Cool Earth is the non-profit organisation that works alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation and climate change. Half of the world’s rainforest has been destroyed in the last 40 years. And, contrary to the headlines, rainforest continues to be lost at a faster rate than ever. But it’s not too late. Cool Earth believes the rainforest can be saved. We just need a new approach. That’s why we don’t create reserves or put up fences. We don’t buy land. Instead, we put local people back in control of their forest. Local people stand to lose the most from deforestation but the most to gain from its protection. As such, they are the forest’s best possible custodians. That’s why all Cool Earth partnerships are community-owned and led – an approach that research is continually proving to be the most effective way to keep rainforest standing. By developing local livelihoods, our mission is to end the cycle of deforestation entrenching villages into further poverty. Creating strong, self-determining communities – not dependency.
Madanyu symbolizes the promise of prosperity that rests in all children regardless of their background. We are not a coding school, but enable children of all backgrounds to gain the basic computer skills to be successful at realising their dreams. Madanyu empowers impoverished children in the developing world to have access to computers and better education using Raspberry Pi. Since its launch in 2014, Madanyu has been committed to facilitate computer based education in the most remote settings of the world with the use of low-cost and low-power computing solutions. Madanyu began as university outreach programme led by University of Cambridge researchers, Aftab Jalia and Maximilian Bock, with the support of India based NGOs and schools, the Raspberry Pi Foundation and the EcoHouse Initiative. Building on its success, Madanyu spun out into an award winning social enterprise. We are committed to our social mission to enable access to computing resources to students of all ages.
