Delta Foundation - 15 years of humanity
In 2022, the Delta Foundation celebrates its 15th anniversary.
On November 5, 2007, the Delta Holding company founded the Delta Foundation as the first corporate foundation in this area with the aim of providing support to the development of the social community in which it operates.
With the launch of the Delta Foundation, the goal of restoring the tradition of endowment in Serbia was set. Delta's first endowment - Sunce, a day care center for children and youth with disabilities - was built in 2012 and donated to the city of Belgrade. Today, this facility is used by 126 people with disabilities, they have a quality all-day stay, work with experts and participate in creative workshops.
The second endowment was presented to the city of Kragujevac in 2016 - the Sports Rehabilitation Center for People with Disabilities, "Iskra", a unique facility in Serbia and the region, adapted to all forms of disability, which provides users with the opportunity to strengthen physically and mentally and to realize their full potential.
On the 10th anniversary of the Delta Foundation, the city of Belgrade was presented with the sculpture "Odande Dovde" by the famous sculptors Mrđan Bajić and Richard Deacon, with the aim of decorating the footbridge from Kalemegdan to the Sava pier.
In order for the aid to be sustainable, the work of the Delta Foundation is focused to a significant extent on the areas in which the company has the most knowledge, namely agriculture. Through the "Seeds for the Future" project, 14 associations and organizations engaged in agricultural production according to the principles of social entrepreneurship were supported, while through the "Our Village" project, 3 villages were included in which the development of agricultural production and the general quality of life in the countryside were supported.
The Delta Foundation also focuses on young people, so through the "Fund for the Future" project, it provided scholarships to 337 high school students and 31 students, and beyond the project, students from agricultural schools and colleges, with the desire to stay on their farms and thus strengthen the Serbian countryside. .
Through the "Third Parents" project, employees of Delta Holding personally help 51 children in socially vulnerable families. Colleagues help with gifts, but even more with human relations and friendly support.
Special attention in the past 15 years has been devoted to improving the quality of life of people with disabilities. Through the work practice program, the Delta Foundation influenced the education and employment of people with disabilities, while at the same time it supported associations and events of people with disabilities.
In many actions, the foundation supported religious and cultural institutions, participated in the production of films and the recording of compositions.
By the end of 2021, 39.1 million euros were invested in the social community and more than 757,324 citizens of Serbia were helped.
Delta Foundation will continue to provide assistance to those in need.
