Social responsibility, Hjort Knudsen believes, is foremost shown by creating work opportunities.
Furthermore Hjort Knudsen donates to “Børns vilkår” in Denmark and particularly a major amount to SOS Children’s Villages in the countries of our production facilities. The donation is equally divided between Children’s Villages in Siedlce (70,000 inhabitants) in eastern Poland and Children’s Villages in Brovary (80,000 inhabitants) 20 km from Kiew In Ukraine. By this we hope to support a positive development in children growing up as orphans.
In the Children’s Villages the children share a house with their “siblings” and their “mother”, they get schooling, and are helped on as young adults to get an education and stand on their own two feet.
