What makes it a social enterprise?

In addition to giving COURAGE backpacks to student Haiyan survivors, the bags are manufactured by workers of the communities impacted by the Haiyan hurricane. Taclob is committed to creating jobs for these affected groups, and also provides supplementary training to help workers develop new skills.

Profits from COMPASSION backpack sales are also re-invested in order to hold workshops on disaster preparation for the communities.
