Connectivity and digital inclusion
As a company strongly rooted in Belgium, we want to give back to society concretely and directly. We do this by supporting national projects as well as local initiatives close to Proximus offices. KPI
Number of children with a long-term illness connected to their school by Bednet and Take Off
1,164 > 1,000
Bednet and Take Off We are a proud partner of Bednet in Dutch-speaking schools and Take Off in French-speaking schools. These associations allow children suffering from a long-term illness to be schooled at home or at the hospital thanks to videoconferencing solutions. We support them by providing Internet connection and financial aid. In 2019, Bednet and Take Off helped 1,164 children.
Further initiatives In 2019, we participated in solidarity campaigns of our partner Be.Face, including a large-scale collection of warm clothing and food for the homeless. In collaboration with NGOs and humanitarian organizations, we installed free Wi-Fi in places where refugees and migrants can stay. Then, we continued our support to TĂŠlĂŠvie, CAP48 and the Belgian Paralympic Committee. As a proud partner of the Paralympic Team Belgium, we actively support the athletes preparing for the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games. We supported 15 social initiatives by employees in 2019, by giving them visibility in our offices. We also collaborated with the Red Cross and 545 Proximus employees donated blood in 2019 (compared to 244 in 2018).
We are committed to further help these organizations develop their projects. In 2020, Bednet plans to assist 1,000 children and Take Off 100 children.
