‘Give Back’

Our Trusted Partners

At Akira Grateful we honour and protect humanity by supporting charities worldwide. Not only do we share positive messages of gratefulness but we donate 100% of our financial year profits to people living with cancer in countries lacking in medical help, to the homeless, those in poverty and to refugees worldwide.

We work with trusted impact partners to ensure our donations go directly to those in need.

Some of the ways that we will donate and give back includes financial donations of profit to charities, physical charitable donations of products for raffles or silent auctions and general word of mouth promotions and specific projects in Australia and around the world.

Our concept that commenced in 2020 is to run as a profit business, investing back into developing more products and maintaining our inventory, at the end of financial year, the profits will be distributed to our impact partners locally and internationally.

Sister Works

Through work and entrepreneurship, SisterWorks’ mission is to support women who are refugees, asylum seekers or migrants so they can improve their confidence, mental wellbeing, sense of belonging and economic outlook. Our vision is an Australia where all migrant women are given the opportunities to become economically empowered.

The SisterWorks’ model is centred around empowerment, fostering a sense of independence and providing opportunities. SisterWorks’ brings together three key elements:

  • Learning by doing. SisterWorks’ engages migrant and refugee women in different roles in the organisation: as participants, entrepreneurs, volunteers or staff members. They learn by doing about how to work in Australia – by working and doing business together, within a supportive network and child-friendly environment.
  • Community. SisterWorks’ recognises and teaches the importance of community and the power of camaraderie amongst women. SisterWorks’ supports and uplifts its members to regain their ‘personal voice’ in Australia.
  • Financial incentives. SisterWorks’ shows women that they can add value and earn money, despite the barriers they have faced in gaining employment. This improves the women’s confidence in their skills and abilities. SisterWorks’ encourages women to explore options to earn money. This takes two forms: women are paid to produce SisterWorks’ label products whilst they learn new skills; and business mentoring to establish a micro-business. SisterWorks’ provides established platforms (retail stores and online) to sell those products.

CCC Foundation

The Courage Compassion Commitment (CCC) Foundation is a not for profit organisation based in Sri Lanka and Australia to provide services in the areas of cancer and mental wellbeing. CCC Foundation was founded in 2003 to assist the National Cancer Institute in Maharagama, Sri Lanka (NCI) to provide support for children fighting cancer, today the foundation has expanded to CCCline.

The aim of CCCline is to improve the emotional well being and mental health of people by listening to their concerns and putting them in touch with their inner strengths as well as other support services so they can manage and overcome the difficulties in their lives.

Recently the foundation introduced Let’sTALK, a program designed to help Families, Schools, Universities and Workplaces in reconnecting and rebuilding through the power of conversation. Let’sTALK provides a structured approach to open communication to support and empower anyone through their challenges. Challenges does not only have to be mental illness related, but also everyday challenges that can escalate to bigger ones.

Let’sTALK & Walk is another initiative to encourage conversations and to stop the escalation of small concerns becoming bigger issues including mental illness and even suicide. It’s an opportunity to talk and walk our way to wellness.

If you’re interested in partnering with us please reach out to our team.

Many thanks.
