HOW DO WE CONNECT BUSINESS AND HUMANITY?
The profit made from this social enterprise, besides reinvesting it in our own activities and programs, and direct involvement, empowerment and employment for returnees, is aimed to support numerous other programs dedicated to various vulnerable populations, improvement of their social, and wider, human rights and access to needed social/health services, not enough supported through governmental or donors’ community.
Members of sensitive groups often don’t have enough information about their social rights, nor the access to social help and services, namely education, health care and housing.
As a Social Enterprise, our aim is not just maximizing the profit. We want to apply commercial strategies to improve human rights and wellbeing. This means as well to tackle social problems as a business. Certain percentage of our surplus will be transferred and donated to vulnerable population, either through donations to those who provide them with the necessary services, either directly helping endangered individuals and families.
