One of our core values as a foundation is promoting a balanced lifestyle which leads to personal fulfillment. An increasingly demanding work culture has an important effect on the lifestyle of a significant number of people. The importance of protective factors, including exercise, leisure activities and relationships can often be underestimated.
Hategan Foundation – Work-Life Balance programme aims to develop activities which enrich the quality of our lives and serve as protective factors against stress caused by an unbalanced lifestyle as an effect of work commitments.
"An Edelweiss for a hot meal” is an 8-week community campaign held every year in October and November. Its main aim is to spread the spirit of generosity in the local community.
We have chosen the Edelweiss as the symbol of this initiative because the campaign takes place in the run-up to the Timisoara Viennese Ball. The Edelweiss is a national symbol of both Austria and Romania and the campaign ends with the Viennese Ball, a gala of generosity in our community.
Thus, the edelweiss as a symbol unites us all, regardless of our background, our cultural and social differences for a higher purpose, to get involved to support those who need our support.
