Honda Reveals the Fourth Annual “Your Project, Our Project" Winner
- Prize of €25,000 presented to Padrino Tecnológico program for its “The Power of Mobility” Initiative.
- “Your Project, Our Project” received 84 proposals and over 56,000 votes
Honda has awarded €25,000 prize to the Padrino Tecnológico program at the University of Alcala (UAH), Madrid, Spain, as part of its “Your Project, Our Project” Corporate Social Responsibility initiative. 2016 marks the fourth year of the initiative.
The winning proposal from UAH, “The Power of Mobility” has been designed to improve the mobility of children that have conditions that reduce mobility. The prize will allow the Padrino Tecnológico entity to donate six walkers and five seats to 11 care centres for children with disabilities in Spain.
The Padrino Tecnológico entity works to meet the mobility needs of people with limited personal autonomy. The organisation has developed a sponsorship program to improve the quality of life of sick children by customising assistive technologies to meet individual needs. During the award ceremony held at the UAH, Honda has seen firsthand how the work of Padrino Tecnológico helps children become more mobile and autonomous.
The fourth year of “Your Project, Our Project” closed last December and received a total of 84 proposals, which received over 56,000 votes in total. The “Your Project, Our Project” initiative is lead by Honda Spain and so far has donated over €100,000 to various projects that benefit children in the areas of mobility, sports and science.
