With us, the sun shines for everyone
What is working on-site actually like? Our employees can spend a month on the farms in either Ecuador, South Africa or Tunisia to find out what DREAMS can do.
Here are some testimonies from a number of our employees who did just that.
Back Office Coordinator
“I was in South Africa and I especially remember the friendly and happy people I met there. The cultural differences and poverty left a lasting impression on me. Over there I learned that you don’t need a lot to be happy.”
“In South Africa I was confronted with a lot of gratitude. SanLucar has brought about many positive changes in the lives of the inhabitants there. The children are like little rays of sunshine, always laughing and singing. I also learned quite a bit about growing citrus fruit, figs and grapes.”
Commercial Strategy Analist
“I went to Rooihoogte to learn and to make the world a little better. I like working with children. Of course it’s hard to improve maths, IT and music skills in a month. But it is possible to pass on this idea to the children: That the world is big and beautiful, and we need curiosity to discover it.”
Recruitment and Selection Technician
“The voluntary work in South Africa was a unique experience for me. Besides finding out about the daily life of South Africans, I was also able to learn a lot about myself. Working for a company like SanLucar, where you are given these opportunities and get to see how committed everyone one is to the business, is a great feeling.”
“I was at the Hacienda Magdalena in Ecuador – and it was amazing. As my job entails being in contact with customers and partners, it’s now easier for me to talk about our growing methods. I now understand the economic risk in countries such as Ecuador, and the positive effect that SanLucar’s work has.”
Commercial Planning Consultant
“Participating in the SanLucar volunteering programme was an opportunity I didn’t want to miss out on! I had a wonderful time and was given the chance to start a permaculture garden project, to provide the day nursery with healthy fruit and vegetables. I was amazed at how involved all the people are in the social projects there!”
