A long-standing, wonderful tradition: Truma renounces on presents for customers and business partners at Christmas and donates to a charitable organization instead. This year, Truma is supporting the Schloss Zinneberg child and youth welfare institution in Glonn near Munich. The donation of 10,000 euros will enable six classrooms to be equipped with digital infrastructure, such as high-quality cameras, microphones, headsets and accessories. Schloss Zinneberg includes a special educational home for girls and young ladies, a grammar school and vocational school, an open full-time school as well as a day center for special educational needs.

Endless opportunities

“Thanks to the new IT equipment, we are able to split classes, if required, and transfer the lessons to different rooms or even to the pupils’ homes”, shares sister Christophora, Manager of Schloss Zinneberg, with delight. “What’s more, we are using the new equipment to make practical video tutorials for our pupils.” The digital packages are also used when it comes to extracurricular aspects: “It has allowed us to perform our first consultations online in a therapeutic context.”

Matter close to our hearts

“It is a matter close to our hearts to support local organizations with projects that they would otherwise not be able to realize. This becomes all the more important in unprecedented Covid-19 times”, explains Truma CEO Robert Strauß.
