With our work in IT security, protection, and licensing, we are doing our part for a more secure digital world. But our mission does not end with the digital sphere. At Wibu-Systems, we are committed to helping worthwhile causes that make our world safer and more liveable everywhere.
Our Support to nph
Since 2013, Wibu-Systems has been supporting nph Kinderhilfe Lateinamerika e.V., an international children’s charity dedicated to protecting children in need. Wibu-Systems initially committed to supporting “Pasos Pequeñitos” in Honduras. The daycare center enables single mothers to pursue work or training in the disenfranchised communities of the country’s capital Tegucigalpa, safe in the knowledge that their children are secure and looked after with loving care.
Wibu-Systems has remained a loyal supporter of “Pasos Pequeñitos” over the years but continued to expand its support to other initiatives and countries served by nph. Special occasions were always a welcome opportunity (such as Christmas gifts for nph children in 2015 and 2017), but Wibu-Systems has also been committed to following its principles of sustainable and lasting protection and security also in its social efforts with nph. In 2016, this led to the installation of a source for safe water for a Haitian primary school; in 2017, Wibu-Systems decided to focus on emergency relief for natural disasters (Mexican earthquake victims) and health challenges (a children’s cancer ward in Haiti). In 2018, Wibu-Systems erected a boundary wall for the nph girls’ high school in Guatemala and improved the IT infrastructure in Bolivia. Since 2020, Wibu-Systems has been supporting a school construction project in Haiti. With the successful opening of the supported school in October 2022, Wibu-Systems will continue to back up the work of nph in Haiti. This time, the leading pediatric hospital will be supported in reducing child mortality and fighting malnutrition.
“Make a loan, change a life”: That is Kiva’s claim, and it has been proven by the success stories of millions of recipients of Kiva loans. All around the world, the support provided by microfinance loans has enabled businesses to flourish and people to succeed with their hopes and dreams, with just a little start-up help.
In November 2022, Wibu-Systems became part of an active community of lenders who are financing the loans that make all of this possible. Discover the people we are supporting with microfinance loans throughout the world. From Asia to the Americas and Africa to Europe, our support through Kiva is making a difference by giving people the financial backup they need to secure their livelihoods, become independent with their professions, or take their businesses to the next level.
Our Support for the Tiny Houses Association of Karlsruhe
A little can go a long way: Wibu-Systems believes in the power of technology and innovative thinking to solve many of the challenges we face in today’s world, and this is expressed perfectly in the work of the Tiny Houses Association of Karlsruhe. The Association was formed in 2018 to explore the potential of ecologically and socially sustainable tiny house designs for making the urban space more eco-friendly, equitable, and inclusive. With a tiny house designed by our friends at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, the Association is putting its vision into practice and showing the world why small and simple often beats big and complex – a principle we can subscribe to at Wibu-Systems.
Wibu-Systems is also supporting the excellent work of the University of Music Karlsruhe as a sign of our commitment to the local cultural and academic community in Karlsruhe. The Foundation for the Promotion of the University of Music Karlsruhe was set up in 2021 to mark the 50th anniversary of the University of Music. Its mission is to support new professorships, the development of further research and teaching infrastructure on CampusOne, and innovative cultural projects. As one of the Friends of the University of Music Karlsruhe, Wibu-Systems was proud to be among the first supporters of the Foundation and help the University maintain its place as a hotspot for musical excellence.
