If there is something in which Grupo Nomo strives to maintain and improve, it is our social work, because we believe in the value of people and in projects as special as the one we will tell you about in this blog.
As you already know, our Spicy Tuna is more than a delicious tuna roll. A portion of the profits from this dish are donated to a different organization each year, and the one chosen for this 2020 is NASCO Feeding Minds.
NASCO Feeding Minds is an association that aims to create a network of computer rooms in rural schools in Ghana, with the aim of familiarizing boys and girls with digital tools and facilitating their access to information. The project was born from the will of its founder, Ousman Umar, to guarantee that students from his country of origin have more tools to decide their future than he had.
Ousman left his hometown when he was 9 years old, to apprentice at his uncle’s auto shop in Techiman. Since then he stopped attending school to earn a living for himself, and later embark on a difficult path that would bring him to Europe. He was lucky enough to be welcomed by a family in Barcelona and legally opt for a job and an education. Aware that his case is exceptional, he felt and feels obliged “to return the luck I have had”, as he himself recounts. And the key for boys and girls to have the ability to decide their future is education and information.
Since 2012, more than 15,000 students have already passed through their classrooms, and the number is increasing! All thanks to the involvement of people and companies, such as Grupo Nomo, who help maintain the project on a day-to-day basis.
Eight of our Spicy Tuna is equivalent to one year of digital education for a child in Ghana, imagine all we can do! With your help we can increase the number of students to double or even triple.
Thanks to those of you who are already making it possible and to all of you who will make it possible in the future!
