We Encourage Oy Ltd, a social enterprise, is on a mission to build a peer-to-peer impact platform to

  • empower women and girls to get an education instead of ending up in a forced marriage

  • create a global community to support and protect them

  • build an incentivizing system for families to educate their daughters instead of forcing them into marriage.

 

What?

We are a service provider creating an ecosystem between impact makers, small-scale fundraisers, NGOs, partner companies and, of course, girls and women who need support to live the life they want. 

We provide tools and processes to help these small NGOs run their operations in an efficient way to create a long term impact. These tools and processes are our requirements for the NGOs to get access to our services.

Our business model is commission based. We offer a community and a place to follow up the cause you are impacting on. We take a predetermined percentage from the payment made, and the rest is given to your chosen cause.

Everything is transparent and traceable.

 

Why we are not a non-profit charity or an association?

We are creating a model, that offers an opportunity for our customers to make an impact and also get something in return, instead of just donating money. We operate as a fundraising agents for small NGOs and small-scale fundraisers,  this frees up their time from money collecting to actual doing. Our service is free for the NGOs, we take the commission straight from the donation. We also offer reporting and follow up tools for the NGO, to make sure everything is transparent and traceable. 

Our customers doing monthly impact gets access to an online community where they are able to follow the money, what is done with it and follow the girl’s educational path. We provide communal feeling and openness for our customers and girls we help. One time impactors are able to follow how the cause is progressing through our social media channels. 

We do not believe in giving alms, because we understand the psychological aspect of one being superior to another when it comes to charity. We instead show these girls, that we value them, believe in their right to be educated. For that reason we encourage these girls by providing incentive so that their education is made possible. 

Our business model is built around openness and our customers are able to see how much is spent in running our business. We believe that with the right kind of business model, values and mindset we are able to create a business that makes an impact and is profitable.
