The Foundation is involved in existing networks and helps with ongoing projects:
For five years now a bloody civil war has prevailed in Syria. The fronts are completely hardened and the violence does not seem to end.
We support the Orienthelfer e.V. in Munich.
Orienthelfer e.V. is regularly on its own to help Syrian refugees in many matters and in different countries. Through the help of trustworthy middle-men on the ground, a comprehensive help can be guaranteed. The services provided by Orienthelfer e.V. range from direct financial support in the initial emergency to the financing of operations and emergency transports to the organization and financing of training places for Syrian girls.
We support the Grünhelme e.V. in their deployment in Syria eg in the construction of a kindergarten and a school.
Kenya “Life prospects for AIDS orphans in Kenya” –
Through inclusion, training and promotion of village communities and relatives, Aidswaisen receive a worthy life perspective.
This project is particularly supportive of elderly people with AIDS orphans. These people are taught in organic farming, learn composting, sowing and the reproduction of small cattle.
Microcredits are granted.
Especially needy children get school fees. – A training center with power supply is set up for training as a hairdresser, beautician, as a seamstress or as a carpenter and electrician in the Gatanga district about 30 km from Nairobi.
“Life prospects for small farmers”
Smallholder organization SACDEP (Program for Sustainable Community Development)
The following are cultivated: Vegetable gardens, which provide rich and varied food for humans and animals during organic farming. The water supply is ensured with water tanks and dugouts; Milk goats donate valuable milk protein as well as manure for the compost. Biogas plants are built for cooking, which limit the felling. It is also important to cultivate our own seeds, which gives food security and makes us independent from the purchase of expensive and questionable hybrids.
Uganda according to the United Nations Development Index (HDI), Uganda is ranked 154 out of 177 countries.
Four out of five Ugandans live on agriculture. The majority of the population consists of small farmers and small farmers.
“Integral development work in Uganda”
This project promotes training and teaching on the application of biodynamic agriculture for Ugandan small farmers as well as supporting active health care;
Nambeeta school in Nambeeta, Uganda. 50 km from the capital Kampala. The school is run by a teacher / parent association. – At present, 140 children attend kindergarten and school. Organic farming is teaching in this school. – The children also learn other practical activities, such as the basketting of baskets. These allow them to earn a small income later.
In this area, most families are small-scale farmers who order their land that feeds them and their family. They can hardly make money for a school visit to their children.
We support projects in India which provide help for children’s slaves, street and working children as well as for orphans.
Children are sold as a servant to a distant city against a loan to their parents and are abused as labor slaves. The centers are a starting point for the children to retreat, to find advice and support, to play and to catch up with the elementary school.
A children’s call was set up. Public relations work against child slavery takes place.
While about 96% of Indian children are being trained, only 60% are still in school until the age of 10. 40% become so-called drop-outs.
Especially girls of poorer strata have to work mostly to contribute to the livelihood of their families. Through lack of education, poverty continues over generations.
Health for untouchables.
A medical team and health care workers look after about 76,000 people from 80 villages.
The people in the villages are trained in organic farming and herbal cultivation. This gives the families an income base.
The future will secure for indigenous miners from six municipalities of the province of Cajamarca in the northern highlands of Peru by reforestation, construction of water basins and use of wind energy. This project of the GLS Treuhand which we support helps the miners in Peru to preserve their own habitat for future generations.
Afforestation is one of the most important factors for slowing down soil erosion, as well as increasing soil’s ability to store water; To prevent flooding and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in our atmosphere. Through these measures, the landscape is permanently altered and is a project that has little to do with climate change.
The six peasant communities run their own tree nurseries for trees that thrive at a height of 4000 m. The fruits and seeds are processed as remedies and the fruits of the Taya tree provide dye for the traditional Peruvian costumes.
Parallel to the reafforestation, the communities have begun to improve their water supply. Water reservoirs are applied.
Since the miners are not connected to a power grid, wind turbines are used to supply community buildings such as schools and kindergartens.
The projects mentioned above are carried out by GLS Treuhand – “Future Foundation Development Assistance”.
In order to preserve the biodiversity of our nature as well as our foodstuffs, and at the same time to support all small farmers of our planet who are usually unable to buy expensive seeds, which are usually genetically manipulated and not reproducible; The seeds do not produce new plants.
Let us support cult cultivation e.V.
The Kultursaat e.V. is registered under the code VR 2188 and is recognized as a non-profit organization.
Kultursaat has set itself the task of preserving and developing open-flowering, ie post-productive, seed-resistant varieties for the quality-oriented, ecological cultivation of cultivation. The dominance of hybrids in the seed supply of most species makes this work more difficult, since seed seeds are less and less seeded as the basis for breeding. For this reason, a collection of seed-resistant varieties still available in the Northern and Central European seed market was co-financed by a co-financed project of the Federal Organic Farming Program and the Hessian Ministry for the Environment, Energy, Agriculture and Consumer Protection and the Software AG Foundation. The first samples have been sifted under conditions of biodynamic horticulture and the results have been published via the online database starting with cauliflower, field salad, kohlrabi, carrots, leeks, celery, spinach and onions.
Quality at the food starts with the seed! And in the case of seeds from biodynamic breeding work is done on vitality, taste and digestibility – so these foods are so aromatic.
Anyone who develops and uses stand-alone varieties for organic farming will be independent of the agricultural industry, which negates the dignity of the plants in the laboratory and does not shrink from interventions close to genetic engineering. Chemical companies have different goals. They see seed as an economic factor and ensure that it is no longer easily reproducible.
America has only two seed producers.
It is necessary to preserve the treasures of the variety of seeded vegetable varieties and to make them available for cultivation.
We support the Mellifera e.V. – Association for Beekeeping
Mellifera e.V. researches beekeeping, development of peoples’ management and beekeeping.
The very big bee-bunting worldwide (over 30% of the bee-peoples alone in the USA in recent years) has made us very affected.
We were standing in front of a beautiful flower meadow, but the insects were missing; Another example on a plentifully blossoming cherry tree are just a few cherries ….
In the context of the care of the elderly as well as for the right medical framework “around the dying” – dying in dignity!
We support the Palliative Station of the Clinic Öschelbronn for this purpose. – Non-profit clinical association Niefern-Öschelbronn.
We support the Society for the Promotion of Krebstherapie e.V. in Niefern-Öschelbronn in its work on the improvement of cancer therapy.
We support the military service of the Bundeswehr e.V.
This initiative supports soldiers who are affected by post-traumatic consequences (violation of the soul by brutality) of the deployment by the Bundeswehr’s foreign operations;
Equally the members of fallen soldiers are supported.
Please support the above projects with your donation!
