One Water is a leading ethical drinks brand that donates its profit to fund life-changing water projects in the world’s poorest communities. A child in the developing world dies every 20 seconds due to lack of clean drinking water. One Water has already donated €18 million which has helped change the lives of over 3.2 million people. Find out how we plan to increase this to €25 million and 5 million lives changed by 2020.
Vita believes that the best way to combat hunger and climate change in East Africa is to support families as they build sustainable livelihoods. This means ensuring that they have food, energy and water security while reducing the drudgery of collecting water and sticks, particularly for women and children. Liberating families from drudgery allows women to allocate more time for farming or earning money and keep their children in education longer. As a team, we have developed core skills in these areas as well as critical collaborations to ensure that these communities have access to the best knowledge and information available.

EcoExist - Reducing conflict and fostering coexistence between elephants and people.
The team finds and facilitates solutions that work for both species. Our approach connects science with practice. Our mission is to support the lives and livelihoods of people who share space with elephants while considering the needs of elephants and their habitats.
we empower farmers with practical, affordable, and effective tools to deter crop-raiding and reduce conflicts with elephants. In the long-term, we collaborate with local, national and international groups to create an enabling environment for a range of policies and programs that tackle the root causes of conflict.
Moyee Coffee Ireland - Moyee is not your average coffee company. While we do make awesome coffee (our beans are in the top 5% of all beans in the world!) our goal is to radically change the way coffee is grown, roasted and delivered.
The global coffee market is worth over $100 billion a year yet 90% of coffee farmers still live on less than $2 a day while most coffee growing countries rely on international aid to survive. The problem is that 100% of coffee is grown in the coffee belt but 99.9% of the coffee we drink leaves the belt as green un-roasted beans meaning all of the value from coffee is exported overseas.
But at Moyee we're disrupting the business model. By roasting our coffee in Ethiopia we can keep more jobs and skills in Ethiopia and put more incomes and profits in the hands of those who contribute most towards the coffee chain.
We call this FairChain. A shared value partnership where 50% of what you pay for your coffee will go back to the country of origin.
ReCreate is an award winning social enterprise making art materials and educational supplies affordable and accessible to every sector of the community for all kinds of creative purposes. This is achieved by salvaging clean, reusable materials from businesses and distributing them to members in unlimited quantities. The project is based around the concept known as Creative Reuse which encourages the public to reuse materials on an industrial scale that would normally be sent to landfill or for recycling, for all manner of creative and inventive purposes.
At Talent Force we connect ambitious Irish SMEs with highly experienced professionals who are seeking an element of flexibility in their work life. Not every job need or can be the generic 9am-5pm.
Our focus is recruiting professionals who seek meaningful part time work or are returning to the workforce, have raised families. Our candidates are unique in their professionalism, focus & impact.
Recent part time & flexible jobs we have recently worked on include a part time CEO, financial controllers, digital marketers & business development. We believe that flexible hiring can be better hiring for SMEs.
