  • Projects

    VIRTŪ shared sense is a for-profit social enterprise focused on innovating the way we produce, deliver and price, fair trade garments. By introducing a market disruptive 50-50 business model, a second generation partnership scheme and a traceability model, it allows end consumers to be closer to producers and be a part of each step of the production and delivery process. Our model guarantees what we have defined as second generation fair trade, products and retail that directly benefit the people behind the production line. Virtū’s mission is to combine the innovation-sustainability scheme of for-profit enterprises with the added value of non- for profit, disrupting the way in which the market has been operating for the last 15 years.

    Das Georgische Kind

    Das Georgische Kind is a social project run by a group of international master students from Bucerius Law School in Hamburg. We are well aware of how privileged we are to study and spend a year in Germany. However, many children are not so fortunate. That is why we set ourselves on a mission to bring vivid colours to the lives of children whose childhoods are painted in grey shades. 

     

    As we come from more than 15 different countries from all over the world, it was not difficult to realize that a vast number of children from one of our home countries, Georgia, live in severe circumstances. Especially, those underprivileged children living in orphanages.
