It was a long way until our 20-page project application was written in a way that it could be accepted by the Schmitz Foundations. But then everything went very quickly. The grant agreement between the W.P. Schmitz Foundation and nyendo.lernen hand in hand UG for funding of the NairoBits project with 10,000 € was signed on 3 August 2021.
