Fujitsu Belgium takes action for the charity initiative "The Little Rose Centre" based in Soweto, South Africa.
As The Little Rose Centre depends entirely on donations, Fujitsu Belgium decided to collect funds prior to the Experience Tour: Belgian employees and partners had the opportunity to make a donation. On May 21st 2016, Fujitsu Belgium and the 16 channel partners handed over the contribution to The Little Rose Centre. The Belgian Ambassador in South Africa, Hubert Cooreman, attended Fujitsu’s visit in Soweto.
“Fujitsu makes it an honour-cause to always associate Corporate Social Responsibility in its actions. When the Belgian branch decided, a year ago, to launch their partners’ incentive campaign in South Africa, it was clear that they would include a social cause in the program” explained Yves de Beauregard, the Managing Director of Fujitsu.
Fujitsu’s Corporate Social Responsablity program covers 5 main areas : Environment, Community involvement, Diversity & Inclusion, Wellbeing and Operating practices.

The Little Rose Centre
is situated in Kliptown, one of the poorest communities of Soweto/Johannesburg estimated to have approximately 35 000 inhabitants. Due to poverty and often unacceptable living conditions, the community faces many challenges, the most pressing of which are high unemployment (estimated to be at 70%), crime and HIV/Aids.
Today, the Centre accommodates approximately 140 children. 80 children belong to the Crèche (age 1 to 6). Twenty have found shelter at the Centre, others come in the mornings and after school for meals, home work assistance and leisure time activities. The Little Rose Centre reaches out to about 150 needy adults that benefit from small job opportunities , feeding schemes and workshops.
The Little Rose Centre is entirely run by committed volunteers of the Kliptown Community.
