We collect your donations and round it up ourselves before forwarding it. 100 % of the contribution will be forwarded, we do not deduct any administration fees. We support these projects, because we believe it is the right thing to do.

The Kayin State is home of the Kayin, the second biggest minority of Myanmar. Since the independence of Myanmar in 1948, the Kayin are fighting for autonomy of their land. 

The KSEAG (Karen State Education Assistance Group) is a working group aiming at improving the quality of education throughout the Kayin State. Supplies like pens, notepads and chalk are urgently needed in the schools. The NGO Child´s Dream supports this project and helps to support more than 1,200 schools with stationary supplies. Thus, stationary supplies for more than 6,000 teachers and 120,000 pupils is provided.

Rain Tree Foundation

For about 20 years the Rain Tree Foundation and the corresponding German Association Thai Care e.V. take care of the disadvantaged children and adults in Thailand in order to offer them a better future. The objective is always the same: learning to help themselves, to fend for themselves and supply themselves – both agriculturally and financially and in doing so they help many people out of poverty. More than 270 children live in various facilities and have a place here, where they can feel at home. Furthermore, the Foundation installs water filters of the inventors CAWST and was already able to provide over 1,600 families with clean drinking water. One filter costs around 70 Euros including installation and monitoring three times, to assure the water quality and the correct use of the filters by the families. The water is filtered naturally through various layers of stone and sand. The result is clean drinking water.

With your support, new water filters can be installed to enable more families the access to clean drinking water. We could already donate two water filter.

Successful projects

 

Rain Tree Foundation

With your donation we could install two water filters already. The project of the Rain Tree Foundation deals with installing water filters in remote areas in Northern Thailand. Water filters by CAWST are installed, the villagers learn how to use the filters and the NGO monitors the systems to provide a good quality of the drinking water. Thus 1600 families got access to drinking water already.

With your donation through rounding up your purchases we could install two water filters already. The first one was installed close to San Kamphaeng and the second one in the mountain village Ban Mae Sa. Both locations are located in Nothern Thailand.

We appreciate your support.

CFI

With your donation we supported "Kirsten Jade Rescue Center". About 70 children found a home in the Children's Village of the CFI International Children's Support. They live in homes with household parents and thus can lead a life in a family. The children get the chance to visit school, they can take part in agricultural work and are accompanied until they can fend for themselves. During our visit to the Children's Village we were greeted by many happy children – despite the hard fates they had suffered before. We were very touched by it and were allowed to visit their homes, their schools and see their projects.

With your donation we could assist the Children´s Village to finance a new fence. The village needed to be fenced to the adjacent street due to legal regulations and the ensure the safety of the kids.

We greatly thank you for your support.

Nepal

The worst earthquake in the last 70 years deprived Nepali, whom we have got to know as very warm people, of so much: family members, friends and colleagues, while many people lost their houses and homes. Our local partners and friends made us familiar with local circumstances and sent us pictures of their destroyed homes.

A fund was established (Siddharta Relief Fund) to support friends and colleagues so that they can buy food and build shelters. With forwarded your donations to this fund to make a small contribution helping the employees of our business partners to find normality.

Thank you very much for your support.
