Giving back – charities that can change lives

Categories: Eco, Health and wellbeing, LivingAugust 18, 2017 | Posted by Mukti

 

Social enterprises, Non-Government Organisations (NGO’s) and social movements are growing exponentially. This is exciting news but 30% of the world still lives on a $1 dollar or less per day. If you’ve placed an order with us recently, you may have noticed a new pop up box before you finish your purchase. We wanted to find a simplified platform to give back and allow our customers a choice in the process.

Weaving philanthropy into everyday purchases is one of the most powerful opportunities to create new funding streams and positively impact communities around the world. It’s great to finally get to a stage in business that we can now do so. It’s been a long held desire and something I’ve been working towards since the inception of Mukti Organics 17 years ago. 

"To give without expectation of reciprocity is a priceless gift. Love blossoms through the gracious act of sharing a kind gesture or a good deed to those less fortunate or in need. "Mukti   

We’re now on board with a charity platform called i=change that lets you decide which projects you'd like to donate to. It's 100% transparent. You can see exactly how much you've helped raise and where it's going – live! 100% of what we donate goes directly to your chosen project.

You’ll notice that most of the projects are committed to the development of women and girls, which was also a big pull for us. The empowerment of women and girls is one of the greatest drivers of social stability and economic growth globally and is one of the highest returns to unleash potential. i=change has curated a list of a small number of projects that meet a stringent criterion and are thoroughly screened (as we were) to participate. Funding fewer projects allows the funding to be sustainable, so NGO’s can scale their work responsibly, with the resources to measure and continuously improve.  

Why these projects, and how are they chosen?

The NGO partners have been identified to be among the best in their fields of development. Many of the projects have undergone field visits to understand how they operate and see their capacity and commitment to effect sensitive, community-driven change that empowers over the long term. 

Key drivers include: 

Every three months we’ll be rotating charities. I'm certain all of them will touch your heart strings as they have ours. These our three current projects that you can choose to donate to when you place your next order:

 

 Preventing trafficking In Nepal

Human trafficking is an ongoing threat to women and children, as families often must send their children away to school or for work. Poverty, frequent trade with India, high unemployment, a lack of awareness and education creates a high-risk environment. Adara works to prevent child trafficking in the remote Himalayan region of Humla in north-west Nepal. By providing a better education closer to home and raising awareness of child rights, children need not be sent away, significantly reducing their risk of being trafficked and keeping them safe. 

Feed Aussies in crises

Every year, two million Australians – almost 1 in 10 of us – seek food assistance. Around half of those are children. Many seeking food relief are also often the elderly, single parents and working families. Last year Foodbank distributed enough food to make 166,000 meals a day. Still, the charities who distribute this food report they are forced to turn away around 43,000 people every month due to lack of food supplies. We work to bridge this gap, so no one in this country has to go hungry. 

Protect a woman

Existing services cannot meet the demand for emergency crisis accommodation for women who are homeless or escaping domestic violence. More than 50% of women seeking shelter are turned away every night. Across Australia, this equates to over 50,000 women nightly. Women unable to access shelters are left vulnerable, disconnected from community and support networks. Women’s Community Shelters are dedicated to providing women and children with a safe place to stay.
