65,000 euros were needed to build a fully equipped orphanage for 30 children up to the age of 3 in Burkina Faso. As part of its 150th anniversary celebrations in 2018, Gerlach called for donations instead of gifts. Half of the amount was raised in this way. The company topped up the remaining amount. Despite the most difficult circumstances in the country, the construction could be realized. Today, 10 children live in their new home. The heartfelt project will continue in the future - the company will bear the ongoing personnel and operating costs, and sponsorships for the children will be taken on within the company.
