Project Code: SEAwh601

The Global Interaction team in South-East Asia team has run a café in a bustling local city since 2012. The café is run, supporting the employment and training of staff from low socio-economic households in the local area and supporting behaviour change initiatives around better environmental management. It works in collaboration with the team’s other core initiatives. As the team works towards running a profitable hospitality business, all profits are intended to support the community development initiatives of other platforms, co-located with the café, including a Waste Bank and Children’s library.
This project covers training for local staff, location rent, a team building retreat, marketing, emergency staff assistance, eco-friendly equipment and some travel and transition needs as the former director trains and hands over the role to newer cross-cultural staff.
Funds raised by this project will secure the core work of this café for a further three years.
Gifts to this project are TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
