We’re social entrepreneurs with over a decade of experience in building an award-winning social enterprise. It’s taken that long because we’ve been committed to getting it right.
It all started in 2005, Clary Castrission OAM and Karyn Avery, two uni students from Sydney at the time, took a holiday to India that would change their lives forever. Upon returning to Sydney they naively believed if they could raise AUD$40 000 so they could build a school for a quarry community outside Bangalore. The first 5 years of 40K’s life was dedicated to building the school.
After the school opened, 40K set about changing the business model for 40K away from philanthropy towards social business. 40K changed both its education project focus in India so that it could become more scalable, as well as it’s funding model. Today 40K runs learning pods for 1,850 children that teach English for primary aged children through technology.
40K Globe was born for the reason that we wanted to pass on everything we have learnt about creating social change to university students so that they can approach social impact responsibly.
“We never changed the name 40K because it represents something that we never want to lose sight of creativity, drive and the power of youth.”
(Clary Castrission OAM, CEO)
