AGO AG initiate non-profit association goals4kids e.V.
- Patronage by Dr. Karl Theodor zu Guttenberg and Helen Zille
- Goals ensure educational sponsorship for deprived kids
- All administrative costs borne by AGO AG
- First project starts at FIFA World Cup 2010
Kulmbach, 8 June 2010: AGO AG Energie + Anlagen have initiated the non-profit association goals4kids. The aim of this commitment is to sponsor and support kids growing up in humble circumstances. Priority is given to education since education is the key to solving problems and thus providing for a future.
The project’s patronages were assumed by the German Defence Minister Dr. Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg and the Premier of the Western Cape (South Africa) Helen Zille. The first goodwill ambassador is Karl Matthäus Schmidt, speaker of the Board of Quirin Bank AG. ”That demonstrates the far-reaching support of the association founded. A child miseducated is a child lost. We as a company consider this quote by the USA’s former President John F. Kennedy a social responsibility. All administrative costs are fully borne by AGO AG“, says Hans Ulrich Gruber, BOD of the association goals4kids e.V. and CEO of AGO AG Energie + Anlagen.
The association’s current projects are called goals4southafrica and goals4germany. For each goal scored by the German Male National Team during the FIFA world cup in 2010 or the German Female National Team during the FIFA world cup in 2011, goals4kids will assume an educational sponsorship for one child from the country in which the tournament takes place. Also the competition between the German male and female players will hopefully result in as many goals as possible. In addition, there will be new goals set up on South African and German football grounds for each goal scored.
„Further companies, institutions and private people are called on to join the project goals4kids by assuming sponsorships or subscribing money. As a partner of the initiative you would demonstrate that the sponsorship of children is a matter of the heart to you and that you’re interested in the children’s future and development”, says Gruber.
The more people and companies join the project, the more kids can be supported. Please find further information on goals4kids under
