One Million Trees for Borneo
One Million Trees is a joint program of Fairventures Worldwide and the Borneo Institute in Central Kalimantan (Borneo/Indonesia). It aims to support local communities by helping to improve their livelihoods and protecting the rainforest at the same time. Working hand in hand with local communities, timber and food crops are planted on degraded land. Click HERE to find out more!

„Doing something does something“
I have known Johannes Schwegler for many years by now, already back at the time of Swisscontact. The ideas that Fairventures develops to reforest the tropical rainforest are fascinating to me: they remind me of my own “Stiphtung“: “Doing somethings does something!“ I believe in this idea. What is needed now is merely people who support, help and donate.
I would like to encourage you to take an active part in this, as those topics affect us all. Without your help, those ideas only remain ideas. But with your help you can turn the wheel of rainforest destruction and, one cannot be more dramatic about it, save the world. Help saving it!
Yours, Christoph Sonntag
Vocational Training & Agroforestry
Support students to benefit from technical training in order to receive access to a complementary education with the particular purpose of gaining practical and theoretical skills and knowledge about environmental degradation and its consequences. Emphasis is given on the skills necessary to undertake activities directed at small scale afforestation, reforestation, and agroforestry in combination with the accessibility of related income opportunities. Meanwhile, awareness of how to protect the environment can be raised.
As a charitable foundation it is important for the Louis Leitz Foundation to be „close by“ to projects. For several years we have been a supporting partner of Fairventures and together we are implementing projects in Uganda. During my last journey I was once again being convinced of the fantastic collaboration onsite. Together, it is our aim to build longterm perspectives regarding education and reforestation in collaboration with local communities – and in that, Fairventures is a trustworthy and reliable partner for us.

More Opportunities to Support Us
Online-shopping is popular especially during the advent time, and by now you can also do something good at the same time. In order to support Fairventures with your next purchase, you just have to visit www.gooding.de before and choose the respective online shop you want to use (e.g. ebay) and the organization you would like to support (e.g. Fairventures). Afterwards, you will be automatically guided to the shop website and can start your shopping as usual. Fairventures automatically receives a bonus of approximately 5% of your respective purchase without you having to pay more. The participating companies, like ebay, pay this bonus and Gooding transfers 100% of it to us! No extra registration is needed
