The Necessity for Social Enterprise: A Walk Through Outreach
Speaker: Amira Nimerawi, Palestinian Medical Relief Society Consultant
How can existing outreach and social enterprise play an important role in your business? How can it drive enough impact to expand opportunities and growth within your own community and business?!
Join us as we talk with Amira Nimerawi about how her initiatives to raise funds with Volunteer Palestine and become a beacon of change within the community inspired her to expand her business into a social enterprise and grow exponentially! Amira believes that even grassroots actions create momentum and catalysts for long-term change. With consistent efforts come great rewards. Ultimately, she would like nothing better than to see women all over the world become agents of change within their communities and change the economic trajectory in our favor!
About Amira Nimerawi
Amira Nimerawi, the owner and founder of Ballareco, is the daughter of a Palestinian refugee and was raised in Australia. Growing up in Sydney, she became acutely aware of how the right to an education empowers and provides opportunity that is more often than not, unavailable to the forcibly displaced. And most importantly, unavailable and fragmented, to the children of Palestine living under military occupation.
While BallareCo started in response to her personal need for a comfortable, but chic, everyday shoe, Amira’s intention was for it to evolve into a vessel of empowerment for Palestinian girls and women. With education, personal development, and industry at the heart BallareCo initially partnered with UNWRA, Mothers of the Holy Land, and Aida Camp as the main recipients of profits from sales, which snowballed into a collaborative and deeply personal working relationship.
Her later volunteer work with the Palestinian Medical Relief Society and Volunteer Palestine fueled and strengthened the social impact nature of her work. Amira now works with Volunteer Palestine as a consultant, while continuing to seek out and partner with social enterprises and individuals who share the Ballare way: to make small changes that eventuate into social impact, one step at a time.
