The Zen Project
The premise of The Zen Republic is to create a full circle approach to helping this wonderful Community. I work with local Artisans to design products for The Zen Republic, thus creating more work for Adults on the Island.
30% of sales then go into ‘The Zen Project’ which is set up to assist the many Children + Families who need it the most. This fund will also keep the amazing local Teacher’s in work, through the utilisation of their skills in our after School + Adult Education programs.
Lastly, we then employ only local people to work within ‘The Zen Family’, fulfilling orders, managing inventory + Customer Service.
Primarily the areas we will be assisting first are to the far north of Ubud - up to Muntigunung on the North Eastern side of Bali.
For full transparency, we pay our Balinese Artisans properly in fair trade conditions. The remaining funds are for operational running costs + to employ more Balinese people within The Zen Republic team.
We have a full circle approach –
- We’re helping the local Artisans with more work.
- We help Children, Adults + Teachers within the Community through the roll out of our After School + Adult education programs.
- We help Balinese people who are currently out of work to work within The Zen Republic family.
A three tiered approach to helping the Community from every aspect.
Please follow our journey + behind the scenes @the.zen.republic
Love + Abundance,
