AuPairWorld says farewell to 2018, looks to the future and gladly takes the chance to give something back at Christmastime

Kassel, Germany (December 2018). Once again AuPairWorld is looking back on a successful business year. A particular focus in 2018 was the ongoing expansion of our network and the creation of new partnerships so as to be able to offer our customers a greater range of services. For Christmas we are pleased to be able to share our success with others and are again supporting the work of SOS Children's Villages this year.

We are impressed by the work SOS Children's Villages has been doing for many years and their family-orientated approach to helping children and young people.

We found the project "Education for a better future in Africa" particularly inspiring. Finishing school successfully is the foundation for positive individual development and better opportunities in adult life. Education provides a reliable path out of poverty and is a focal point of the worldwide engagement of SOS Children's Villages. Their educational offerings – including kindergartens, schools and vocational training centres  – are a significant, and often the only, chance for education for many young people. Since education is also a particular concern of AuPairWorld, we are supporting the project "Education for a better future in Africa" and have made a donation of €4000 to the German chapter of SOS Children's Villages.  

In addition, we want to be engaged on a more local basis. To this end, we are supporting the activities of the Kassel football club "SV Harleshausen" with €600 and the children's daycare centre "Schwälmer Zwerge" with €400. 

We are looking forward to an exciting 2019 – 20 years AuPairWorld, 20 years at the side of au pairs and host families  – definitely a reason to celebrate. AuPairWorld will also be moving into its own company headquarters building at the beginning of 2019.
