Corporate social responsibility is essential to the Gumption group. We have been supporting two initiatives for several years: Bring a Smile and YouthStart.
Since 2015, Gumption has been supporting Bring a Smile – in short: BaS – a non-profit organisation that, true to its name, brings a smile to the faces of young children by giving them an unforgettable day. Over the years, Gumption and several other companies in the group have supported Bring a Smile through various fundraising activities or donating equipment such as a laptop or a printer.
Do you want to help Bring a Smile too?
On the Facebook page of Bring a Smile, you will see an occasional call to roll up the sleeves. You can also help by buying online via Trooper or by linking your Makro card to BaS. Or find small gifts and great children's books to give as a present on the Bas webshop: https://bringasmile.be/webshop.
Supporting YouthStart since 2018
Gumption has also been a sponsor of YouthStart for five years. This non-profit organisation activates disadvantaged young people who do not go to school and do not have a diploma to regain the self-confidence they need to work on their personal development.
They discover their talents and ambitions through a guidance programme, and they use their newly acquired skills to translate their business idea into a business plan. Last year, YouthStart celebrated its 23rd anniversary and trained 1,000 young people.
