided the water storage tank of 40.000 liters. They started with the construction of a check dam, which will reduce the risk of the water supply going dry during upcoming droughts. So-called WASH trainings are ongoing with regard to water, sanitation and hygiene.

All BAC employees around the world are organizing fundraising activities to fund all the needed works for our 3 selected Just a Drop projects: Kyeni Primary School (Kenya), Kudo Village (India) and El Roblar (Nicaragua). Very creative activities to raise money are popping up in our BAC factories and offices: Car wash, raffles, World Cup bidding, second-hand sales, selling of water bottles and sustainable vegetable /fruit bags, fund raising dinners supported by local restaurant, donations,…

At BAC we are all committed to contributing to the availability of clean and safe water to communities worldwide. As a leading company in the development of evaporative cooling products, we believe that water is at the core of sustainable cooling and development.

re-using plastic via hand-crafts, cleaning rubbish from river banks or coming to work on your bike or on foot instead of with your car. Join us!

BAC raises money for diabetes awareness

It is estimated that by 2030 in Belgium alone 1 in 10 people will have diabetes, that’s over 1 million people. Through participating in the Climbing for Life-weekend BAC helps to raise awareness for diabetes. The subscription fees were paid by BAC and early September 76 colleagues and partners from Belgium, Italy, Australia, China and the US took part in the Climbing for Life event held in the town of Gérardmer, located in the Vosges (France).

Together with over 3000 people nearly 95.000 euro was raised for diabetes by walking, running and biking across the “Balloons and Trails” of this mountain range. Those who participated were unanimous: “A wonderful weekend of sportive achievements and collegial togetherness. Not even the rainy weather could put a damper on it!”

This initiative fits well with BAC’s commitment to create a caring and safe environment for our people and our communities; which is one of our five sustainability goals.

And our commitment reached further than the Climbing for Life-weekend. Over the summer BAC employees organized various actions (a carwash, a bake sale, a salsa-workshop, a spinning class,…) to raise money for Kampka-D.

This non-profit organization offers summer camps to children with diabetes. The raised sum was doubled by BAC management and Don Fetzer (BAC president) along with David Jacobs (Managing Director EMEA) handed over the cheque to the Kampka-D representatives.
