At About Space we strongly believe in the transformative power of education to create a better world. Education not only equips young minds with knowledge but also empowers them to overcome challenges and achieve their dreams. To bring this vision to life, we have partnered with B1G1, a remarkable social enterprise and non-profit organisation with a mission to create a world full of giving. Together, we aim to make a positive impact on the lives of children across Australia by establishing education learning hubs.
What is B1G1, and How Does it Work?
B1G1, which stands for "Buy 1 Give 1," operates on a unique giving model that goes beyond traditional charitable methods. Instead of relying solely on donations or one-off contributions, B1G1 integrates giving activities into everyday business operations, creating a continuous and sustainable impact. This approach allows small and medium-sized businesses to make a real difference and contribute to various global projects aligned with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
One of the most innovative aspects of B1G1's model is the concept of "Recurring Impacts." With this approach, we can link our core business activities, such as product sales, customer interactions, or special milestones, to specific projects we wish to support. By doing so, our everyday business operations contribute to positive social change seamlessly.
The Sustainable Development Goals We're Targeting
Our collaboration with B1G1 aligns with several SDGs, with a primary focus on Goals 4, 8, and 9:
Goal 4: Quality Education - Ensuring inclusive and equitable education for all. By providing education learning hubs, we aim to improve access to quality education, especially for underprivileged children.
Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth - Promoting inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment, and decent work opportunities. Through our partnership, we contribute to uplifting communities and fostering economic growth in the regions where education learning hubs are established.
Goal 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure - Building resilient infrastructure, fostering innovation, and promoting sustainable industrialisation. Our efforts to provide computer education in Aboriginal communities contribute to advancing digital literacy and technological skills.
Making a Tangible Difference
As part of our commitment to B1G1's mission, we have already made a significant impact by providing 2257 days of computer education in Aboriginal communities across Australia. These learning hubs are equipped with modern technology and resources, enabling children to develop essential computer skills and access a world of information.
At About Space we are dedicated to making a meaningful difference in the lives of others, especially when it comes to education. Through our partnership with B1G1, we are excited to be part of a global movement that integrates giving into the heart of business operations. By providing education learning hubs and empowering young minds with computer education in Aboriginal communities, we are helping build a brighter, more promising future for children across Australia.
Together, let's continue making a positive impact on the world, one small act of giving at a time. Join us on this journey to create a world full of giving, where every business transaction is an opportunity to change lives and shape a better tomorrow.
