The Emmabuntüs collective involvement for solidarity actions is very well known.
Several schools and associations benefit already from refurbished computers. But we want to help them more directly.
Lilo is a search engine which funds funds social and environmental projects. It involves the user who earns a drop of water for each search request.
The user then chooses the project he wishes to contribute to, by allocating to it the drops of water collected on the site. Lilo, in turn, transforms the total number of drops of water into grant for the project. The projects proposed to the users are initially selected by the Lilo community. Every week, a new project moves into the funding process.
And two main factors triggered this decision :
- the actions taken by the search engine to respect the privacy of the web users;
- the redistribution to some associations of more than 50% of the advertising incomes.
These sums will be entirely given back to our partners below, in order to support their humanitarian and environmental projects:
- YovoTogo & JUMP Lab'Orione to further develop computer training classes in the Savannah region of North Togo. The money received will be used to buy video-projectors to equip the 4 first training classes within 4 high-schools and to buy flat screens in the course of the 2017 campaign, during which 150 additional computers running Emmabuntüs will be sent, in the September time frame.
- Montpel'libre, is a “Free Software Users Group” in the Montpellier area, which conducts free software awareness workshops in this region, and in particular within the Emmaüs community of Montpellier. Montpel'libre wishes to open rooms for training, awareness and initiation to learn and use tools and free software. Training rooms for teaching the Scratch programing language, for initiation on, and development with, open source tools and hardware, for talking about the hardware and software planned obsolescence, by raising awareness on how to replace defective hardware parts by recycling others, or running Jerry Parties, and also substitute incumbent software by free operating systems and applications. And finally start addressing the Green IT question.
This is currently a short list, but we hope to be able soon to extend it to other partners, thanks to your growing participation on the Lilo platform.
