About

a little about our story...

Stefania Antoniadou

Co-founder

I have always been passionate about exploring the ways in which people can promote social progress through their behaviour. Up until now, I have been focusing on charities, people's giving habits, and the donor experience.

Honouring my academic background in Business and Ethics, I have now embarked on a journey to explore the social impact space. I want to know why some people decide to build, work for, and support social enterprises. More importantly, I want to know why aren’t more people doing so.

In this podcast series we will be addressing these questions, and many more. So if you, too, are feeling curious, please listen in!

Rupal Shah

Co-founder

In 2010, I launched my own non-profit initiative called Street Release - using dance to help underprivileged children in Kenya cope with some of the social and emotional problems they faced. I had a mindset of operating and running it under the traditional charity model - raise funds, recruit as many volunteers and execute the projects.
After 2 years and armed with an ambition to expand our efforts, we soon hit numerous obstacles that became very difficult to overcome. After months on end, I knew it was time to stop relentlessly persisting. We needed to adopt and entirely new model if we were to going to succeed. But this is where I was stuck. What new model? How would it work? And here was born the desire to start this podcast series, a journey to finding answers, inspiration and new ideas directly from those leading the way in this sector.

I hope you enjoy listening to our interviews and gain insights beneficial to your own journeys.
