For the moment we are engaged in two specific projects both aiming to support and help people less fortunate.
The founder and owner of Shortway Trade House have together with Anne Parrotta Rinaldi started the organisation Ramus Oleae in Umbria, Italy. The aim is to help immigrants to a better situation in terms of work and social life. This is done by education; work training and practical work training. Predominantly within the agriculture sector in Italy/Umbria. A specially close relationship is developing with olive farmers and mills in the area around Perugia in Umbria. The harvested and refined products are at present sold in the area around Perugia. Profit margins are funnelled back into the organisation Ramus Oleae in Umbria, Italy. This enables the organisation to support even more immigrants to move from being a burden to the society to being a contribution factor!
In Chennai India, we support one production plant producing high quality products made of leather and/or in cotton canvas. For example hand bags, small leather goods, garments and kitchen wear.
The production unit is since some time back employing only abandoned women, women who have been left by there husbands, for one reason or the other. Usually these women are having an extremely tough situation, especially if they have children to cater for. We offer them job, well pay, health insurance etc.
