Being a life changer

Who we support

Cambodia Forestry Project

A self-sustaining, social venture to generate income and grow industries, changing lives for the better. The venture supplies African mahogany trees to the local economy, creating jobs and building new businesses for a positive social impact. Each of the trees are grown from cuttings and sold on to individuals and organizations for their long-term income generation.

Cambodia is one of the most disadvantaged countries in the developing world and the venture is committed to partnering with its people and investing in its future. That’s why Mahogany was chosen for the project. It’s a high value tree, with mahogany furniture widely sought globally, ensuring benefits to Cambodians and Cambodia.

The potential to develop export timber markets and skilled local industries is massive. Mahogany cuttings are grown on land the venture secured, providing employment for local workers. Other economic opportunities arise from taking the raw timber and converting it into saleable commodities including furniture and flooring and wall panels for homes.

The venture is dedicated to supplying millions of trees and working with Cambodians to help improve their lives through the creation of sustainable employment and value added business.

REBBL

REBBL is a beverage company with a social conscience. It was borne out of a collaboration between global thought leaders to identify an innovative, sustainable market-based solution to prevent exploitation in the Peruvian Amazon.

The company’s organic beverages are made with herbs and other natural ingredients such as roots and extracts are sourced directly from local suppliers in communities in the communities that it works with. REBBL’s commitment to sourcing is demonstrated through its use of sustainably-farmed and organic products from people who provide fair labor practices.

Today REBBL is the number one selling organic beverage in the USA. Revenues this year are expected to reach $15.5 million, and REBBL is growing nearly 20 percent month-to-month. In terms of impact, REBBL now sources ingredients in 39 countries from cooperatives that benefit poor farmers.

REBBL is committed to fighting human trafficking through impact sourcing and supply chain in partnership with Not For Sale. REBBL donates 2.5% of revenue to Not For Sale to support communities vulnerable to exploitation and human trafficking.

Compassion

Compassion International exists as an advocate for children, to release them from their spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty. Children are often the hardest hit by poverty’s effects, yet they are the least able to do anything about their circumstances. Compassion takes a holistic approach to child development through sponsorship. Its Child Sponsorship Program connects one sponsor with one child living in poverty, so they can invest in that child’s future.

The organization has been serving children living in poverty since 1952 and today is helping to transform the lives of more than 1.8 million children in 25 developing countries around the world.

Some organizations focus on developing a community or a region. Compassion believes that one of the best ways to eradicate poverty is through the development of individuals. Changed environments may assist children but transformed children will inevitably change their environments.

Compassion runs a complimentary program, Critical Needs that provides customized solutions to issues facing children, their families and communities that prevent obstacles to children’s development.
