Changing the world at 16!

Liam Foldi is 16 and created Kenshi Charity Candles as a Social Enterprise to make it easier for any person, club, school or charity to raise money easily. As a social enterprise he donates over half his profit to fund charities and worthy causes that make a real difference in the world. Kenshi is about enabling people that want to make a real difference to raise thousands of dollars without the uncomfortable task of asking for donations. Struggling to keep up with demand, he is collaborating with the Chin refugee community in Melbourne to produce the candles. After fleeing from civil war in Myanmar, these amazing people are now earning much needed income by making the candles here in Melbourne. https://kenshicandles.com/pages/our-story

urlpreviewbox url= “Blue is an environmental movie with a difference. It captures the disaster that is microplastics and how they are killing our oceans and us. However it’s upbeat about what each of us can do. At the end of the movie there was a simple and effective presentation about what each of us could do the next day, and every day to remove plastic from our lives. No preaching just simple, actionable and repeatable actions. Worth going to watch and learn. https://bluethefilm.org/”

Visit Cambodia and help to educate children

Cambodia has a chronic lack of an educated professional workforce to provide the teachers, trained nurses, accountants, engineers, doctors and administrators needed to build an economically and socially healthier and stronger country. Opportunity Cambodia is helping to change this situation At the end of 2018 their first group of high school students passed the National Exam and became eligible to apply to university. This is an impressive achievement for young people who come from the poorest families, where parents are illiterate and have little hope for the future. You can donate to help, connect them with a school or volunteer. Volunteers need to have tertiary education or training, energy,  imagination,  adaptability, commitment AND be over the age of 18, want to stay at least one month and be happy to live during the week in a rural village https://opportunitycambodia.org.au/get-involved/

A women-only bus to prevent violence against women on public buses in PNG

A study by UN Women found that more than 90% of women had been assaulted on public buses in Port Moresby, PNG. This high rate of violence was keeping women home from work and girls from school. In 2016, the Meri Seif Bus was introduced. This is a free women only bus which works on so many levels. It educates women about sexual violence, consent, street violence and women’s empowerment while they sit on the bus. It creates a safe space for them to share stories and views. It offers referral pathways for women in need. All this happens whilst enjoying a safe ride on the bus to their final destination. The program has been expanding with new buses in both Lae and Port Moresby. https://unwomen.org.au/resource/meri-seif-bus-factsheet/

They take unused clothing and shoes from high-quality Australian fashion retailers and deliver it to less fortunate people who are in need, while saving new clothing from going directly to landfill. https://www.threadtogether.org/
