Since 1998, Rapunzel has been committed to supporting an annual HAND IN HAND donation to the HAND IN HAND Fund.
The HIH Fund, from 1998 to 2021, was a joint initiative with the German Environmental Aid (DUH). 1% of the purchase value of HAND IN HAND raw materials went into the fund.
The donation helped support ecological and social projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America through the HAND IN HAND Fund.
The HAND IN HAND fund supported a total of 468 projects in 64 different countries with a total sum of more than 2 million Euros.
Since 2022, Rapunzel supports the One World Organic Foundation with their HAND IN HAND donation.

– Organic farming

– Creating sources of income by means of small projects
– Support of women
– Access to clean water
– Access to renewable energies
– Preserving habitats and species onshore and offshore
