There is a lot of inequality in the world. Issues that people in the Western world struggle with do not compare to the problems people elsewhere in the world are confronted with on a daily basis. But closer to home, inequality also exists and not all people are granted the same opportunities. FlyWheel Business helps companies improve innovation and create business opportunities. Creating opportunities for people and organizations with fewer possibilities forms the basis of our “One-for-One” program.
For each project we carry out for companies like yours, we donate part of the revenue or time to people in less fortunate circumstances: “One-for-One”. With this program we either contribute financially to business initiatives that create opportunities for the underprivileged, or we dedicate our time, knowledge and expertise helping others. By supporting Worldreader FlyWheel Business helps create opportunities for those that need it most.
