Organic-Fair Farming HAND IN HAND-donation HAND IN HAND-FUND Overview

HAND IN HAND FUND – funded projects 2010

Update: Since 2022, Rapunzel donates the HAND IN HAND donation (previously HAND IN HAND Fund) to the RAPUNZEL One World Organic Foundation.

Every year Rapunzel supports various initiatives in developing countries. One percent of the revenue from the HAND IN HAND raw materials is donated to the HAND IN HAND fund that is managed by the German Envirornmental Aid Association (DUH) and Rapunzel. The fund receives additional money from donations and other campaigns. The available funds are offered every year at the international level: 

Independent organizations, charitable projects and non-profit organizations can apply for up to 5,000 € from the fund. With the HAND IN HAND fund Rapunzel wants to fight poverty and hunger by improving work and living conditions of people in poor countries. Additional goals of the HAND IN HAND fund are the protection of biodiversity and a sustainable influence on environmental conditions. Since 1998, the fund supported 122 projects around the world with a total sum of 504,000 € (last update 04/2011).

In 2010 we were able to support 18 projects with a total sum of 68,900 EUR.
