How do we finance our projects?

The Greenfinity Foundation’s work is financed through contributions in the form of donations from companies and private persons.

An essential component of the entire financial resources stems from the myWorld Group of Companies (myWorld Holdings), who sets the yearly budget for the Greenfinity Foundation’s realisation of projects. The yearly budget amount is dependent upon the success of the corporate group’s various business areas. In addition, the myWorld and its partners provide the Greenfinity Foundation with numerous services and the necessary infrastructure free of charge.

Project Management

“I find working for the Child & Family Foundation very fulfilling. I am able to build bridges between generous people who are willing to help and poor people in need. As a globetrotter, I am also very interested in the Foundation’s international reach. Other ways of living inspire me, they provide me with new input for my own life. Based on my experiences, I want people to be happier with what they have.”

“I always wanted to do a job that mattered – to someone, somewhere. That made a difference to the lives of people. The Child & Family Foundation does just that in supporting children who are fighting against injustice to receive an education which will take them places. As I see it, there is no greater right than the right to education, enshrined in the Convention on Human Rights. Without this vital start in life, children are at a disadvantage and cannot carve a path of their own. I am thrilled to have the chance to help make the opposite a reality.”

“I believe that work should have purpose. I wish for people to be living securely and in peace on our planet, for nobody to suffer from hunger and for environmental damage to end. So I’m really glad to be able to contribute to this with my work at the Child & Family Foundation. I also have the pleasure of  working with very friendly colleagues here. But of course, those who need our help take centre stage. This type of work has also shaped my approach to life: my problems are nothing in comparison to some others.”
