You tackle instead of watching, do not put your own well-being above the other and take responsibility. Does this description apply to you or someone you know? This is your chance to tell us your personal story!
We are not looking for the next Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela or Martin Luther King Jr. but everyday heroes in our midst. People who do something good for others and stand up for people whose voice is not or only rarely heard.
With the founding of Buckle & Seam, Marco and Georg, our founders, decided to set up more than just a company. The fundamental right to education for everyone is at the center of our work, the goal is clear: send as many children as possible to school through your help.
Our schools are made of many individual bricks. Without the cohesion of the individual components, the whole would not be able to stand. Brick by brick, step by step. The small deeds are just as important as the big ones.
Don't worry, we don't expect you to have built a school yourself, rather we want to work with our community to lay a foundation of good deeds to show that we can achieve more together. The Buckle & Seam (imp) ACT Award arose from the drive to reward people from our community for their social commitment, to share their stories and to inspire other people to do good.
We fight for the fundamental right of education for all.
263 million children worldwide have no access to education. That motivated us to found Buckle & Seam. We want change and make sure that children can go to school. While our founders lived and worked in Pakistan, they were faced with one challenge every day - that the people they worked with had little or no reading or writing.
Since our foundation in 2016, we have invested 3% of our net revenue in initiatives and school projects in Pakistan, where our products are made. We enable children - especially girls - to go to school. According to Unicef, only 59% of the population in Pakistan can read or write their own names. More than 30% less than in Germany.
