Foundation as a service

Do you want to make a difference
but don’t know where to start?

Finding the right project to donate to can be difficult, and there are certainly many important issues that can be addressed. Groundbreaker is a free, non-profit service that works as a link between you as a motivated donor and small local initiatives in the Global South. We fully support your efforts while you are contributing to a fairer and more protected planet.

Partnership for Education and Environment

We believe that the health and livelihood of nature are directly related to the health and livelihood of humankind. Therefore we are tackling both, environmental as well as educational projects, as they are very mutually beneficial. Let’s partner together for people and the planet!

We believe that education shapes our future

Education is directly related to a self-determined future as it awakens untapped potential, strengthens individual talents, and can lift students out of poverty. It is a sustainable tool that does not only help someone for one day but rather a lifetime– we believe that learning never stops and is important at every age.

We believe in holistic climate action

Human-made climate change is a threat to all people and beings on this planet. By implementing reforestation and agroforestry projects in Mexico we aim for the recovery of the ecosystem while preserving biodiversity and supporting the communities’ livelihood.
Plant more than just trees, replenish a whole ecosystem!

Your support

You want to support educational infrastructure to enable learning in a proper environment or to support reforestation and revive an ecosystem.

Holistic projects

Our local partners are running effective and sustainable projects with a holistic approach. They design each project according to the needs of the respective community, making sure the individual support is as meaningful as possible.

Focus Areas


We facilitate the construction of new schools. Our main focus is on addressing the specific needs of the communities and including experienced local partners in the process.
Profound education requires an appropriate learning environment for students. That’s why we renovate old and poorly equipped school buildings or even expand them by complementing new classrooms, playgrounds, or sanitary facilities.
Technology is important not only to enrich education but also to support teachers. Implementing computer labs is an integral part of improving the curriculum to keep students on the cutting edge of technology.


Cultivating trees
Healthy seedlings are the basis for effective reforestation projects. They are grown in a tree nursery that provides the perfect conditions. Diversity is key, that’s why a broad variety of fruit trees, conifers, and shrubs are cultivated.
Planting trees
Local farmers pick up the seedlings and plant them themselves, knowing exactly which trees are needed on their property and where. The terrain in the Chiapas region is often steep or difficult to access, making planting a major effort.
Complimentary activities
In addition to reforestation projects, our Mexican team supports individual complementary activities such as building ponds to collect rainwater or planting flower beds that attract pollinators to complete the holistic approach.

“I have been looking for a suitable charity project for RNT Rausch for quite some time. We are convinced that problems such as poverty and hunger can only be solved sustainably through education. With Groundbreaker we were able to implement our idea easily and are happy that so many children have access to a new school now.”
