More effective donations

Social business is a fairly new concept. It’s practice is in it’s infancy, but quickly generating momentum. Whereas in a normal business the goal is to maximize profit, in a social business the business model aim to solve societal problems.

The goals of a social business are not necessarily so different from those set by NGOs in comparable areas, but their economic models differ. Just as with an NGO, a social business is measured by how well it contributes to a social goal; not by profit margins. A social business should never give up the social goal beyond sustainability of the business to make profit.

However, if you donate 10 dollars to a charity organization, it will go to a social cause but then your money’s impact ends there. Even though the social cause may be worthwhile such as a non-violence training program or something similarly beneficial, that donation’s impact will end at expenditure.

When you give 10 dollars to a social business, on the other hand, the money is invested to achieve a certain social goal.  The money will remain with the business for return of investment for further use. This makes the orginial 10 dollar investment stronger and more effective in comparison with a donation to a charity organization. In this way, we believe we can help more people to break their way out of poverty by investing in social business.

Why We Invest In Women

There certainly has been a lot of progress made in the way of poverty over the last few decades. Since 1990 the poverty rate has been cut in half, but there are still way too many people living in extreme poverty. 

Sadly, the people most likely to end up in poverty are women. Gender inequality dates back far, but the fact remains; gender inequality is bad for everyone.

Every year gender inequality in the economy costs women in developing countries 9 trillion dollars – a sum that could otherwise provide a massive boost to the economy as a whole as well as propel a higher standard of living for women and their families. Therefore, any positive venture that would benefit girls or women and make them less likely to live in poverty, is a social business worth investing in. Women and Youth are our future and we want to be a part of that transformation. Will you join us?

Since 1990 the poverty rate has been cut in half, but there are still is way too many people living in extreme poverty. Over 10% of the World’s population lives on less than 2 dollars per day- half of those living here in Sub-Saharan Africa.  

Sadly, the people most likely to end up in poverty are women. Across the world women earn less, lack decent jobs, work longer days and generally do twice as much unpaid work as men. Gender inequality dates back far, but the fact remains; gender inequality is bad for everyone.
