RINOO covers a number of wealth and welfare projects in different countries


We moved to a new workshop.

Now we are sewing on a new website.

RINOO is a social enterprise and wants to develop its projects into a viable working model. In this way, RINOO does not want to be depending  on gifts, subventions or grants, although these are welcome in this phase of development.

The goal is to be profitable and therefore sustainable.

If there are any profits, they are reinvested in its projects.  RINOO CAMEROON is an official registered company (Ltd.), pays taxes and thus contributes to society. It is subject to legal wages, accounting rules and so on.
