History of NAGA Denmark

 

The name, NAGA, an abbreviation of Danish words for
"NAture" and "GIft",
has been inspired by the materials the boards were made of.

    We hold social responsibility and play an active role in our community. Social responsibility has become part of our entire business. Awareness of taking responsibility for other members of our society creates peace of mind and better employee satisfaction.
    We are therefore very proud to receive the CSR brand from Horsens municipality, which highlights companies that help to create a comprehensive labor market. A labor market that gives people from outside an opportunity to join inside.

    Danish Hospital Clowns is an organization, which follows the idea that humor, laughter, and smiles ease the healing process. The aim is to spread joy amongst younger patients in Danish hospitals. The clowns use humor and imagination in their work which focuses on increasing the children's self-confidence and providing them with tools to be able to handle their situation, which in the end makes these patients' stay in the hospital more bearable. Danish Hospital Clowns' work in Danish hospitals depends on donations. We at NAGA find this initiative, which supports children in a difficult situation, important. That is why we have chosen to support them.
