As you may or may not know, The Garis Group are proud partners of B1G1-Business for Good.
B1G1 is a Social Enterprise and non-profit organisation with a mission to create a world that’s full of giving. Unlike conventional giving models, B1G1 helps small and medium sized businesses achieve more social impact by embedding giving activities in their everyday business operations to create unique Giving Stories. Every business transaction (and as a result, your everyday activity) can impact lives.
We believe that small businesses and small everyday transactions can change our world when we come together through the sense of giving and caring. Belonging to B1G1 puts the ‘WHY’ back into businesses and brings back a sense of greater meaning and purpose. B1G1 let’s you create that joy and share it…habitually.
Each month The Garis Group team choose a different project to support.
For the month of July, The Garis Group team chose to raise funds to give medication to nursery school children in Ethiopia.
Nurse Ethiopian nursery school children back to health by providing medicine. Many of these children lack access to basic medical care and are very susceptible to diseases and infections. Your contribution will aid in tackling such diseases and allow these children to grow up physically and healthily to become strong and independent adults.
We were proudly able to raise enough funds to provide medication to 1,000 children!
Our Impact So Far…
Our contribution for August:
For the month of August, we have chosen to raise funds to provide safe drinking water to a family in Cambodia!
Access to safe drinking water is the foundation for the issues of health, education, food, and livelihood. This water is provided via the means of a Bio-Sand Water Filter that lasts up to two decades or more and is able to provide for an entire family. A Bio-Sand Filter (BSF) is a point-of-use water treatment system adapted from traditional slow sand filters. Cambodia has over 9,000,000 cases of diarrhoeal disease, costing the nation $448 million a year. One of the easiest ways to combat poverty and disease is to provide access to clean water sources.
We will let you all know how many lives we were able to impact through this project in our August Contribution post.
