We don't know how lucky we are.
It is interesting as I live in my two worlds: New Zealand and Africa, that both have elections in 2017 yet the practicalities of each are extremely different.
The head of the Kenyan Election Board was tortured and murdered a week before the Kenyan elections. People in both countries want the same thing, peace and security yet the reality of achieving that is so very different for each country.
The necessity for and enormity of achieving fair elections in Kenya is essential. I search for ways that I can support those living under the threat of volatility in Kenya and take comfort in the creation of Essence of Humanity products that support those people.
Socially conscious and 'for purpose' businesses enable everyone to play their part in global poverty. From the day of your purchase of our Essence of Humanity products to every morning and night when you nourish yourself and use them, you are playing your part in alleviating the injustice of global poverty.
It's exciting, and it's important.
