Alive and Kicking

Alive and Kicking sets up and supports not-for-profit social enterprises in Africa. Through the manufacture of sports balls in Kenya, Zambia and Ghana, we generate employment for adults, raise awareness about preventable disease such as HIV and malaria among young people, and provides robust and affordable balls for disadvantaged children. We create fairly paid jobs, and donate sports balls to disadvantaged children.

Bella Kinesis

For every item Bella Kinesis sells, we provide one month’s business education for a woman in rural India. We do this through our partnership with the Mann Deshi Foundation. Exercise not only makes women physically stronger, but also leaves them feeling more confident and empowered. We wanted to give this same feeling to other women by helping them to start their own businesses. Mann Deshi teaches women crafts, accountancy and management skills so they can become self-sufficient.

Sniffy Wiffy

Our mission is to increase the number of ladies and gents who know about – and self-check for – the signs and symptoms of breast and testicular cancer. Our packaging is labelled with simple guides showing the steps involved in performing breast or testicular checks in order to spot any potential early (vital) signs of cancer. Such checks being best performed when your skin is slightly slippery, or after a bath or shower. We hope that our products act as a gentle reminder to perform a monthly check – five minutes that could save a life.
