AAC Charity Projects

Agile Austria Conference — a conference with ❤️ ​

Your donations help!

The Agile Austria Conference is not only about sharing knowledge and networking, but also about making a positive social impact. Already in 2021, we, the organizers, decided to donate all net proceeds from ticket and sponsorship revenues to charity. We are proud that Agile Austria Conference is not only a leading event for agile, but also a charity event that has a real impact on people’s lives – especially young ones.

2023 we supported the Kindertraum Foundation

The dreams of children and young people with serious illnesses or disabilities are our focus. This can be the dream of more independence, which we fulfill with an assistance dog, or the dream of increased freedom of movement, which is realized with the help of a bicycle suitable for the disabled. The range of possible children’s dreams is as colorful as the children and young people themselves.

However, more than a third of all children’s dreams are related to animals – be it animal-assisted therapies on the farm, therapeutic horseback riding or assistance dogs that stand by the children’s side for the rest of their lives. Animals touch the soul and can unfold their therapeutic effect precisely where people have their limits. Therapy bicycles, various therapies such as music therapy, sensory integration, hearing and perception training, Adeli therapies as well as movement trainers, handbikes, laptops, special car seats or height-adjustable care beds are also on the many wish lists.

This year, with your help (ticket revenue and the sponsorship money), we were able to support the Kindertraum Foundation with € 18,300.

We are specifically helping Maximilian and fulfilling his dream. Maximilian was diagnosed with the two genetically closely related autoimmune diseases coeliac disease and type 1 diabetes. Although the 11-year-old is fitted with a system that continuously monitors his tissue glucose, he does not hear the alarm, especially at night. Maximilian wants a reliable friend by his side to offer him support and stability. Diabetic alert dogs warn of impending hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia before it actually occurs, e.g. by nudging him or putting their paw on him. These dogs save lives, prevent seizures, coma and worse – and at the same time reduce the risk of secondary diseases.

These are the projects we have already supported

2022: Caritas Schlupfhaus

Donation sum: € 14.000,--

The Schlupfhaus offers adolescents and young adults easily accessible, free emergency assistance. The facility can also be used as an emergency sleeping place (without staying overnight). Schlupfhaus is open 365 days a year to anyone between the ages of 12 and 21.

“With this money we can continue our project Schlupfhaus “walk in … take away” next year guaranteed,” says Gabriele Waerder, director of the Schlupfhaus.

 

2021: SOSSOS Children's Village Pirka

Donation sum: € 8.000,--

A loving home for every child. This is what SOS Children’s Villages is committed to in Austria and around the world. Children and adolescents who, for various reasons, cannot live with their families either temporarily or long-term, find stable structures, security and reliable relationships at SOS Children’s Villages.

Thanks to our donation, the renovation at the SOS Children’s Village student residence in Pirka-Seiersberg was completed successfully. The children and young people feel like home in their newly designed temporary home.
