As a company, social responsibility is particularly important to us. We - baramundi software AG - therefore regard it as a matter of course to support our region and our fellow human beings in a variety of ways.
The promotion of local sports clubs, donations for social projects and active support for children and young people are the ideal opportunity for us as a medium-sized company to actively contribute to a better future and fair cooperation.
We, as a company, see it as our task to communicate our corporate values to the outside world and therefore attach great importance to trusting and positive dealings with our employees, customers, partners and service providers.
We would be happy to give you a brief overview of what the whole thing looks like in practice.
Against discrimination of any kind: The non-profit foundation in Safe Hands e.V. was founded in September 2015 by FCA goalkeeper Andreas Luthe together with his former team-mate at VfL Bochum, Jonas Ermes. The core idea of the foundation is to use football to assume social responsibility. Since April 2017, the "Fremd wird Freund" project has been running here in cooperation with FC Augsburg. Every Thursday, iSH offers open football training sessions in Oberhausen and Haunstetten for children between the ages of 8 and 12, in which children of all origins are brought together to teach them common values such as respect, tolerance and fair play through football. Values that are also very important at baramundi. For this reason, baramundi attached particular importance to making a contribution here. In addition, baramundi released its advertising space on the sleeve of FC Augsburg for the integration match day of the Bundesliga. In the match against Werder Bremen, the logo of the FCA goalkeeper Andreas Luthe, In safe hands e.V. aid organisation adorned the jersey instead.
True joy is the joy of the other: True to this motto of the French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, baramundi software AG also donated to the SOS Children's Village in Augsburg instead of sending Christmas presents to business partners. The SOS Children's Village Augsburg accommodates young refugees who have arrived in Germany without parents in a housing project. The aim is to prepare them for an independent and responsible life in Germany, to support them in their future planning and to accompany the young people in coping with their traumatic experiences.
We love it when it works: "baramundi brings movement" is not only the motto, but also the programme: Every year, numerous sporty baramundians take part in the Augsburg M-net company run. This not only benefits the fitness of our employees, but also supports a charitable project every year.
Always on the ball with the promotion of young basketball talent: Together with the clubs "TSV Schwaben Augsburg" and "BG Leitershofen/Stadtbergen", baramundi founded a youth cooperation of the basketball clubs "baramundi Basketball Akademie" in 2017. The U16 Junior Bundesliga (JBBL) and the U14 Bayernligamnschaft in the Augsburg region are organised in this academy.
Blue-White for Red-Green-White: As true local patriots, the baramundians also support Augsburg's Bundesliga soccer team FCA. We are at home in Augsburg and share the values of FCA. The first division team has a clear philosophy, works professionally and grows organically. We would like to accompany the club on its way and are proud of its development.
baramundi is also enthusiastic about beach volleyball: baramundi software AG is supporting the DJK-Augsburg-Hochzoll in hosting the Bavarian Beach Volleyball Championship on Augsburg's Rathausplatz. In addition to the official tournaments, many baramundians also use the opportunity to feel the sand under their feet during the sponsored game.
For us, it is not just our own baramundi culture that counts: we are also committed to numerous other social, sporting and cultural projects in and around Augsburg. It is therefore a special honour for us to support an Augsburg institution such as the Congress am Park with hall sponsoring.
