Mulago Foundation donations made to Mountain Hazelnuts

This is an online portal with information on donations that were announced publicly (or have been shared with permission) that were of interest to Vipul Naik. The git repository with the code for this portal, as well as all the underlying data, is available on GitHub. All payment amounts are in current United States dollars (USD). The repository of donations is being seeded with an initial collation by Issa Rice as well as continued contributions from him (see his commits and the contract work page listing all financially compensated contributions to the site) but all responsibility for errors and inaccuracies belongs to Vipul Naik. Current data is preliminary and has not been completely vetted and normalized; if sharing a link to this site or any page on this site, please include the caveat that the data is preliminary (if you want to share without including caveats, please check with Vipul Naik). We expect to have completed the first round of development by the end of March 2022. See the about page for more details. Also of interest: pageview data on analytics.vipulnaik.com, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

500,000.0012014--https://mulagofoundation.org/Portfolio/mountain-hazelnuts-- Donation date is not a single date but rather when funding began. Rainer fellow in . Mulago’s reasons for investing: “Mountain Hazelnuts takes a systemic approach to creating reliable income generation opportunities for Bhutan's poorest families while restoring ecosystem health and maintaining community cohesion. Their fully integrated nut company connects smallholder farmers to international markets, more than doubling farm income. As Bhutan's first 100% foreign direct investment enterprise, Mountain Hazelnuts' market-based approach and unique partnership with the government sets a standard for future investment in the country, one that serves its people, environment and public institutions.”.
