Sun Dec 18 2011
We are now approaching the end of 2011 that was a very exciting year for Fengarion. We are now hosting around 30 non-profit and non-governmental organizations (NGO) from Switzerland, France, Poland and the United Kingdom. The donors who have joined Fengarion are supporting around 50 projects implemented in several countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and South America and are following their progress thanks to the reporting. We are also celebrating the completion of three projects: “Dispensaire” by SOS Enfants des rues du Vietnam , “Création de puits et d’un périmètre maraîcher” by CEAS and "Ferme biologique" by Nouvelle Planète.
During 2011, we have organised several fundraising events such as two Art Exhibitions “Retour” and “Donating through Painting” by Mireille Caloghiris as well as the participation of DuPont Running Team in the Geneva foot-race “Escalade Run”, in order to support a few projects posted on Fengarion. With all the fundraising events, we managed to raise over CHF 17’000. We have kicked off the in kind donations with DuPont Sontara® to support the project « Maison des Enfants de Kaboul » run by the NGO La Chaîne de l’Espoir. In 2011, Fengarion has increased with new members joining the association and as a result, we will be stronger in 2012 to support both the projects of the NGOs and the promotion of altruism.
We take this opportunity to thank warmly all NGOs that have joined Fengarion for their work for the projects and for reporting on them. We would like also to express our greatest thanks to the donors for their generosity in supporting the projects and to the volunteers for their contribution to Fengarion.
Finally, we are pleased to invite you to the first 2012 Fengarion fundraising event, the art exhibition “ALTERNATIVES” by Mireille Caloghiris to support the projects of the NGO Enfants du Monde and to the opening scheduled for 5th January 2012 at 18h30 in Art & Cadre Gallery, route Suisse, 1290 Versoix (Pl. Charles David 1).
We wish all of you great holidays and a Happy New Year!
