Our commitment to the community is demonstrated through Optimism’s ‘Profit for a Purpose’ policy. A percentage of our yearly profit is donated to local and international humanitarian and pro-social causes. In 2016 we donated to a selection of small business owners in developing nations through the Kiva.com website. These donations will help those individuals grow their businesses, support their families and provide employment for others in their community.
Optimism NZ is working with NGO Flame Cambodia to help the women in Cambodia’s slums to start and grow their own micro- businesses - so that they can feed their families and communities. Watch the video to join Sussan Ockwell as she goes into the slums to find out how Optimism can help, and discover how a little goes a long way in Cambodia.
