Our Charity partnerbecause an ethical shop alone isn't enough to end global poverty...
About the Charity
When starting The Sol Company we thought it wasn’t enough just to create a business that supported ethical purchasing but we also wanted to give back a portion of our profits to some of our favourite charities. Our current charity partner is Clarenville Connect, a group that came together in 2014 in Clarenville, Newfoundland with a desire to make a difference in the developing world. Their search led them to World Vision and its sustainable development model which promotes a hand-up and not a hand-out. Clarenville Connect partnered with World Vision who connected them with an area in Honduras. Through child sponsorships and fundraising efforts they are empowering the residents to become self-sufficient. They have spent the last 4 years building relationships with the people of Honduras, learning about their needs and helping them to achieve their goals. A team from Clarenville Connect has visited the area twice, spent time with the sponsored children and seen firsthand the fish farms, family garden, honey farm, school computer lab and many other projects that are helping the residents become self-sustaining.
