“Added Value” Project

“Anyone who starts at his or her own doorstep -with what he or she can do and how he or she can help –

as little as it might be – to change something, directly contributes to changes on a large scale.”

Flower of Life

The Garden of Life Foundation is a Bali-based foundation. It was established in 2016 by Mario Hintermayer and Ducatus CEO, Ronny Tome. It connects thousands of people around the world in a spirit of peace, harmony and collaboration to create a spectacular 4000m² eco-sculpture. The Flower of Life is a strong, very ancient symbol found in cultures from all around the world. It is located in the center of the 13-acre Garden of Life, a stunning tropical park in the sacred heart of Bali next to a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With your support, we will create the largest human-funded energy field on Earth.


Tree of Life

“If you plant a coconut tree, you plant food and drink, ships and clothing, a home of your own and a heritage for your children."
For today's travelers, the exotic coconut palm means warm seas and sunny beaches. For people who live in the tropics, the coconut palm is the "tree of life", while the Sanskrit word for coconut roughly translates to "the food that bears all life”.



Projects at our Hearts

In addition to our current project, the Garden of Life on Bali, we also support many international charity projects.

Ducatus Charity helps Muntigunung on Bali


Muntigunung, in the north of Bali, is one of the economically most disadvantaged villages on the island. It covers an area of 28 square kilometers. Around 6,000 people live in poverty here. There are no rivers and no wells. Every year, the region suffers from droughts that last eight months. People live mostly off of begging. That's where the program starts. The Muntigunung Poverty Eradication Program is a partnership between "Future for Children Switzerland" and regional partners. DUCATUS Charity supports the project by purchasing locally manufactured products, as well as by providing a sustainable water supply through rainwater utilization, reducing the prevalent high infant mortality rate by 50% through hygiene education, and ensuring adequate education for all children.

Donation 2017: Product sale and gifts for business partners

Charity event at the Hotel "Quellenhof" in St. Martin, Val Passiria. Together with business partners from South Tyrol, DUCATUS CHARITY donates 6,765 Euro for "Ducatus Helps Jana and Leonie" with mayor Dr. Rosmarie Pamer and many dear guests. Our special thanks goes to the Dorfer family, who invited us for coffee and cake. Their sad case made the headlines.

We cannot ease the emotional pain, but we are happy to help reduce the financial burden.
