We turn words into deeds! Together with our employees, we are involved in lots of smaller and bigger social projects around the world.
For our social projects, we prefer to engage locally, directly in the regions of our sites. We can take an active part in the processes while providing sustainable support and long-term benefits to the people living here.
We have decided to support the work of "German Cleft Children's Aid Association", especially in Vietnam, as we have a special connection to this country through our economic commitment and our newly built factory (2020). We chose this project because it not only gives cleft children access to safe, high-quality and comprehensive treatment, but also gives them the chance of social acceptance, a "normal" childhood and the chance to attend school. In this way, we can give the children a smile again and the prospect of a better life.German Cleft Children's Aid Association
We support a project for disadvantaged children in Northern Bangladesh. Bangladesh is a country of potential: Over 160 million people live in Bangladesh. Even its economy is developing positively during the last years, yet 2.6 million children have not any access to education. On average, young people at public schools hardly learn to read and write properly. Especially the Northern region is neglected. The poorest regions of the country are at the border to Assam/India where the infrastructure is insufficient, flood control lacking and education is poorly available.
We fully support Childaid Network. This is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing good quality education for deprived children in this region. With the latest Childaid Network project in Bangladesh
The school project will be funded 2019-2022 with a total of 666.667 Euros. Every Euro from Childaid Network is hereby quadrupled by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development.
In celebration of the 175 years jubilee of the Wendler company (2018) we have contributed € 17.500 to this school project in Bangladesh. Hereby we want to support the access to education for children who, through more knowledge and skills, have better life perspectives. Below you can download the latest project report.

In the winter time, the north of the country may have temperatures of zero degrees. A house costs around $1,500, including a water pump and separate toilet. This is almost unaffordably expensive for workers. The housing project is around five hours away from Dhaka and is actively supported by Wendler Bangladesh.
We were able to support a hospital in Bangladesh by collecting glasses for the patients. The chairman of one of our partner companies, Mr Faruk-al-Nasir of Shanin Clothing Ltd., is a long-time advocate of the hospital and he inspired us to take part in this project.
In Indonesia we supported the construction of a student residence with a donation. The residence was built by Serikat Maria Monfort (SMM), a Catholic community.
