PfefferminzGreen has been offering support to local NGO Nigat in Ethiopia since 2009. Bezalign Arega, director of Nigat, works closely with local communities in order to give people the opportunity to implement their ideas for a better future. Today, he and his team of community members ensure that a number of projects around the city of Dessie are put into action. Emphasis is to put on sustainable projects that are able to support themselves after a certain time. The creation of jobs is key and prerequisite to long-term success.
Since 2013 PfefferminzGreen works with the local NGO Amazonian Initiative Movement (AIM) and its director Rugiatu Turay in Sierra Leone. Just like in Ethiopia, PfefferminzGreen solely supports projects in Sierra Leone that are based on local initiative.
