Promoting social cohesion and helping people in need is part of responsible corporate governance. The following examples provide an insight into REMEX's social engagement. We would be delighted if it inspired others to join these or similar projects, thus helping those who need assistance so urgently. The mentioned foundations and associations will be grateful for your support!
Since October 2023, REMEX GmbH is supporting the education and adventure programme Animal & Nature (Tier & Natur) by Düsseldorf Galopp. Launched in cooperation with the the City of Düsseldorf's Youth Welfare Office, it enables daycare centre and school children aged 4 to 12 years to have their first contact with horses and the local environment.
In small groups and individually tailored programmes, the children learn to interact responsibly with our environment and the animal world in a playful way. The encounter with horses is particularly popular. The ponies available on each project day give the children a lively impression and often their first contact with the animals.
The children who take part in the free programme come to Düsseldorf Galopp from daycare centres, social institutions and schools. For the first time in 2022, integrative institutions have also taken part, including the "Gemischte Tüte" parents' network from Düsseldorf for parents of children with rare diseases and a group from the outpatient children's hospice service. There is also a special cooperation between Düsseldorf Galopp and the Düsseldorf Child Protection Association, with the aim of giving children a project day at the Düsseldorf racecourse.
"This project came to us when we were looking for a nice location for our summer party. When planning the event at the racecourse in Düsseldorf Grafenberg, we learnt about the Animal & Nature project and didn't hesitate to get more involved in this initiative."

Since 1857, the children's home St. Josefshaus exists in Essen-Kettwig (Germany), which since 2004 is part of the child and youth welfare service Kinder- und Jugendhilfe St. Peter gGmbH, a non-profit organisation.
The facility offers accommodation, pedagogic assistance, education and counseling to around 50 children, teenagers and young adults. It supports individuals in their transition to independence or when moving to their family of origin or other family systems or institutions. The orphanage also supports adolescents and numerous families who have children. It offers protected space in the form of:
REMEX has been engaged in the work of the St. Josefshaus children's home since 2019. The aim of the home is to provide intensive guidance and support based on a Christian view of humanity, and to enable the children and young people living there to lead meaningful, independent lives as members of our society.
Improving the living conditions of disadvantaged and poor people in Rwanda – this is the mission of the Afrika-Hilfe-Stiftung (Africa Aid Foundation). Arising from a private initiative started in 1985, it was founded in Hattingen in 2003.
REMEX has been supporting the "Children's Families" project in the community of Kirarambogo since the beginning of 2014. Children who grow up without their parents, and where one of the older siblings takes over responsibility for the younger ones, together form a children's only family. Poverty, malnutrition, early school leaving, child labour, exploitation and abuse are commonplace. The project includes the cornerstones of housing, health, education and nutrition. In cooperation with the village elders, the pastor and a social worker financed by the foundation, the children and young people are accompanied into a dignified and eventually independent life.
Michael Stoll, CEO of REMEX GmbH, recalls: "At the time, we were looking for an additional social project abroad to complement our social engagement in Germany. After all, our international growth should also be reflected in our social projects. At the time, Mr Küpperfahrenberg introduced us to the project work in Kirarambogo and it became immediately clear - that is what we wanted to do!"
