Our mission is to economically empower women and girls across the world by addressing the critical daily challenges of time poverty, self worth and cleaner, healthier cooking. We are about finding, supporting and innovating culturally relevant solutions to life's challenges.
The Wonderbag business model is based on a buy and donate model. For every retail purchase of a Wonderbag, a donation is made to Wonderbag.org to subsidize Wonderbags and host WonderFeasts in vulnerable communities around the world.
IT ALL STARTED WHEN...
Sarah Collins couldn't sleep. It was 2008, and rolling blackouts had darkened the city of Johannesburg. There were severe, ongoing energy shortages throughout South Africa, and everyone was affected. Cities and towns, hospitals and schools—all had power only once every several days, and then only for a few hours. It was during one of these blackouts that Sarah leapt out of bed at two in the morning and woke up her roommate. "I've got it!" she said. "I know how I'm going to change the world." Full story here.
We are a global organization. Our goal is for every household to have a Wonderbag -from North America to South Africa and everywhere in between. We currently have two production facilities in Africa.
We believe that inter-connectedness of social solutions is imperative in creating long-term sustainable solutions in areas of most need. We believe in building partnerships and fostering integrated solutions that are embedded locally. Sincere gratitude to our amazing partner support network! See a few of our partners below.
