For the launch of the feature, we chose the Toni Garrn Foundation. The Toni Garrn Foundation supports the education of women and girls in Africa. Our goal is to raise €20,000 together.  

Update, 24.01.22: Together we have financed the first project with almost €26.400 :)

The latest supported project is the following:

St. Joseph School project

The buildings of the St. Jospeh School in Ghana are not suited to the local climatic conditions and are therefore in great need of renovation. Porous floors, mould and bat infestation affect the health of the students and negatively impact the quality of education. In addition, the energy infrastructure in Ghana is not always reliable, and the school would like to become more independent from the central grid. 

For these extensive renovations, the installation of a biogas plant and solar panels etc., we want to raise 55,000 Euros with Rounding Up together with you. Are you on board once again? 

Saint-Joseph de Cluny

The religious congregation founded by Anne-Marie Javouhey in Chalon-sur-Saône in 1807 took up residence in Cluny in 1812 and called itself Sœurs (de) Saint-Joseph de Cluny (order abbreviation: S.J.C.).

They established themselves in France, then in the French colonies (Réunion 1816, Senegal 1819, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Saint-Pierre and Miquelon and Puducherry, in India 1822-1827). Today, the sisters in Ghana no longer pursue missionary goals. The school represents Christian values, but accepts students of all religions. 

Outlook: Nidisi

Of course, we want to continue to round up with you in the future and use the power of the community to contribute to more climate justice. That's why we are currently preparing everything to be able to onboard another partner after TGF. You can already look forward to this great project:

Recycling in Nepal

Nepal is one of the 10 countries in the world most affected by climate change. In addition, plastic pollution in Nepal is destroying the environment, flora and fauna and is ultimately a threat to humanity. Nidisi is taking action against this threat. Plastic waste is collected and recycled with innovative equipment. The goal is a circular economy that makes it possible to recycle 80% of plastic waste and use it, for example, to expand infrastructure. With Rounding Up, we want to finance machines that enable road construction from plastic waste and advance the general recycling infrastructure for Nepal.
