FORD VOLUNTEER PROJECTS EXPAND IN NEPALPosted On: September 29, 2016 By : AutoLife Team
Ford Motor Company kicked off the 11th annual Global Caring Month in September with Ford volunteers from more than three dozen countries around the world signing up for community projects, including a growing number of emerging markets from Cambodia to Laos, and Myanmar to Samoa.
On 28th September 2016, 36 employees from GO Ford, worked with Round Table Nepal in Koseli Foundation to provide a series of activities to create an equal opportunity for underprivileged children to acquire knowledge and education.
During Ford Global Caring Month in September, some 20,000 Ford volunteers will participate in hundreds of community service projects around the world. Global Caring Month is the signature annual event of the Ford Volunteer Corps. Since it was launched in 2005, Ford Volunteer Corps members have contributed more than one million hours of community service in 48 countries, representing $29 million of in-kind community investments.
In Asia Pacific, thousands of Ford volunteers will participate in various projects in China, India, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Philippines, as well as in 10 countries in Ford’s Emerging Markets business unit.
While the Ford Volunteer Corps is active throughout the year, Ford Global Caring Month is the highlight of a year-round effort to flex the volunteer muscle of Ford employees, retirees and dealers to make a positive difference in the neighbourhoods and communities where the company does business.
