BEYOND CSR

Genashtim is a for-profit social enterprise, subscribing to the Triple Bottom Line concept of Profits, People and Planet.

Profit
We believe that a for-profit model is more sustainable than the traditional deficit model. Furthermore, we want our people to be responsible and accountable for producing value for our clients, rather than to depend on charity. This accords them the dignity and independence that they deserve.

People
We are passionate about, and dedicated to, providing sustainable gainful employment for marginalized communities, focusing for the time being on Persons With Disabilities (PWD). Currently, 80% of our permanent staff are Persons With Disabilities. The unique thing about this is that most of our clients are not even aware of this. We are determined to prove that with the right opportunities, working environment and processes, Persons With Disabilities can be at least as productive as any other workers.

Planet
Our virtual work environment and online delivery of learning and services, minimises consumption of resources and production of emissions, and allows us to operate with a very small carbon footprint.
