We feel a strong mandate that our business is purposed to make a difference. Refresh capital is not about creating excessive wealth for ourselves, we believe in doing what we can to help others. This is why we exist and why we’re in business. Our Social Impact Program allows us to deliver on our WHY. Through child sponsorship, we are having great impact.
For every 12 months commercial cleaning contract signed, a child in need is sponsored. We have partnered with World Vision for our Social Impact initiative. This concentrated effort enables the Refresh Capital team to visit the community it is transforming to build relationships and offer further support through larger community development projects.
World Vision is dedicated to improving the lives and futures of the most vulnerable children in the world. They do this by partnering with communities at the grassroots, supporters like us across the world, civil society, corporates and the local and national governments to create an environment where all children are educated, healthy, protected and valued.
Their work is facilitated through Area Development Programmes (ADPs). This model of development involves long-term engagement in a geographical area (usually contiguous) to transform lives of children and communities. When an ADP is begun, they assess the needs of the community and create a collaborative plan based on the community’s vision for its children.
Together, they look at what’s already being done, what more can be done, and what they can do together. They work through programmes focused on ensuring access to nutrition, healthcare, water and sanitation, quality education and livelihood for the sustained wellbeing of children. Ensuring a secure childhood is paramount to their work, which they strive to fulfil by building communities that are safe and fit for children.
