Who are we?
Nimdy is a non-profit association based in Switzerland. We realize and support projects for the education and development of children and adults. Every donation flows in full into our projects and can be deducted from tax. All members of the association are volunteers.

We are active in Ghana and Ukraine and Regions. We know our local project managers personally and support them on a daily basis via WhatsApp and Messenger. Whenever possible, members of the board visit our projects once a year.

Nimdy is committed to a humanitarian stance. In our work we support the dignity and self-development of the individual and respect local customs and traditions.
We believe in a world where every human being can live in dignity, safety and peace. We all have the power to make a difference.
