We enjoy supporting things that improve our world.
Cooperation with ProCit
Every 80th child is born with autism, and the number of cases in children is increasing.
ProCit's goal is to make life easier for the families of autistic children, to provide them with a foundation with professional care and to re-integrate them into the majority society.
Skrivanek in blue
The 2nd of April each year is World Autism Awareness Day.
In accordance with the International Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, this day serves mainly for emphasising the fact that it is necessary to improve the quality of life for people with autism, so that they can live meaningful lives with dignity.
People around the world are getting involved in awareness campaigns. Most of these events incorporate the colour blue. Why blue? Blue is the colour of communication and self-expression, which is one of the areas with which people with autism have the greatest difficulty.
As part of the Skrivanek in Blue” project, our entire company changes its colour to blue. Employees come to work in blue attire, and company e-mails are coloured in blue. With the blue colour, we are making clear whom we are supporting and helping in a difficult situation.
