Project of the Month
Within the European Union the transfer from one account to another is for free. From outside of Europe we recommend you to use TransferWise to send the money to the account of our association in Austria.
100 percent of the donations for the project of the week will be added up and directly sent to the project of the week.
If the transaction from our account to the project implies transaction fees, we deduce these from the sum of all of the participants' donations.
Thank you for sowing seeds of solidarity and sustainability with us!
Every single planted seed is precious!
The project of this month is is a solar dehydrator that Mariana and Andres want to build in Venezuela and that they are going to used especially for drying fruits. They have already received our support for buying an electrical mill. Since then they have been producing mandioca and banana flour and als selling their surplus for accessible prices on the local market.
With this solar dehydrator they are going to do another step towards food sovereignty. Where they live there is a lot of sunshine all year long. They will be able to save electricity and probably they'll be a source of inspiration for other neighbouring farmers as well! Venezuela really needs innovative and motivated people like them in agriculture!
