JOOL is committed to promoting respect for human rights, a healthy corporate culture and sustainability in our daily operations. As a socially responsible company, we engage in several organizations that help strengthen communities and contribute to the enrichment of society.
Save the Children is an organisation that fights for children’s rights. Its activities are based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Save the Children believes that every child should be safe from harm and supports children in vulnerable situations, both in Sweden and elsewhere in the world. Save the Children also work actively to promote children’s rights.
Sverige för UNHCR
Sverige för UNHCR is a Swedish foundation that works to raise funds for the work of the UN Refugee Agency UNHCR and to increase awareness in Sweden of displaced people. Most of us are not even aware of many of the world’s refugee crises. The UN Refugee Agency UNHCR goes all over the world to help these people – even those whose situation gets little or no attention in the media. UNHCR has twice won the Nobel Peace Prize for its efforts to help the world’s refugees.
Faktum is a Gothenburg-based magazine that is sold by homeless people and others who are socially excluded. The idea is that the sellers buy the magazine and then sell it on for a higher price, keeping the difference. The magazine content is mainly oriented towards various social issues and highlights homelessness and social exclusion.
Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund
The Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund works to ensure that affected children, teens and their families receive the care and support they need. The fund focuses on raising money for childhood cancer research and support for the approximately 300 families who are annually affected by a cancer message. Much of the supportive activities are carried out through the regional associations that are linked to the country’s six oncological centers for children.
