A few words about us

Nanoug Foundation continuously strives to provide support in seafaring, be it on board or on land. The tasks and goals set by the Nanoug Foundation begin where others leave off. With the necessary social commitment and implementation, to take the initiative purposefully and not wait idly and close your eyes.

All from one hand

On the one hand, Nanoug Foundation supports the goals and guidelines of the Nanoug Shipping Company and, while implementing a clear objective, works primarily for seafarers and their families, as well as young people, career changers, students and job seekers in the fascinating, dynamic maritime shipping and its concerns, as well as providing support.

  • Financially needy seafarers

    That usually happens when “flags of convenience” has been carried out, and there are missing collective agreements and missing controls, and thus it has led to non-paid and / or reduced social and pension contributions, among other things, so that no entitlement or only a reduced percentage is due. Which ultimately contributes to the fact that seafarers are penniless after their seafaring. Through no fault of your own, at the same time, of course, the wives, family members and / or widows are also involved.

    These and similar incidents mean that one has to take initiative and not just watch and close one’s eyes.

    For these reasons, the “Nanoug Foundation” has set itself the goal of supporting seafarers and their families, as well as young people, career changers and students and advocating their interests.
