Besides manufacturing and services, SOPO is heavily involved with support both for nationwide organizations and for local organizations, clubs, and civic associations.

We generally support these organizations through regular financial gifts, and in some cases we provide material assistance or vehicles for transporting people or materials. Many of the company’s employees including management also take part actively in the activities of local organizations.



This is a nongovernmental nonprofit organization based on the ideas of humanism, freedom, equality, and solidarity. It regards human dignity and freedom as basic values, and it believes that people anywhere in the world should have the right to make decisions about their own lives and to share in the rights set forth in the General Declaration of Human Rights. It therefore actively takes part in creating a society in which differences of culture, ethnicity, race etc. are a source of enrichment rather than conflict.



The Barriers Account, a key project of the Charta 77 Foundation, is the first and, so far, only continuous charity fundraiser, and for twenty-one years, tens of thousands of donors have participated.

As is well known, the people of Modletice actively organize all kinds of events, such as Children’s Day, festivals, amateur theatrical performances, musical evenings etc. Thus, the need arose to put al of those activities under one roof, so a Modletice association was created, with the goal of developing culture and sports in rural areas, and especially in Modletice.
