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 B1G1 and have become a business for good.
SHARE. ENGAGE. INSPIRE.
B1G1 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. They believe that 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 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 B1G1 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 plaguing some of the world’s poorest nations and preventing their citizens from gaining equal opportunity in life.
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
