Projects we support

School for all

The plantation in Nilgiri runs the largest school in the district. The school currently has approximately 1,300 students from preschool through elementary school to high school. Children of both factory workers and managers study under the same roof with the same conditions. For students who live far away, accommodation is available during the week and for those without family there is an orphanage

Better work tools

For the 350 tea pluckers on the plantation in the Blue Mountains, We have replaced the heavy and unwieldy baskets to lightweight baskets with a high collar to easily throw the tea leaves over the shoulder. The traditional bamboo baskets weight 4000 g and the new light basket 400 g.

Medical care on
equal terms

On the plantation, the workers have free housing and the opportunity to visit nurses and doctors free of charge. In case of more serious illnesses, there is one of its own ambulance and a larger hospital in the district with access to specialist doctors, x-rays and surgery. All this is made and operated by the plantation.
