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

    Danish Hospital Clowns is an organisation, which works on the basic idea that humour, laughter and smiles ease the healing process. The aim is to spread joy amongst younger patients in Danish hospitals. The clowns use humour 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, which is why we have chosen to support them.
