Signum Fair Jewels
Jewellery Manufacture in the Swiss Rhine Valley
Signum Fair Jewels is a small jewellery manufactory in the Swiss Rhine Valley. With dedication, they produce high-quality jewellery from clean and sustainably produced raw materials. Among other things, they use ecofair wash gold from Finland and Max Havelaar Fairtrade gold.
Besides elegant and timeless jewellery, wedding and engagement rings, they also produce the HeartCoins. A heart project in which Signum Fair Jewels supports the dreams of girls and women in the Chocó, as around 50 percent of the sales price of the HeartCoin pendants is donated to CASA HOGAR. In addition, part of the annual profit goes to CASA HOGAR.
Photographer and graduate cinematographer
Angelika Huber has been working as a freelance camerawoman, trained photographer and graduate of the Baden-Württemberg Film Academy since 1999. Her work to date, which has won several awards, is multi-faceted and ranges from short films and image films to animated films and feature-length documentaries.
She does irreplaceable work for CASA HOGAR by accompanying and documenting our activities in Germany and Colombia – and thus making them vivid, comprehensible, in short: alive for the public. Her films and photographs convey lasting impressions of life in the Chocó, of the problems of the women and girls on the ground, and not least of the way CASA HOGAR works. Angelika Huber’s view is as clear as it is sensitive; aesthetic, without aestheticising; honest, but never expository. In short: Angelika Huber’s commitment is invaluable for CASA HOGAR’s public relations work.
“I got to know the project through a film I made about CASA HOGAR. I was impressed by the great commitment that everyone here brings to the project. On the trip to the Chocó, I was able to get many impressions from the region and about the project and I am convinced that the help that is needed here goes straight to the people. I believe that providing girls and young women with a good school education in a protected setting is an important basis for improving their life situation. I am happy to support CASA HOGAR as a filmmaker and photographer.”
Natalie und André Di Palma
DiPalma-Catering is the company of Natalie and André Di Palma. Both are top chefs, known for their refined menu compositions and impeccable craftsmanship – and, above all, for their hospitality and warmth, which cannot be taken for granted at this level.
You can tell that the people they serve are at least as important to them as the dishes themselves; for Natalie and André, good food means much more than quality food. CASA HOGAR also benefits from this: since December 2016, diPalma-Catering has been offering charity cooking courses for us, among other things.
Centro La Macarena
Online language academy based in Madrid
The Academy offers online Spanish courses for all levels of learners. Patricia and Jorge founded it with the aim of teaching the Spanish language in an accessible, practical and fun way. At the same time, through their work, they want to support social projects whose main focus is education, as they believe that this is the best tool to open any door in the world.
For this reason, Centro La Macarena and CASA HOGAR have joined forces. Students who come to us through CASA HOGAR not only learn Spanish language and culture, but also donate up to 30% of their course fees to support the education and empowerment of girls and women in Chocó.
STIMME+ “Be yourself in your voice”
Marie Rodewald offers the possibility to discover one’s own potential in singing and speaking in her studio in Berlin as well as online, according to the motto “Be yourself in your voice”.
The studied director staged at state theatres as well as in the independent scene before founding STIMME+ in 2016. Giving people a voice has been Marie Rodewald’s drive from the beginning. That’s why CASA HOGAR and STIMME+ fit so well together. Together we are united in the desire to empower people to stand up for themselves and what is really important (to them).
