96 // Corporate Citizenship Below is an overview of the Help Alliance’s key projects during the reporting year. Haiti Entrepreneurship Camp During the reporting year the Help Alliance supported the first Haiti Entrepreneurship Camp, which took place in the capital Port-au-Prince. The pilot project aims at motivating young people to set up their own businesses and thus to disprove the widely held belief that success depends solely on social origins. Under the motto “driving business – driving future” lectur- ers from around the world – including many Lufthansa employees from different Group companies as well as local non- government organizations and institutions – taught about 30 young Haitian entrepre- neurs between the ages of 24 and 42 business know-how in theory and practice over the course of two weeks. Given last year’s great success, the camp will take place again in 2015. Child Sponsoring Circle India The Help Alliance has been committed to Child Sponsoring Circle India since 2004. This central Indian association maintains 20 boarding schools in Khandwa in the state of Madhya Pradesh. The project’s focus is on 3,000 children from the ostra- cized “untouchables” caste who can be supported by neither their families nor their village communities. At the boarding schools they receive food, shelter, medica- tion and education. Every year, 200 of them graduate from secondary school. In addi- tion, Child Sponsoring Circle has operated a mobile hospital ward since 2008 with support from the Help Alliance and the frequent flyer program Miles & More. “The approach that we can achieve more together than alone has proven itself a resounding success. A big ‘thank you’ to all who have supported us during the past 15 years.” Rita Diop, Chairwoman Help Alliance e.V. Vivian Spohr, the patroness of the Help Alliance, during her visit to boarding schools run by Child Sponsoring Circle India.
