Socially Relevant Projects

Companies are not charities, nor are they “big spenders,” let alone substitutes for the state’s functions. But we are all part of our society and participate in values such as infrastructure, education, social harmony, etc. that we ourselves did not create, whether as individuals or as a company. For this reason, companies should voluntarily get involved in areas that are not devoted to the company’s benefit but to the common good, in which everyone can participate.

Ever since the company was founded, GAULY has been committed to supporting institutions that are important for a humane and innovative society. We do this through pro bono work provided by our consultants as well as through financial donations. These public investments are yet another way in which we show that we are a valuable member of our society.

Current Projects

Kavita & Teresa

The film and charity project “Kavita & Teresa” connects the life and work of the order founder and Nobel Peace Prize winner Mother Teresa in India with the life of Kavita, a modern Indian woman living in the West. Among other things, the biopic, which shows the “woman behind the saint,” deals with the search for meaning in life and orientation in existential decisions.

The film project of the non-profit “Zariya Foundation” was initiated by producer and actress Jacqueline Fritschi-Cornaz and is realized in cooperation with screenwriter and director. The production is fully funded by donations. All revenues from screening and distribution as well as other donations go to charitable institutions and foundations that support needy children in education and health care, especially in India.

GAULY acts as a sparring partner and support the project with strategic consultancy in communication planning.
