GROHE Dual Tech
GROHE Dual Tech helps people to help themselves. The 2009 opening of the GROHE JAL Academy in Mumbai, India, marked the inception of this joint programme by GROHE and Don Bosco Mondo e.V. Since then, some 700 youths from impoverished backgrounds have completed their courses at this vocational training facility. Having found employment as certified installers, they can now earn their own livelihood while GROHE benefits from the upskilling in the local sanitary market. Early 2015 saw the start of the project roll-out to Don Bosco Institution New Delhi, India, and Manila-Tondo, Philippines.

An impressive and sustainable project. However, the jury missed outstanding qualities in the areas of innovation and uniqueness.
