Our actions shall protect nature and contribute to the advancement of social structures that support the expression of life, such as community well-being, education, sports, health and personal development
We bet you are a doer, just like us
Only a doer would take the time to read our message.
Like most of the people who read this, we at the Foundation have never experienced poverty, war, catastrophe or hunger. We are well educated, with financial means, well-built shelter and social security. Whether we are part of the middle class, well-to-do or even wealthy, you and I belong to the richest 3% of the world. We are privileged and should therefore acknowledge that so many others lack opportunity for personal growth. It is with this in mind that we should find the courage to seed betterment where we can, bring love and joy to others and to move from being talkers to doers.
The Munay Foundation was set up as a charitable foundation in Switzerland in 2015. It is a small foundation supported by family, friends, and other acquaintances that have crossed our path over the course of our lifetime.
Many thanks for your support.
Nobody draws a salary at the Munay Foundation. All of us donate our hours and pay our own expenses. We are truly dedicated to doing good and hope you will support our efforts.
WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO ACHIEVE
Our mission is to foster kindness of the heart and to generate positive, meaningful and enduring influence with our actions. We aim to support personal growth, self-help and self-responsibility, self-sustenance, openness to the flow of joy, mindful presence, pleasure and the deeper positive relationship among people and the earth.
Our actions shall protect nature and contribute to the advancement of social structures that support the expression of life, such as community wellbeing, education, sports, health and personal development.
The Munay Foundation is devoted to benefit, ameliorate and uplift mankind mentally, morally and physically as well as to protect nature. We support a select set of meaningful projects with a vision of sustainability. Charitable support is envisioned in the following areas:
> Social projects for children and the disabled
> Temporary support for people in dire straits
> Sustainable conservation of nature and environmental protection
> Promotion of health and personal development
> Youth teams or non-profit organizations in ball sports and winter sports
Only a few areas can be supported at the same time. As a small foundation, we will focus on a select set of projects with potential for significant impact.
Is a word from the Quecha, an indigenous dialect from South America. Even today, this language is spoken in certain parts of the continent, for example, by the Q’eros in the Peruvian Andes.
The Q’eros are considered to be medicine men and women who are also guardians of valuable knowledge. The Q’eros had an empowering and orientating influence in the founders of the foundation who met in Cusco, Peru, in 2009.
The Munay Foundation has devoted its activities to the “Munay-Ki”. “Munay” stands on one hand for love and on the other for our will power. “Ki” stands for energy. Munay-Ki, therefore, does not only stand for the power of love, but also reminds us that we are celebrating active participation in love whenever we experience or give it. The deeper meaning of Munay-Ki could be interpreted as follows: Whenever we are committed from the bottom of our heart to give love and do good deeds, we will also observe that love and benefit from good deeds that find their way to us.
