Since 2007 Alcochem has made Financial commitments to projects which are connected to the areas or markets in which Alcochem is active.
Alcochem has set up a few basic rules in which these commitments find their practical execution;
- Projects are set up in co-operation with the partners in the subjected area, where a common contribution should secure the involvement and dedication from both sides. Projects are linked to People (labour conditions) and Planet (environmental conditions)
- A protocol with all our production parties is signed in which no child labour is accepted in any way. This protocol will be controlled and monitored by our own local staff.
- Apart from the nature of the projects mentioned above we dedicate a part of our budget to support programs that are connected to the well-being of children (our future generations).

Prince of Peace Children’s home China
With a vision not only to do business but to contribute to the future of our world, Alcochem will support the Prince of Peace Children’s home in Tianjin with supplies and materials needed for the children.
Prince of Peace Children’s home provide a home for abandoned children who are disabled, like Down syndrome and cerebral palsy. In 2021 over 150 children live in the Prince of Peace Children’s home with more than 130 teachers and employees taking care of them.
In 1994 Kenneth Yeung established the Prince of Peace Foundation in the U.S., to help American families that wanted to adopt orphans in China. In 1999, he decided to finance an orphanage to be built in China, to foster disabled orphans aged from 0 to 6. After 6 years of preparation, under the cooperation of Prince of Peace Foundation and Civil Administration Bureau of the Wuqing District of Tianjin, the Prince of Peace Children’s Home was built. On July 12, 2004, with an area of 60,000 sq. ft. and a capacity to accommodate 100 children aged under 6, the Children’s Home was officially opened.

Prince of Peace Charity Foundation is established with the aim of providing love and care to orphans and needy children; its missions include to finance the Prince of Peace Children’s Home in Tianjin, in order to have a warm and harmonious environment for growth.
Together with our partner Rotimax Cleaning Multiservices in Nigeria, we have realized a water supply in an area where there is a serious water shortage; Akure in Ondo State. With this project, we trust that we have been able to give something back to society that can change lives.
Since December 2019 Alcochem added a new charity program for people in medical need. This charity program is helping people in Poland to collect money for necessary expensive surgery or medicines. The foundation is focused mainly on children. Each month we donate directy to the charity goal we want to support.

UPDATE 2021 – watch the latest video from choice
Choice constructed a new water storage unit for safe water deliveries to squatter villages, which is sponsored by Alcochem.
Squatter villages are huts, build on the roadside. Some people who live there have never regained a property since the civil war. Some, mainly women and children, have been deserted or kicked out of the family home. Some have lost their homes through selling homes for medical procedures, banks repossessing their homes or gambling debts. Some are newly marrieds or people that cannot afford a home or rent. Some lost their job and cannot pay the rent.
The bore water in the squatter villages is contaminated with Arsenic, a natural toxin picked up by the river source from the Himalayas. A poison that kills after a number of years of consumption. As the people of the squatter villages are illegally residing on Government land, they cannot provide water tanks or pipe in water. The only option is the delivery. With the help of Alcochem, Choice has been able to provide safe drinking water since about 2012.
At the moment of this update they are in lockdown in Cambodia due to the Corona virus. However Choice is still delivering the water. The squatter villagers need the safe water as much now as ever. The deliveries cover the needs of water for about 2.000 people. The water is used for drinking and cooking food.
There are two 3000L tanks connected to the safe town water supply. They use a pressure pump to get this into the 1000L tank in their truck. The truck is normally used for student transport as well, but now in lockdown it’s water deliveries only. They go through 40,000L to 50,000L of water each month. Each of the 4 Village households (see map) gets about 50L each week.
