Schalast Community Engagement is based on three pillars:
1. our kids
In the course of our work on transformation consulting and the establishment of a constitutional state in Eastern Europe, we became aware that there are also losers in the process of change, especially disadvantaged children. For this reason, we have been supporting the OurKids project for more than ten years, which helps so-called "street kids" in Ukraine to reintegrate into society. After the FAZ presented OurKids three years ago as part of its annual Christmas charity project "Readers Help", we have also regularly supported this campaign since then. In Corona Year 2020, these are the two Frankfurt projects "Starke Bande" and "Loki" (local, low-threshold crisis intervention in Frankfurt).
2. pro bono
Pro Bono consulting is not yet known in Germany, in contrast to the Anglo-American world and beyond, and is also subject to legal restrictions. For ten years, we have therefore been a member of Pro Bono Deutschland e.V. where leading law firms have joined forces with the purpose of promoting civic engagement in the area of free pro bono legal advice for good causes, especially charitable causes. Central concerns here are social justice, democracy and the rule of law.
3. collaboration in non-profit/charitable organizations
Schalast has also been involved in charitable initiatives for many years. Particularly noteworthy is the initiative to found Deutsche Kreditmarkt-Standards e.V., which is increasingly becoming a German Loan Market Association. Furthermore, Schalast has also supported the tri lingual Erasmus School since its foundation.
