Reliability of these connections is fundamentally crucial and providing more reliable connections than anyone else is our competitive advantage. The concept of ‘Reliable Connections’ is not limited to our products and solutions but extends to the human level as well.

We care about building reliable connections with each other, with our customers and suppliers and with society at large. We passionately care about making the world a more connected place for everyone’s benefit.

      Jacob-Hoeft Foundation – A Time to Give!

      As our business grows, so does our commitment to the community. We believe in action more than words, and our Jacob-Hoeft Foundation embodies this belief. Rooted in Responsibility – one of our core values – the foundation is a testament to our dedication. Every year, we carefully select social projects that could benefit from our support – because real impact matters to us. We focus our efforts on: Encouraging youth welfare and backing volunteer groups and associations.

      • Youth welfare / volunteer groups & association activities.
      • People who are dependent on help due to their physical or social situation
      • Support of care facilities such as nursing and family centers
      • Environmental protection organizations
      • Karlsruhe Association for the Help of Mentally Ill Children and Adolescents e.V.

        At the Karlsruhe Association, they help children and adolescents with mental health challenges transition from hospital to home. Their support covers a range of conditions, including depression, anxiety, ADHD, eating disorders, autism, and schizophrenia.

        Their skilled psychologists provide daily guidance, offering a steady hand as these youngsters reintegrate with daily life.Joining hands with the Karlsruhe Association, we take meaningful steps to ease the daily lives of the youth on their path to mental wellness.

      • Breitengrad e.V.: Dresden-Dakar-Banjul Challenge

        Since 2006, the Dresden-Banjul Organization (DBO) has played a crucial role in transforming Banjul, Gambia. Their significant projects range from constructing hospitals and schools to providing carpentry workshops for the youth.

        This vital work is funded through the auctioning of vehicles that have successfully completed the challenging journey to Banjul. We are proud to support these impactful initiatives and are committed to continuing our efforts to improve the community.

      • LOAN Foundation

        Nestled at an altitude of 1,000 meters, Ban Trang stands as one of the most deprived villages in Northern Vietnam, with its remote location and challenging access. The village is home to 30 school-age children who, until recently, had to journey up to 14 kilometres to attend the nearest kindergarten.

        Thanks to the efforts of the LOAN Foundation, the landscape of Ban Trang has transformed. New school facilities have been built, and the “highland children” are now equipped with books and school materials.

      • Kids Amani

        Kids Amani, a visionary non-profit, empowers communities across Africa by fostering education, aiming to build a broad middle-class and enable learning opportunities for all ages. Through strategic partnerships and university cooperation, they champion equal opportunities and sustainable growth.

        Their commitment extends beyond financial support, focusing on critical needs to construct schools and launch vocational training for sought-after skills. We are delighted to join Kids Amani in shaping a brighter, learned future.

      We guarantee all donated resources are being used for the right purpose.

      For non-local projects, e.g. LOAN Foundation or Kids Amani, a representative from Germany will regularly check and oversee the projects on-site. This is to ensure that donated funds are strictly used for their designated purpose, thereby preventing any potential misuse or corruption.
