BE A FORCE FOR GOOD
Influencing the next generation to think differently about poverty, disability and injustice
We want to change the way the world thinks and acts on poverty, disability and injustice.
We utilize the profits of businesses to help disadvantaged people throughout the world achieve a better quality of life by providing a "hand up" rather than a "hand out".
Our aim is to use our innovative approach to positively impact society and influence other individuals and businesses to consider how they think and act to improve society.
With this aim, we continuously invest in our own and our partner's projects to fulfill this mission.
Our core belief is that with any excess or privilege (economic, intellectual or physical) comes a responsibility to help others.
Poverty is simply a matter of where and when you are born, it is not a result of personal choice or effort. Many people living in poverty face systemic barriers that prevent them from accessing education, healthcare, and job opportunities.
These circumstances are often beyond an individual's control and can perpetuate a cycle of poverty that is difficult to break.
Abilities are not inherent characteristics of an individual, but rather a result of the interaction between an individual’s characteristics. These can either flourish or be hindered by the barriers and opportunities that exist in society.
As such, diverse ability often requires social, economic, and political interventions to create a more inclusive and equitable society.
Social injustice violates the principles of fairness and equality, which are fundamental to a just and democratic society. When certain groups of people are systematically excluded from accessing basic rights and opportunities, it undermines the social contract that underpins democratic societies.
These injustices can take many forms, such as discrimination based on race, gender, sexuality, socioeconomic status, or ability, among others.
A different approach for addressing systemic issues
We engage in long-term partnerships with carefully selected NGO’s and Charities where our values align with the leadership. We support these organizations with funding and broad business acumen. We use this same business acumen to lead our own companies and social enterprises whose equity and profits are reinvested into social projects.
Our partnerships offer great examples of how collaborative efforts can contribute more effectively to social causes.
