End of the campaign "Improving the community gardens of the Upper River Region"

We here at Worldcoo are sad to say that our project for improving the community gardens of the Upper River Region in Gambia has come to the end as we didn’t reach the funding target.

We believed that this project was necessary and had much potential. We would like to say a big thankyou for all of those that did support the cause. All the donors of the project will find their donation converted into Worldcoo credits equivalent to the donation amount. An email with further instructions has been sent to all of the donors.

Once again, we would like to express our gratitude to all of those who supported this project and ask you to please continue to sponsor our future projects.

Worldcoo attends first Social Investment Forum by ESADEBAN

ESADEBAN hosted the 1st Social Impact Investment Forum: “Business and Impact Investment” on 4th December with our participation.

The Investment Forum is an annual meeting point for entrepreneurs who are aiming to make a social impact and investors who are interested in participating in their projects. “Impact investing” means investing in projects that will have a social impact as well as financial returns.  Therefore, those investments are not properly classified as philanthropic or charity donations.

The Investment Forum presented five entrepreneurs with innovative, sustainable projects that address challenges in various areas (protection of the environment, citizen participation, education, job placement, access to housing, etc.) and require at least 50.000€ in financing from private investors.
