“Stimulating dance, new experiences with music and a social exchange give children a new chance to escape life on the streets and to learn what it means to treat one another with fairness and respect.”
At the same time, a fixed ensemble of musicians and dancers has formed over the years and has already achieved cult status in Cuba under the name “Okan Tomi”. Donations and active sponsorships enable young adults to study music at the Instituto Pedagógico “Enrique José Varona” so that they can pass their knowledge on to other children and youths.

This is why a charitable organisation called “Costura” [Portuguese for “sewing”] was established in 2005. The goal of the charity’s founders is to support and educate young women and single mothers in Northeastern Brazil.
The organisation has nearly 40 staff members and numerous actively involved donors whose commitment makes it possible to maintain a sewing school in which a talented seamstress teaches young women the skills required to sew professionally. The project also finances rooms and equipment.
Helping women help themselves is the organizations primary mission: Women are offered the prospect of gaining confidence and independence through the use of their newly learned skills, thus enabling them to feed themselves and their children. For more information please visit www.costura-ev.de
The Hamburg-based power provider delivers 204,565 kilowatt hours of electricity from hydropower and biomass to oraïse annually. In comparison: This is the amount of energy used by around 73 average private households in Germany each year. The switch to certified green power saves oraïse 103.28 tons of carbon dioxide every year.
“We are pleased to add oraïse to our list of business consumers who have decided to support the immediate phase-out of nuclear power with LichtBlick,” says LichtBlick spokesman Ralph Kampwirth.
Numerous businesses are already making an important contribution to protecting the environment with LichtBlick. For instance, corporations like Citroen, Globetrotter and Puma receive their electricity from the market leader in green energy. Last year alone, the energy provider supplied 2,600 million kilowatt hours of power to 600,000 private and business consumers.
LichtBlick is Germany’s largest independent energy provider and the market leader for green electricity and green gas. The young, innovative company supplies 600,000 private households and commercial consumers with eco-friendly energy.

The power provider, established in 1998 and headquartered in Hamburg, was awarded the title of “Germany’s Most Customer-Oriented Energy Supplier” in 2009 and 2010.
