Hevert would like to help those who are less fortunate to share in the success of the company, so it takes responsibility by supporting charitable causes.
Hevert-Arzneimittel has been conscious of its social responsibility from the very beginning and supports regional,
national, and international charitable projects and activities.
Hevert is especially passionate about the "Schulbausteine für Gando e.V." association founded by the architect Diébédo Francis Kéré. The association, with which the company has been involved since 2006, is funded solely by donations and is dedicated to supporting education, health, and developmental aid in the village of Gando in the West African nation of Burkina Faso.
Architect Kéré’s commitment perfectly mirrors Hevert’s corporate values through his philosophy of "Helping others help themselves," the use of natural building materials and the participation of the local people. Hevert-Arzneimittel also relies on raw materials from nature and seeks to strengthen the body’s self-healing powers with its natural remedies, not to just treat symptoms. Hevert is the main sponsor of a new school building and a library in Gando.
Since early 2009, Hevert-Arzneimittel has donated a percentage to the association for each package of medicine purchased as part of the "Gemeinsam für Kinder" (Together for Children) campaign. With the support of its customers, Hevert has donated around €200,000 to the association since 2006.
CEO Mathias Hevert became aware of Diébédo Francis Kéré’s donation-financed school construction project through a television documentary, and the two established personal contact by chance a short time later on a train trip to Berlin. Since then, Matthias Hevert, together with his siblings and co-partners, has visited the village of Gando in Burkina Faso twice in order to get a better sense of the progress being made in the village.
Diébédo Francis Kéré, architecture instructor at the Technical University of Berlin, sees his life's work in this education project which takes him back to his roots. Kéré was born and raised in Gando. He then became the first in his village to receive the opportunity to go to Germany for his secondary education and then to get a degree in architecture. Kéré explains his devotion to the project: "I see my role as opening up better chances for a future worth living for the children of my homeland." In 1998, he founded the "Schulbausteine für Gando e. V." association and received one of the world's most important architecture prizes, the Aga Khan Award for Architecture, for the construction of the elementary school in Gando, which was financed solely by donations.
