Achieving carbon neutrality is challenging for smaller organisations but a very important one to tackle if you are a values-led organisation that understands the significance of the carbon targets on every social issue covered by the NFP sector.
Zero Together is helping charities to achieve this goal. They offer a software based solution combined with advisory designed for cost and resource constrained small organisations.
Earbus Foundation works to reduce the incidence and impact of middle ear disease on Aboriginal and at-risk children to below the WHO benchmark (4%). Earbus travels with a Doctor, Nurse and Audiologist to create an innovative ‘one-stop-shop’ for ear health. “Regular treatment with ongoing management and continuity of care is integral to better health outcomes,” says Dr Lara Shur, co-founder. Earbus currently works at over 100 locations including the Pilbara, Goldfields, Perth Metro, Southeast and Southwest regions of Western Australia, partnering with Aboriginal Medical Services, schools, kindergartens, Royal Flying Doctor Service and other not-for-profits, such as Starlight Children’s Foundation. https://www.earbus.org.au
Unsilenced Voices takes an innovative approach to its humanitarian work, using blockchain technology in programs and fundraising. Founded in 2017, the US-based not-for-profit empowers survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking in multiple countries using financial assistance and community education. To do this, they’ve sought new approaches to both raise money for their programs and pay directly to abuse survivors. Founder Michelle Jewsbury says they are “revolutionising the humanitarian sector by integrating Web 3.0 technologies directly into our operations. For example, we accept cryptocurrency donations and have hosted NFT art competitions, enabling abuse survivors to earn income.” http://www.unsilencedvoices.org
