Discover the projects our fund supports
In the spirit of our ambition to be at the heart of the heart of the communities Cartamundi operates in, the projects and organizations we support are based in four continents: Europe, North America, South America and Asia.
During the next 12 months, these projects will be supported by the Cartamundi Global Fund:
|SOS Children’s Village|
The SOS Children’s Village in Marche-en-Famenne gives a new home to 42 children. The organization aims to strengthen the social, mental and physical capacities of these children through play.
The recent lockdowns showed once again how important play is for the children. But it proved difficult to offer them a sufficient variety of game options. The organization wants to develop its offer further.
With the CGF’s funding the organization will develop new ways of play.
|Ceifar is a Belgian non-profit organization that aims to support families in the Tancredo Neves region of Brazil.|
The project aims to build a recreational park in Ceifar to educate children through (outdoor) games and activities such as planting seeds and watching flowers grow. Ceifar also wants to stimulate and promote environmental concerns as an important basis for the education of citizens responsible for the future of our planet.
The CGF’s funding will help the organization build the park.
‘Project Spark Tech’
|São Paolo-based organization Viela aims to provide alternative ways to train young people and children through learning, culture and sports.|
‘Project Spark Tech’ gives young people in the community of Jardim Ibirapuera, which has a high degree of social vulnerability, a future perspective by sparking their interest in technology through a hands-on course.
|The aim of Action Enfance (France) is to protect French children who are at risk by giving them a framework to become autonomous, responsible adults.|
With a new playground in their care center of Amboise, the organization wants to create a safe place for young people to get together and improve their social and motor skills.
|The International Rescue Committee (Rescue in Germany) responds to the world’s humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover and gain control of their future.|
The projects want to empower young people in the Leipzig area with a refugee background, especially adolescent girls. Group meetings will be organized to strengthen the girls’ self-confidence, to teach them how to deal with stress and how develop positive role models.
The CGF’s support will be used to pay for staff, mentors and workshop materials.
|The projects want to provide open education to all children of an Altenburg-based elementary school, especially those who have little support from their families.|
More specifically, the idea is to open a library which supports children of all backgrounds to read.
The CGF’s support will be used to buy shelfs, furniture and books.
|World Toilet Organisation|
|World Toilet Organization is a global non-profit committed to improve toilet and sanitation conditions worldwide.|
Around 1.4 million Indian schools have no adequate sanitation facilities. The organization’s aim is to build toilets in schools and provide hygiene training to the school management and students.
The GCF’s funding will used to install toilets and handwashing facilities and to train student and teachers on health and hygiene.
|Pieta House helps people in suicidal distress or engaging in self-harm, in 20 locations across Ireland.|
The Pieta House helpline team support teenagers who experience suicide thoughts, engage in self-harm or who have been bereaved by suicide.
The CGF’s funding will be used to extend the helpline activities as the demand of their services has been significantly higher in the last three months than in previous years.
|Big Brothers Big Sisters|

The organization’s aim is to create lasting friendships and empower each child to actualize their maximum potential.

We will support these projects by donating money, but we will also pursue long-term relationships with the organizations, which may include volunteering work.
Transparancy is key
For our first call, we received 36 applications from 10 countries. Our call was launched in May 2021 and ran until 15 September 2021.
Our Management Committee carefully examined the applications carefully, checked them against the predetermined criteria and invited Cartamundi employees to vote for their favorite projects. All while ensuring a transparent and objective decision-making process.

Sharing the Magic of Caring for People
Cartamundi’s goal is to make sustainability the common thread running through everything we do. That’s why we established the Cartamundi Global Fund in cooperation with the King Baudouin Foundation.
With the mission ‘Sharing the Magic of Caring for People’, we want to give back to the communities in which we live and work. And work towards a bright future for the generations to come.
- Our main target group: children and young people between 1 and 18 years old.
- Our ambition: to contribute to better (mental) health, social cohesion and education.
- Our approach: to partner with NGOs in local communities and to engage in long-term relationships with them.
With our open calls, we support our approved projects with financial donations. On top of that we also support selected initiatives with donations of games and volunteering.
