Education for underprivileged children
Education is a basic right for all children in the world. Good education allows disadvantaged children to take their future into their own hands. But access to education is not a given for all children. This is why the work of Cunina, an independent NGO organization, is so important. Their mission is to provide underprivileged children in the South access to quality education so that they can break the vicious cycle of poverty in a structural way. In recent years we supported the construction and expansion of the Notre Dame school in La Victoire, a small village in Haiti. This school of nearly 900 students needed new facilitaties for their secondary education. Methis Consulting contributed to building classrooms and buying furniture and equipment (eg. a copier for the test and exams for the students). Today we are supporting one of Cunina's education projects in Uganda where they suffer from a shortage of teachers and overcrowded classrooms. Methis Consulting is supporting here the construction of a secondary school including a boarding school in Fort Portal.
Reducing our footprint
Since 2009 the NGO Graine de vie has been active in raising awareness for climate change and in reforestation. The organisation runs several projects in Madagascar, Togo, Benin, Cameroon and Ghana to offset the ecological footprint of the inhabitants of our industrialised countries by planting trees in developing countries. Meanwhile, together with Grain de vie, we have planted more than 10 000 trees in Madagascar to offset our CO2 emissions. An action we will continue to in the future. Besides CO2 offsetting, we have several trajectories to structurally reduce our CO2 footprint (preventing is better than offsetting). These include flexible mobility solutions, full electrification of our vehicle fleet, rational energy usage at the office, waste disposal optimization, ...
