At METRO supermarkets we know well that children are the future. In this scope and with the opportunity of our 35 years celebrations, we introduced the “METRO Better Schools” corporate plan to support elementary schools.
The aim of this corporate plan is to support our children and offer them better educational conditions and opportunities, in better schools.
In 2017 we offered €37.000 as a financial support to 19 elementary schools in total, at the areas where METRO supermarkets operate, Nicosia, Larnaca, Limassol and Famagusta.
We developed an online voting application and invited all elementary schools of METRO supermarkets operating areas to join the voting for the financial support. 60 schools in total joined the application and stated their needs on equipment and infrastructure.
The public was able to vote the school of its preference. The 19 out of 60 schools that received more votes executed the works they had stated in advance and received the METRO financial support.
Works that were executed include:
- Interactive boards
- Video Projection Equipment
- Dictionaries and Books for the libraries
- Sheds for exterior
- Air Conditioning
- Upgrades on playgrounds
- Anti-flood projects
Our aim, through the “METRO Better Schools” corporate plan, is to support more schools with further activities.
