KFC – Bucket of Good
Early school leaving is one of the greatest social challenges in Romania. We first joined the efforts to support disadvantaged children in going to school in 2014.
In 2015, we transformed one of our products, the KFC Hot Bucket, into ‘Bucket of Good’, this way donating RON 1 to the SOS Children’s Villages organization for every bucket purchased by our customers. In only 10 months, the project raised over EUR 50,000, the money being used to support two families from the village.
From 2016, we started supporting one more family of children between the ages of 7 and 14 who were being cared for by a social mother. The donations offered provide children in the SOS village of Bucharest with food, clothes, medical care and educational activities so that they may enjoy a normal childhood.
The partnership between KFC Romania and SOS Children’s Villages Romania is part of our CSR strategic directions, through which the company supports the education and development of young people in collaboration with different non-profit organizations.
