Xen-do Takes Steps To Help Fight Poverty In Senegal

Hello Xen-Do Community,

Xen-Do Takes Steps To Help Fight Poverty In SenegalHere at Xen-Do Martial Arts, we believe in giving back! We have been working hard behind the scenes to organise a charitable donation of our old Zen-do Branded stock. Some of you may remember our old logo or you may still be rocking the Vintage Zen-do Kit!

When we transitioned to our new Xen-Do Branding we were left with a surplus of 300+ items worth £5000. We knew that a charity would benefit from such a large donation!

With help from our Supplier Fitup Sport Limited, we approached charities in the U.K and Honduras before discovering Frip Ethique.

Frip Ethique is an Oxfam-run social enterprise in Senegal. Most of the workers are women, who sort and sell clothes donated to Oxfam to local market traders.

It’s a great way of making sure donations make the most money possible. And it’s also a great way of enabling people to earn a living.
The profits are also invested in Oxfam’s work fighting poverty in Senegal. Over 500 small traders buy stock from Frip Ethique and run their own businesses.

 

 

“Working at Frip Ethique has changed my life. The work is good. We work together; we laugh together.
It’s changed everything.” – Charlotte Lopy, clothes sorter

This donation will be making its way to Senegal over the next few weeks.

We will keep you posted with the progress!

Ouss!
