Providing Support with a Global Reach
IncentiveWorks appreciates the importance giving back to our local and global communities. Free, safe and quality education is the right of every person. However, sixty million girls’ around the world have been denied formal education due to social, economic, legal and political factors.
In 2012, fifteen-year old Malala Yousafzai was shot in Pakistan by a masked gunman leaving her in critical condition – all for going to school. She survived and in 2013 launched Malala’s Fund, a Global Advocate for Girls’ Education supporting girls’ education projects in the most vulnerable communities in the world.
Since Malala’s Fund was founded in 2013 it has gained global recognition and inspired the world to donate.
IncentiveWorks donated $8,125.00 CDN to Malala’s Fund in 2016.
Currently, there are 663 million people on our planet that do not have access to clean water. Their only source is a polluted swamp, where women and children travel up to four hours a day just to get water.
In 2006, Scott Harrison (Keynote speaker at IncentiveWorks in 2012) took an interest in the world wide water crisis and founded charity: water. Over the last 9 years, and through the support of hundreds of thousands of generous supporters, 19,819 water projects have been funded in 24 countries providing access to clean water for 6.1 million people.
Since 2012, IncentiveWorks has been supporting the efforts of charity: water. In 2014 it was decided that $25 from the purchase of every Closing Party ticket would be donated to charity: water. There are currently a total of four projects being funded through the generosity of our attendees. Of these four projects, two have been completed.
