HUMANA d.o.o. follows the strategy of making it possible for people to give to people.
More than 100 clothing collection containers give the inhabitants in the sourrounding areas possibilities to donate clothes . The clothes is sold and exported, and the surplus is used for sustainable development cooperation with people and organizations in poor countries.
HUMANA d.o.o. is a social enterprise according to ideas of Muhammad Yunus, 2006 Nobel Peace Price winner and founder of the Grameen Bank. A social enterprise is run like a normal company. It has income and expences, but the surplus is used for charity instead of being paid to the shareholders. Mr Yunus says that our modern society is missing the legal structure of such companies - a view also shared by us.
The containers you can find in Slovenia along the coastline to the Adriatic Sea in Piran, Koper, Novo Gorica and in the greater Ljubljana area. We collect 800 tons of clothes per year.
We have a very positive response from the population. It is obviously that everybody can use our system as alternative to throw away the once beloved clothes. In this way we also save the environment.
In 2010 HUMANA d.o.o has supported Children's Town in Malambanyama in Zambia.
HUMANA d.o.o. was founded 2002 and has been member of the Federation Humana People to People since 2006.
