At Animazul, we're not only looking for brands that have a story and a positive impact in their communities, but we are also keen on having an impact of our own in the Latin American countries where we source our products, as well as in Switzerland where we are based.
Our actions and strategy are guided by these UN Sustainable Development Goals:
On our path to become a certified B Corporation, we are currently participating in the Swiss Triple Impact Program. You can find out more here.
OUR IMPACT IN LATIN AMERICA
For each purchase you make, Animazul donates CHF 1 of your purchase to educational projects.
In Guatemala, we have partnered with Li Ch'utam Guatemala, a non-profit organization who's main goal is to make education more accessible to the rural and remote community of the Polochic Valley, Guatemala.
With only EUR 36/year we can cover the tuition fee for one secondary school student which is not publicly funded in Guatemala.
And with EUR 240/year we can support a student finish her or his high school education by covering the total annual costs (tuition fee, transportation, supplies and other costs). All scholarship recipients also benefit from Li Ch’utam’s other educational resources including our IT Center, tutoring, and library resources.
With the support of private contributions, such as the scholarships by Animazul, Li Ch'utam is able to ensure the children's access to further education.
In 2020 Animazul was able to provide scholarships to 3 teenage girls so they can complete their high school education.
