Educational cooperation with the student company Ajantha

Since 2016 AP&S International GmbH cooperates with the student company Ajantha. Ajantha is a mixed age, multi-class school project of the secondary school Donaueschingen with the pedagogical goal to teach students economic interrelationships and to give them an insight into the working life. The student company offers services as well as sustainable products from producers in developing countries and from regional producers, who make handicraft products in environmentally responsible manner.

This year, AP&S commissioned the student company again with the employee gifts, consisting of several products both from seamstresses in Sri Lanka as well as from regional craftsmen, who both receive a part of the student company’s profit. At the AP&S headquarters in Donaueschingen the pupils put the gifts together and wrapped these.

"Through the cooperation we always get some great ideas. We really enjoy it, to support Ajantha. The commitment of the student company for sustainable development is very laudable," says Alexandra Laufer-Müller, CEO of AP&S.
