We take responsibility for a
MAQS frequently support and take active participation in social initiatives and activities. We believe it is important that we not only provide funding, but that we also encourage our co-workers to take active part.
MAQS works to ensure an open, and inclusive society. At present we are partners to NU:Nolla Utanförskapet and Bloom Gbg, allowing us to arrange “homework shops” and internships to youth from underpriveilieged areas. We have also been a long-term partner to Faktum, the newspaper run by, and in support of, the homeless.
We have also partnered up with The Right Livelihood Foundation. The Right Livelihood-award, widely known as the alternative Nobel Prize is a major international award, handed out on a yearly basis to “honour and support those offering practical and exemplary answers to the most urgent challenges of today”. We are proud to amongst other things contribute with legal advice in support of their great cause.
”It is extremely important and rewarding to have the possibility to help youth in need with our “homework shops”. In doing so we promote equal opportunity to a good education, but mostly because it is such really nice to meet them. It is a fantastic experience to see them interact with our co-workers, and watch them transform from quiet and timid to so very talkative and mature. The fact that they want the opportunity to further educate themselves is a bonus”
