As a social enterprise, at Kenshi we donate over half our profit to fund charities and worthy causes that make a real difference in the world.
As a young person growing up in a wealthy city like Melbourne I found that most people honestly want to help others, but the hectic demands of life can make it hard to give back regularly. 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. This means they can focus on the real work of making a difference instead of spending all their time raising money.
After starting off making candles in the garage at home we started to struggle to keep up with demand and are collaborating with the Chin refugee community to produce the candles in Melbourne. After fleeing from civil war in Myanmar, these amazing people are able to receive a vital income by producing the candles.
