Our environment is close to our hearts. Therefore, we are committed to supporting it in numerous projects.
To someone with various interests who values freedom and autonomy, WuWIT offers the ideal working conditions: as a project manager, you get to work in a different project on average every 1-2 years and in different sectors, meaning you constantly broaden your horizon and improve your skills. Modern work culture isn’t just a buzzword here and you actually work in a young, diverse team with flat hierarchies, flexible work hours, a healthy error culture, a beautiful office with start-up flair and the option of working from abroad. Even for an over-thinker like me, accepting the job offer was an easy decision.
We introduce ourselves
The Ganden Monastery is located in the Tibetan settlement near Mundgod, a six-hour drive from GOA in southwestern India. The Tibetan refugee settlement was established in 1966 after many Tibetans escaped the Chinese occupation in 1959. It currently consists of nine camps with two monasteries for monks and one for nuns. A monastery like Ganden consists again of smaller areas of Kamtsen / houses. Phara Kamtsen is an area in Ganden Monastery.
The age division of the monks in Phara Kamtsen: < 16 years / 38 monks, 16-60 years / 95 monks, > 60 years / 13 monks. The monks are composed of Tibetan refugees, Tibetans exiled in India, as well as indigenous and international people. Each monastic house has residential buildings around a central prayer hall. Each monastic house is responsible for the care and education of the resident monks. The monks live only on donations from sponsors around the world.
Appeal for donations
The roof of the central prayer hall, shown here, needs to be renovated before the next rainy season in May 2021. In the last rainy season a lot of water penetrated and not only soaked the masonry, roof and walls and caused the development of mold, but also damaged many books as well as spiritual objects.
For this reason, we strongly support this appeal for donations by the Tibetans from Bonn and ask for generous donations, whatever the amount. We want to collect 10.000€ until April 2021, so that the roof will be finished until May 2021. Corresponding donation receipts can be issued via Phara Kamtsen.
Cheetahs are graceful, elegant, majestic beauties. The cheetah’s physique is configured entirely for speed, but lacks stamina. Its slender body and long, thin legs are especially suited for high acceleration of up to 120 km/h.
Its claws, which unlike all other cats it cannot retract, give it a necessary grip on the ground. The cheetah uses its 70 cm long tail for steering and can thus change direction quickly even at high speed. Another feature of this feline predator is its coat pattern. The fur of this terrestrial animal is golden yellow with small black spots.
The population known today includes only less than 7000 adults in the savannah and steppe, mainly in Africa and a few in Iran. Natural enemies include lions and hyenas, which pose a threat especially to young animals. Today, cheetahs inhabit only a fraction of their original habitat and are considered endangered.
Nearly 95% of these cheetahs live outside protected areas, mainly on farmland used for livestock. However, farmers see the cheetahs as a threat to their herds. They hunt the cheetahs and set traps to kill them. Locals also hunt them for bush meat.
Cheetahs are listed in Appendix I of the Washington Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES), which prohibits international trade. In order to be able to effectively counter the endangerment/threat, CITES was amended in 1973. Nevertheless, there is still illegal trade of skins and of young animals as pets, which represents a further danger for the cheetahs.
Here is an example from Dr. Laurie Maker, she founded the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia in 1990. This American zoologist is committed to keeping cheetahs in our world. One of Laurie Marker’s projects for sustainability is the breeding of guard dogs, such as the Anatolian Kangal. Laurie Marker and her team train these dogs and provide them to farmers. Kangals are not afraid of predators and cheetahs would never mess with them either – so the livestock is protected from becoming prey for cheetahs. This can save the lives of a good 500 cheetahs per year.
WuWIT GmbH supports Pro Wildlife with a donation against trophy hunting and commercial use of cheetahs. We support the anti-poaching network EAGLE and fight for strict international trade prohibitions.
Things are not looking good for the fastest terrestrial animal on earth. But giving up is not an option. We fight for the international protection of endangered species. Trade and trophy hunting bans along with habitat protection, are all on the agenda of sustainability. It’s time at act already! We help, you help too! Pro Wildlife!
WuWIT GmbH donates 4 trees for every 500th click on the WuWIT GmbH website, cf. counter. For this purpose, it commissions the registered association in Germany Green Forest Fund to plant these trees on German forest plots. These plots are not used for economic purposes and so the trees can grow for a lifetime.
WuWIT has already planted 4 trees for almost all employees. Why exactly four trees?
Over the course of 100 years, a tree absorbs an average of three tons of CO2.
That’s about the amount each of us generates in three months. So four trees planted each year equals our average personal carbon footprint.
We can stop what we ourselves have caused with 4 planted trees. Help us by simply clicking on our website! Each of you makes a contribution to help nature with one click, without paying anything yourself. Instead of helplessly watching tree deforestation, insect extinction and climate change, we do something good together.
At WuWIT, the focus is on people, so that you are not just seen as a number or a job performance, but are valued because of who you are. For me, working at WuWIT means that I not only get to do my job, but I also get to contribute my personality and feel good about it. The variety of exciting projects I can work on provides variety and challenges me again and again, which gives me valuable experience and insight. In addition, at WuWIT I can get involved in various sustainable topics and projects that are very important to the company. Not only do I feel the recognition for my work, but I can also fully stand behind the results and represent them ethically and morally.As a result, it’s also easy to find like-minded colleagues here, whose diversity gives me unique new perspectives.
WuWIT is a unique experience and I am glad to have done it and continue to do it every day.
