Our commitment

Support of the feltmasters 

Mit Ihrer Hilfe unterstützen wir die kirgisischen Filzmeisterinnen, mit denen wir zusam-menarbeiten. Beim Einkauf der Filzprodukte bezahlen wir stets faire Preise. Dadurch unterstützen wir das Unternehmertum der Filzmeisterinnen. In naher Zukunft möchten wir gemeinsam mit den Frauen die Designs und Farben ihrer Produkte weiterentwickeln um unseren Kunden eine grössere Vielfalt anbieten zu können.

Mit unseren touristischen Aktivitäten unterstützen wir lokale Einheiten und Familien vor Ort. So bestellen wir während unserer Reisen Mittagessen bei ansässigen Familien oder führen Workshops für Touristen in verschiedenen Dörfern durch.

Förderung von Umweltbewusstsein

With 10% of our total income we support the recycling initiative in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. This initiative is led by our team in Bishkek and consists of young environmental activists. The aim is to reduce waste and teach city residents to recycle. We supported the design of an app that shows the districts in which city dwellers can bring their recyclable materials. For Bishkek, how to deal with waste is a very new idea. We are currently in the first phase of the project, in which we are recording the recycling stations on a map. As a next step, we want to better connect the city dwellers with the recycling points. want to connect effectively. If you are interested or would like to support our project, we look forward to receiving an email from you.
