DATEV Challenge Roth powered by hep

hep is once again committed to Burkina Faso with this year’s Christmas campaign. The cashews from fair and organic farming secure the live­li­hood of small farmers and finance health and educa­tion programs for needy women and orphans.

hep is Committed to Sustaina­bi­lity
The cashews are culti­vated by small farmers in a coope­ra­tive, harve­sted by hand, dried on site and processed immedia­tely. The tradi­tional, original way of culti­va­tion and proces­sing preserves the sensi­tive ecosys­tems of Burkina Faso.

The direct sale of cashews reduces trans­port emis­sions and ensures that the money gets to where it is needed without detours. The small­hol­ders are supported by the aid orga­niz­a­tion “Faan­dima“ which hep has been suppor­ting since last year.

”Faan­dima” means deve­lo­p­ment and is an aid orga­niz­a­tion that helps needy women and children to lead a self-deter­mined life.

With legal assi­s­tance, health and educa­tion services” Faan­dima” opens up sustainable oppor­tu­nities for a better future. hep supports the volun­teer team and its work in the long term.

hep Helps Where Help is Needed
“Burkina Faso is not only suffe­ring from the corona pandemic but unfor­tu­n­a­tely has also been expe­ri­en­cing violent unrest for several months. It is all the more important to us that we do not abandon the local people. Thanks to the trus­ting rela­ti­onship with “Faan­dima”, we know that the money will arrive safely“, explains Matthias Hamann, Chief Tech­nical Officer. He himself coor­di­nates hep’s commit­ment in Burkina Faso and also under­took the construc­tion of the solar plant for an educa­tional campus.
