Transforming lives while we do business

At techsapiens, we care about the impact we create: for our clients, team members, partners and wider community. We believe that businesses like ours have the opportunity to dramatically impact the lives of those less fortunate.

Buy1Give1 (B1G1) is a platform that supports us to embed that belief into our everyday work. We link our routine work activities to powerful, high impact projects that make a real difference.

Some of the projects we are proud to have supported:

In this, we are guided by the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which set a global vision for peace and prosperity for people and the planet.

We are only getting started with our giving journey, and although it seems impossible to choose between goals looking at issues such as poverty, hunger, and clean water, we have decided to start our journey by focusing on the following sustainable development goals:

  • Good Health And Well Being
  • Affordable And Clean Energy
  • Industry, Innovation And Infrastructure
  • Reduced Inequalities

So how does it work?

It’s simple. Unlike conventional giving models, B1G1 helps us achieve more social impact by embedding giving activities in our everyday business operations to create unique ‘Giving Stories’. In each story, our regular business activities are linked with a giving action which creates direct impact for those in need:

  • Every time we complete a client project, we feed hot, nutritious meals to people in need in the UK.
  • Every time one of our invoices is paid, we feed a child at school in India.
  • Every time we complete a service ticket request, we give access to life-saving clean water to communities in Tanzania.
  • Every time a client renews a contract, we provide a business training programme in Malawi.
  • Every time we pay an employee, we give access to solar kits to rural families in Cambodia.

So simple, and yet so powerful.

By working with us, you become an integral part of our giving story and the impact we have in the world. It’s a win-win. We believe that doing good really is good for business – this is not a phrase we coined, but it really resonated with us.
