U-Volunteer

UCB Belgium created a platform for colleagues to engage in volunteering activities offered by local NGO’s in Belgium. The objective of U-Volunteer is to provide colleagues with experiences that will change their mindset regarding the issues at hand.

This year, seven colleagues joined the Koudougou initiative in Burkina Faso. Koudougou, created by two UCB colleagues, assists widows and orphans in remote villages in Teenbo and Wappasi with farming and the education of children. This year’s visit was exceptional as participants experienced first-hand the impact and importance of access to farming equipment, the use of a warehouse, drinkable water, and educaton for children.

Volunteer Fair

Over 400 people attended the Volunteer Fair at the Atlanta and RTP sites where numerous volunteer initiatives were presented. Here, colleagues found an opportunity to discuss with local representatives the impact of their participation to the people being served.
