For individuals, donors and sponsors (none-industry participants)

In 2005, we founded the “Förderverein CARE & FAIR e.V.” which is fullly recognized as a non-for-profit-association by the tax and revenue office. The association’s mission is the promotion of education and instruction of children in the countries of hand knotted oriental carpets, in connection with the combat of illegal child labour in the oriental carpet production. This mission is being realised above all by the support of school and hospital projects in India and Pakistan and in particular by the exclusive collaboration with CARE & FAIR.

An donation receipt, which can be deducted from the taxable income, will be issued for donations and membership fee granted by “non-industry participants”.
Annual membership fee: € 50,-.
