Kanpur Flowercycling Pvt. Ltd is a social enterprise that owns the brand Helpusgreen. Helpusgreen preserves the Ganges River by collecting the floral waste from temples and mosques that is dumped in the river and flowercycling (upcycling) it into patented fertilizer and incense sticks. This in turn provides livelihoods to manual scavenger families in Uttar Pradesh India. Since the Ganges is considered sacred in India cleaning the river not only provides employment to manual scavengers but eliminates the entrenched attitudes and discriminatory practices that still bind families to this degrading occupation. The community benefits from a reduction in disease predictable income social acceptance and most importantly dignity. The project is scalable and brings a hope to revive the Ganges.

Catalyze the growth of social enterprises in Greater China by building profitable models that will generate economic development along the Tibetan plateau.We are working to address the issue of domestic violence among women because of water scarcity. The root causes of that issue include Women don't accomplish their daily domestic tasks on time because they walk such a long distance to water site. Women spend a long time there and men become upset because they believe that they are the priority and they abuse their wives due to their delay in responding to their needs on time. Men get those beliefs from Rwandan traditional culture which has prioritized men and devalued the women. Men ignore the principle of gender balance and equality which makes them overwhelm their wives and children. Then they use their time for drinking and that is triggered sometimes by not having access to jobs or lack of skills to create jobs for themselves. Some men have full access to jobs or a way to create jobs but they don't they prefer to make their wives be responsible for everything. Our community faces poor hygiene linked to the limited access to clean water. That in turn results in malnutrition diseases stigma and polygamy among some couples (men cheat on their wives due to their poor hygiene). Jali is one of the rural sectors of Kigali city so we have a limited number of water points. Spending time walking long distances produces numerous of consequences that include children drop out of school because the children spend too much time at the water point and either are late or miss school. Some women lack enough time to manage other personal income generating activities causing economic dependency on men which also causes family conflict and infidelity. Other consequences include death orphans widows poor hygiene diseases prostitution theft criminality etc.
