At Roamler we believe in creating opportunities for people, wherever you are, in order for you to live the life you want. With this in mind, we chose to support a project called: The Rainbow Homes.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Rainbow homes project is a program managed by the non-governmental Rainbow Foundation in India. In partnership with the Dutch based B2B charity, Net4kids, the Rainbow homes provide comprehensive care to homeless girls on the streets of India. Although the concept is relatively new, it is cost-effective and provides these girls a chance at a better life.
HOW DOES ROAMLER MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
For the next three years, Roamler will match and donate 1% of all Roamlers’ earnings, towards the Rainbow homes project. With a minimum commitment of 40,000 euro per year, we will be able to help 47 girls find a home and access to an education. Furthermore, every additional 830 euros on this amount will be used to admit one more girl to a Rainbow home.
WHY ROAMLER CHOSE THIS PROJECT
Our aim for taking up a CSR project was not to join the list of socially responsible companies, but rather to find opportunities that align with our mission to create opportunities for people. We were intentional in creating a symbolic relationship between our company and a CSR project. We are proud to have successfully linked our CSR efforts to one of our core corporate value-sharing opportunities.
The Rainbow foundation works together with Net4kids to provide shelter and education to more than 370 girls per year. The aim of this project is to extend opportunities for a better future to the millions of homeless girls living on the streets of India. Since its inception in 2002, it has reached over 8000 girls, living on the streets of India.
We decided it was time our company to extend opportunities to less fortunate communities and contribute towards making the difference in their future. Starting in 2018 and for the next three years, Roamler will be supporting the Rainbow home project.
