In 2012, ORONA dedicated the amount of 617,000 € to promote research and education centres and to support cultural and social activities and training. A portion of these funds was also dedicated to cooperative development projects in third-world countries. Our goal is to be able to increase this contribution on a year-by-year basis.
At ORONA, the profits that matter the most are those that benefit the community.
ORONA dedicates a percentage of its profits to the promotion of cooperative, educational, and cultural activities in the communities where it operates, and it funds collaborative projects in developing countries.
The Mundukide Foundation was created in 1999 with the goal of promoting universal inter-cooperation. It sponsors cooperative development projects in a variety of impoverished villages and communities.
MUNDUKIDE's mission is to cooperate with people in developing countries by sharing its experiences, resources, and know-how. It promotes self-managed and comprehensive development for all parties involved, based upon cooperative solidarity in the working world.
MUNDUKIDE's values are:
Programmes based upon training, technical assistance, and strengthening institutions, directed towards groups or collectives with an ideological affinity for cooperative operation and which have in some way requested support from the foundation.
Other activities such as support for the creation and development of cooperative businesses, or of other organisations that work in the field of cooperation in developing countries, such as through interchanges of experience or the creation of student internship opportunities.
Orona's Green also integrates the activities being carried out in the area of energy efficiency, and which are put into practice throughout our entire organisation:
