Making a difference
It is all too easy to be negative about many of the things going on the world today, but I believe that we can have a positive impact on the world around us, which is why I have partnered with Work for Good and have become a business for good. You can check out my giving page with Work for Good here >>>>>>
SHARE. ENGAGE. INSPIRE.
Work for Good aim is to create a network of socially conscious businesses that actively aspire to counteract some of the world’s most crippling socio-economic issues through positive change. Work for Good makes it easy for small business to donate to charity through their sales, track donations and promote their giving.
Like myself Work for Good believe businesses have the power to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. No matter the size of a business there will always be a way to be socially responsible and make an impact for good.
SMALL BUSINESSES CAN CHANGE THE WORLD IN A BIG WAY.
I am passionate about helping small businesses grow and that doesn’t stop with our customers. I am a firm believer that small business globally can and will have a huge impact on the economy and how we live our lives. It is the whole reason I started this business – to help other businesses grow, and why I started my podcast – Business is Good
And so it should come as no surprise that the impact that I want to have globally is on helping others thrive in their communities. So by partnering with Work for Good I am able to support The UN’s 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) that cover all of the core social and economic inequalities that are preventing citizens from gaining equal opportunity in life both here in the UK and overseas.
Little know fact is that I studied African politics and history at university, visited projects in The Gambia that the college supported and wrote my final year thesis on the impact on IMF policies in Tanzania, and so for my first year of being a Business for Good I am focussing my giving impacts on two ares that I is passionate about, on 2 areas in Africa;
- Gender Equality: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
- Quality Education: Ensure inclusive and equitable education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
Each quarter I select a partner that helps support the global goals I am committed to supporting. For the sales quarter July – September 2019 I am delighted to support the Girls Network – who I also support with mentoring at a local Portsmouth School.
The Girls’ Network is an award-winning charity that inspires and empowers 14-19 year old girls from the least-advantaged communities by connecting them with a mentor and a network of positive female role models. The mentoring is complemented by events and work experience to enable girls to be ambitious for their futures, and not be held back by gender or income.
