Starting with TROOPERS14, we’re announcing our TROOPERS charity campaign.
For years we are enrolled to one single mission: Making the world a safer place. Partnering with organisations and initiatives who dedicate all their efforts towards a more general approach of making the world a better place was a long-held plan for us. ERNW is humbled to cooperate with UNHCR and Nyendo.org.
During TROOPERS14 we will collect funds to support two projects:
Roman Sinchuk, IT-security specialist for UNHCR, flies in every year from some of the most remote parts of the planet to join the TROOPERS community. Roman brought this project to our attention – read his address to you:
Every day there are some children wake up alone, separated from their parents and families, seeking safety away from home, and without what most take for granted these days: parental love, care, security and education. The United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) is assisting thousands of such children in South Sudan, providing them with food, shelter, legal protection and access to education. UNHCR is building schools and now launching a unique educational project in one of the refugee camps in South Sudan: the Internet Lab for the refugee kids.
As a part of the project, ERNW is raising funds to provide the Lab with satellite connectivity. This is yet another amazing example of social entrepreneurship – Thank you. This gesture goes a long way to reach out and change lives of kids in the most remote areas of the world! Thank you for reading that far!
ERNW pledges to donate 5 euro for each KM covered during the traditional 10K run at the Troopers conference by each and every runner! If you did not tried the heroic “Philosophers’ run” before, you have got another reason to join in 2014! Every Trooper matters!
Support the runners and if you run, let your friends, families and colleagues support you on the 20th of March to boost the Troopers’ stock for the big cause! Run with the strongest, empower the kids, give hope!

Nyendo.org is a non-profit company managed by the pupils of Rudolf-Steiner school in Ismaning, Germany. With the profits earned by selling fair-trade African products they support the Mbagathi Waldorf School in Nairobi. We think this is a idea worth supporting! Learn more about it on the project’s website: http://nyendo.org
ERNW – your TROOPERS host:
The total funding sum will be announced at the end of the event. The exact split between both projects is dependent on the current political situation in South Sudan. We keep you posted on this.
On behalf of the whole team and the organisations involved we thank you for your support!
