Since our inception in 2018, we have provided social entrepreneurs from all over the world with the resources they need to kickstart their business idea. Meet the social enterprises to whom we currently offer funding, mentoring, and business support.

Thunderbird Studios

Thunderbird Studios works with young indigenous addicts and human trafficking survivors in the far north of Canada. Project leader, John Lambert, is a third-generation First Nations wood carver. He owns a highly successful wood carving and teaching business, and is best known for selling commemorative carvings to government organisations. Youth participating in Thunderbird Studios are referred by existing First Nations education programmes, and 1) attend metal and woodworking classes facilitated by John and 2) receive wrap-around social services support. John’s existing business is the main profit-making component of the social enterprise.

Restore Enterprises

Restore Enterprises employs Australians with disabilities, injuries and mental illness to manufacture and restore furniture for sale. The goal is to nurture their employment skills in a secure environment, and later see them move into permanent work with other employers. Once the social enterprise is making profit through furniture sales, revenue will be put back into employing more people with disabilities. Down the track they also intend for some restored furniture to be donated to local safe houses, for the benefit of families escaping domestic violence.

Ridi Trading

Ridi Trading is an online trade arm to existing social enterprise Adili Africa. The online trade arm will enable extremely poor Nairobi artisans including weavers, carvers, painters and the like to sell their products online both locally and internationally. Pre Covid these artisans earned daily wages by selling art in markets. Markets no longer exist, thus there’s no legitimate way to make a living. Profits will be divided fairly between the artisans, and also go towards operating Adili Africa’s holistic health programmes.

Our Remainders

Our Remainders, formerly known as Aspargove, is a social enterprise designed to bring food security in New Zealand. Its purpose is to capture food leftovers and innovatively create them into something new. Specifically, it seeks to establish a high-end food product line solely made from rescued food (jams, chutneys, soups, etc.) that would otherwise end up in the landfill but cannot be used in food parcels. Profits from the social enterprise will help free people from food insecurity, hire people into jobs and lift them out of poverty, and help support reducing waste to landfill.
