100% MODEL

Human Practice Foundation’s development projects are shaped by a business and investments based approach. Inspired by such an approach we, like any other business, maximize our output by making optimal use of the resources at our disposal. The objective of the projects funded by the Foundation is to assist our local partners, to jointly, create a sustainable livelihood for themselves and their communities. This entails developing innovative skills and methods in agriculture, and improving education by generating conditions favourable to teaching and learning. The result of our investments is rated according to how many children attend school, how many women that are employed or the growth, on a socioeconomic level, of the local community. Our work is based on the 100% model:

 100% of the means donated to a specific project will be channeled, in its entirety, to that project. The operating expenses of the Foundation are financed by the Founding Fathers.

 100% transparency in all projects: An overview of the specific use of donations will be openly available to project investors at all times. (See projects!)

 100% involvement by donors as well as by the recipients. Obviously, the donors may decide for themselves on how they intend to get involved in the project they choose to support. It is a key notion that the recipients in the developing world actively participate in both defining and implementing the project. This will encourage the recipients to continue the development of their community on their own. (See projects!)

 

 

 

 

 

PROJECTS

The Human Practice Foundation primarily supports projects aimed at elevating the living standards in indigenous communities in the developing world. The targeted areas of emphasis are education and agriculture – Nepal is our first project country, although our long term goal is to operate in developing countries all over the world.

The school projects mainly focus on:

  1. Establishment of schools in isolated areas,
  2. Enabling poor children to attend school,
  3. Improving the level of education through better training for teachers, better teaching materials and facilities, scholarship programs, free lunch programs, etc.

The projects are designed to function as incentives for local development, involving the entire community at all levels.

Growth and entrepreneurial projects are geared towards improving personal skills, thus creating the possibility for a more solid socioeconomic foundation at the local level.

These consist of: programs tailored to educate farmers into using more sustainable crops, and learning how to keep and augment livestock by innovative methods and technics of production. .

ABOUT US

We are a group of passionate problem solvers, who wish to make a difference in the world. The Foundation’s mission is to connect western expertise with indigenous experience in the developing countries, in a spirit of cooperation which actively include both donors and beneficiaries. The outcome of this collaboration should lead to the improvement of living conditions for those who are in need.

MEET THE FOUNDERS

Pernille Kruse Madsen, Founder and Board Member, has lived a life in the fast track lane. In 2013 she started working at Maersk, for whom she travelled all over the world, a dream job for any young lawyer.

Slowly Pernille realized that this was not what she wanted to do with her life; ”We are only here on Earth for a short time and therefore, that time has to be meaningful”, she says. At the age of 33, Pernille thus took one of the biggest decisions in her life. She quitted her job, sold all her belongings and bought a one-way ticket to Australia. After a couple of months in Australia, she went to Nepal where she found out, what she wanted to do; she wanted to apply all her abilities and rally all her energy to start a novel and different movement aiming to tackle poverty in the developing countries.

Pernille went back to Denmark where she started the Human Practice Foundation, with help from Nils Foss and the brothers Martin & Jesper Kring.

 

MEET THE FOUNDING FATHERS

All of the Foundation’s operating costs, which almost only comprise of salaries, are financed by a group of men and women with enormous socioeconomic capital. They are the Founding Fathers of the Foundation. They make the Human Practice Foundation unique.

By financing the operation of the Foundation the Founding Fathers enable us to guarantee all investors that their funds are allocated, in their entirety, to each designated project. Moreover their involvement in the Foundation also helps to attract many more investors to fund projects.

SUPPORT A PROJECT

There are many ways to support the projects of Human Practice Foundation (HPF) and many degrees of involvement. You can choose to make a donation without further participation or you can actively involve yourself in all phases of a project.

Click on the tabs to find out more!

As a private project investor acting  alone or as a family you have the opportunity to engage yourself in the project through active involvement and visits. Please look through our list of planned projects and see if you want to support them. You are also welcome to contact us and tell us about your own ideas. We may be able to adjust the project to meet your wishes.

As a company you will benefit from project investments in your advertising, marketing or CSR strategy, for example by selecting a project where there is a need for the company’s know-how. As a company you will be collaborating closely with the Foundation, so you constantly receive the information you want regarding the project. Contact us to share your wishes and ideas.

Foundations and associations often have an object clause that can be fulfilled by designing a project that meets their purpose. Impoverished people have needs that your foundation or association can help fulfill in every possible way. Please contact us to arrange a meeting, where we can discuss your ideas.

Groups of investors that work together (or equally led by us) on a specific project, are able to organize themselves and agree upon how much the participants want to involve themselves in the project. Some might be particularly interested in financing, while others want to be a part of the project management process or the more practical/technical side of the project. Yet others may prefer only to donate money without further participation. Please look through our planned projects and see if you could be interested in joining one. Or contact us to share your ideas.

Basic donations without further involvement are of course more than welcome. Your donation will be a part of a “donor pool”. You can follow your donation on our webpage to see what the pool money is used for and what results it creates. Bank details of the foundation can be found below or under “contact us”.

If you would like to contribute to the Human Practice Foundation’s projects, you can transfer an amount of your choice to our Jyske Bank account (you will find the payment information at the bottom left). Please also fill in the form below with your name, e-mail and message to receive updates about the fund’s performance, supporter meetings, events, etc.
