Kenshi Candles was started by Liam Foldi when he was just 14 years old. As a social enterprise, Kenshi Candles strives to help people in need and make a real difference in the world. This is why they donate over half their profit to charities and worthy causes making a difference. The key idea here is by using the money people are already spending on candles and gifts, it’s possible to raise funds for meaningful causes without the need for anyone to donate a cent.
As a young person growing up in a wealthy city like Melbourne, Liam found that most people honestly wanted to help others, but the hectic demands of life made it hard to give back regularly. Kenshi is all about enabling people that want to make a real difference to raise thousands of dollars without the uncomfortable task of asking for donations. This means they can focus on the real work of making a difference instead of spending all their time raising money.
Now, struggling to keep up with demand, Kenshi Candles are collaborating with the Chin refugee community in Melbourne to produce the candles. After fleeing from civil war in Myanmar, these amazing people are now earning much needed income by making the candles here in Melbourne.
