Helping Language Communities Create Their Own Books
The Bloom Library provides an easy-to-use digital publishing platform that a local language community can quickly learn and generate books from to be used in classrooms and literacy groups. The tool solves a key problem that many communities face: They want to advocate for literacy in their local language but don't have enough books to help their community members practice what they are learning. Currently the platform has 5000 books in over 200 languages. It supports PDF, ePub, audio books and video. The platform facilitates Sign Language diglots, picture dictionaries, leveled/decodable readers and complex non-roman scripts.

Changing the world at 16!
Liam Foldi is 16 and created Kenshi Charity Candles as a Social Enterprise to make it easier for any person, club, school or charity to raise money easily. As a social enterprise he donates over half his profit to fund charities and worthy causes that make a real difference in the world. Kenshi is about enabling people that want to make a real difference to raise thousands of dollars without the uncomfortable task of asking for donations. Struggling to keep up with demand, he is collaborating with the Chin refugee community in Melbourne to produce the candles. After fleeing from civil war in Myanmar, these amazing people are now earning much needed income by making the candles here in Melbourne. https://kenshicandles.com/pages/our-story
