WE GET INVOLVED
Driven by Solutions
BAS GETS INVOLVED
At BAS we demand a lot of ourselves. We want to be the best at everything we do both for our customers and for our workers. But we can only achieve this with the best people, the most innovative services and the best IT systems which we are investing in all the time. We give an account of all that we do for people and the environment and the society at large that we too form part of. BAS gets involved.
BECAUSE OUR CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE
At BAS we support a great number of initiatives and activities that demonstrate our social responsibility. We pay particular attention to young people. After all, providing the next generation with the best chance in life is the precursor to making a better world. So at BAS, putting our money where our mouth is, we have set up BAS Fonds. For every vehicle we sell, 10 euros goes to the fund. This enables us to support national and international foundations committed to supporting the wellbeing of underprivileged young people.
IN EVERYTHING WE DO WE HAVE AN EYE TO THE FUTURE
WE SUPPORT THE FOLLOWING FOUNDATIONS WITH MONEY FROM BAS FUND:
Stichting Bogota Zonder Honger
In Colombia many people live on or below the poverty line and many of these are children living in Bogota, the capital city. The Stichting Bogota Zonder Honger ensures that these children have at least one warm meal a day and is trying to provide them with reception and activities.
Stichting Niños Unidos Peruanos
Stichting Niños Unidos Peruanos is dedicated to caring for severely neglected children in and around Cusco, the old capital city of the Incas in the Peruvian Andes. The foundation is looking to give back to the chances that were taken from them or denied them because they have the right to be able to lead a useful life, the right to respect and the right to being valued as a person.
Stichting Het Vergeten Kind
Children in the Netherlands are amongst the happiest children in the world, as a recent WHO Report makes clear. This, however, does not apply to all the children in our country. Children who are victims of neglect or abuse carry that with them for the rest of their lives. Stichting Het Vergeten Kind campaigns for a country where every child feels they really are a child that can develop well and play a fully active role in society. .
BAS supports Oxfam Novib’s microfinancing programme called “Ondernemers voor Ondernemers” [= Entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs]. This programme offers people in development countries the chance to set up their own business with a small amount of credit and in this way improve their future prospects.
