Corporate Social Responsibility

As a successful global organization, Speexx feels obliged to give something back to society. We have therefore initiated a number of campaigns to make a difference, not only in climate protection but also as part of the United Nations Global Compact. Give a little – help a lot: That’s the goal of Speexx’s ‘A Million Chances’ Charity Project. And our success shows that we’re on the right path.

A Million Chances

Each year, we donate 1 million Euros’ worth of educational products to a variety of projects around the world. By doing what we do best – providing learning and continuing education opportunities – we are committed to being a reliable partner in the building of a better future in particularly disadvantaged regions of the world.

Our mission is a reflection of our organization’s fast-paced development over the past 17 years and we continue to work on it in thorough discussions with our clients and employees.

A Million Chances does this by focusing on three main goals:

  • Education – as a springboard for independence and autonomy – is not par for the course in all regions of the world. It needs to be facilitated and supported.

  • Foreign language skills – as a means of breaking down global language barriers – are for us, a leading language specialist and provider of innovative language learning solutions, particularly dear to our heart.

  • Sustainability – helping victims and children in need to help themselves is Speexx’s long-term goal.

The goal of the initiative is to increase the preparedness and effectiveness of humanitarian aid workers by making training more accessible.

Speexx is proud to support DisasterReady.org by providing aid workers of NGOs and humanitarian agencies with online language courses for English, French and Spanish. Some of this year’s charities include French Medical Institute for Children, E.L.I.S.A. MEDICOPTÈRE, Mercy Corps, UNHCR and Save the Children.
