Social commitment

A&O Hotels and Hostels is a company based in Berlin, which is why it is always a great pleasure for us to support projects in and around Berlin! For A&O, it is very important to be socially engaged and to help disadvantaged people in supporting them. Furthermore, we make it our interest to see how the individual projects have developed and what was made possible by means of our financial support.

One of our most beautiful projects that we support since 2004 is the SOS Children's Village Foundation, particularly the SOS Vocational Training Centre in Berlin / Moabit.

These young people also have the possibility to get a first insight into working life by doing an internship at A&O, proving themselves and thereby acquiring a job.
