NRC Charity Awards Nominations
We are nominated for the NRC Charity Awards! The Dutch Newspaper NRC launched these awards to support charities to reach a bigger audience and attract more donors.
Every nominated charity will work together with students at the Willem de Kooning Academie to create a communication campaign. These new talents are guided by creatives Pim Gerrits and Maarten van de Vijfeijken. We are already happy with this nomination, but with their support we are going for the main prize!
Fantastic news! Justdiggit has teamed up with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Charter . This is a collaboration of Dutch businesses, NGOs and the government that work together to tackle global issues and meet the Sustainable Development Goals.
As the Justdiggit projects have a direct and positive impact on many of the goals, we are proud to be part of this charter!
Have a look here for the SDGs we contribute to!
Last October we have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the government of Tanzania. At the end of January we have visited the area and researched where to develop our first project as part of the Hydrologic Corridor.
It is in the Mtanana area in the Dodoma region of Tanzania. This is a dry area where the farmers do small-scale farming and keep livestock. Crop yields are currently under pressure and there is overgrazing. There is little rain, and when it rains it is often very intense making it impossible to infiltrate in the soil; it flushes away the fertile soil, and causes erosion and down stream flooding.
It is clear that we have a lot of work to do! Our planning is to start this summer with re-greening, Read more about our Tanzania project.

Project eARTh U.S.A.
In March our eARTh project will be exhibited thanks to Misho from Misho Gallery in San Francisco!
Misho himself made his own beautiful design of our icon: the shovel. Together with other ‘shovel designs’ by renowned American artists as Johnny Botts, John Kraft, Yari Ostovani, Paul Morin, Gordon Huether, and Chad Glashoff, we create awareness for climate change with this exhibition.
View here all the unique shovels that have been created by the artists
