The Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation is a charitable organisation founded in 2010 in the bohemian St. Pauli area of Hamburg. They’ve made it their goal that every person has access to independent, self-determined and sustainable livelihoods.
They support entrepreneurial and income-generating initiatives in regions currently excluded from fair access to the global economic system. They partner with local organisations who implement projects within their communities to create positive change and strengthen economic independence.
The focus of their work is therefore on strengthening their resources. For this reason, they primarily promote entrepreneurship and educational institutions that aim to create sustainable sources of income.
Their organisation is funded primarily from the sale of Lemonaid & ChariTea drinks, but donations and active participation in their work are more than welcome. The projects they support lie in ingredients home countries of the beverages and teas.
As of December 2020, they have been able to support 45 projects since the inception of the Foundation. They choose their projects directly and pay regular project visits ourselves to see how things are progressing. This means they get to know the local people and project partners during each successive visit and learn about local problems and potentials. Local initiatives from their project countries South Africa, Rwanda, Argentina, Paraguay, Mexico, India & Sri Lanka that would like to be supported by the Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation can apply for this.
