Kwela 1% Plan
We created our own 1% Plan to help increase funding of causes we care about. We hope you’ll care about them too.
Kwela donates 1% of its revenues—irrespective of profits made—to selected social and environmental causes (the causes we currently support are listed below). Clients direct these funds by letting us know how to split their 1% amongst the charities we’ve chosen to support at this time. It’s another way for us to work together and both get involved in something that strives to help make the world a better place. The current charities we support include (listed alphabetically):
Education Without Borders www.educationwithoutborders.ca
Education Without Borders is a Canadian charity whose mandate is to provide educational opportunities and school facilities in black communities in South Africa. Some current initiatives are: the design and implementation of a teacher volunteer program, the implementation of Math programs, the building of food gardens, and the establishment of photographic arts and dance programs.
Sea Shepherd Conservation Society www.seashepherd.org
Sea Shepherd is an international organization working to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species for future generations. Activities targeted include illegal whaling, the decimation of sharks worldwide for shark-fin soup, and overfishing of key species such as bluefin tuna.
SOS Children’s Villages B.C. www.sosbc.org
