ARGO, a local foundation that works to integrate disabled people into the community, took center stage at the opening ceremony for the second week of the Davos Courses on Sunday, collecting a check for 10,000 Swiss francs from the AO Foundation.

At its workshop in Davos, ARGO provides manufacturing work and vocational training to adults with disabilities, currently employing more than 90 people across a range of roles, from consultancy and sales through recycling and engraving. It also runs residential homes across the Canton of Graubünden.

"Today it is a great honor for me to accept your very generous donation," said Thomas Bruder, Manager at ARGO Davos, before accepting the check.

"We do not take your engagement or your dedication for granted. Our longstanding collaboration and your repeated generosity are very much appreciated."

One-hundred percent of the donation will go directly to the needs of the disabled workers. Thanks to contributions such as these, ARGO is able to be financially independent. 

The AO Foundation is proud to make an annual donation to the organization and encourages all employees and members to make contributions and purchase items from their online store at

The support for ARGO is a part of the AO Foundation's corporate social responsibility program, which covers three areas: society, people and the environment. Find out more about the AO commitment to being a good global citizen here.
