Sponship SOS-Kinderdorf

Austria-wide and local sponsorship

STIHL Tirol continues its commitment to the SOS Children's Villages

STIHL Tirol has sponsored SOS Children's Villages for 18 years. In the SOS Children's Villages, it is not only the children and adolescents who require care, there are also green spaces and gardens that need to be looked after. Due to the current demand for gardening tools, the support this year is being provided in the form of STIHL tools from Tyrol. Numerous STIHL tools have already been delivered as part of this Austria-wide campaign.

A STIHL cordless lawn mower went to the SOS Children's Village in Altmünster, Upper Austria.

Sponship of a local environmental project

Support for a local environmental project

In Langkampfen, the home of STIHL Tirol, the association UNOS 93 and pupils from all of the schools in Langkampfen have made it their mission to fight Himalayan balsam (Impatiens glandulifera) within the community, as this plant impedes and inhibits the growth of many other plants. Well-equipped with work gloves, caps and a hearty snack sponsored by STIHL Tirol, about 300 kids and teenagers walked through all of the districts within the community and plucked out several tons of the pest plant.

Pupils from the Langkampfen community launched an ambitious crusade against this unpopular balsam.
