A few examples of humanitarian projects in which our students and staff are involved:
Children of Sagarmatha (Nepal)
Ecolint students have been supporting an orphanage in Nepal since 2005 called “Children of Sagarmatha” a home to 50 children. This orphanage aims to provide each child with access to compulsory education and possibly higher education to enable them to become active citizens. More information on www.sagarmathasuisse.ch.
Students organise different fundraising initiatives to support a small school called Escolinha, opened in 1993 in a favela in Recife (Brazil). This project raises student awareness of the huge problems in the modern world and develops their creativity and sense of solidarity with others.
