Who We Are

BEAGIVER is a social enterprise that provides individuals and organisations opportunities to make socially responsible impact in a meaningful way.

Starting out as a community activity among friends who wanted to give back in 2013, the enterprise was incorporated as BEAGIVER VENTURES INC. in 2017. We started by selling high quality school bags with ‘buy one, give one’ business model. For every purchase made by a customer, another bag is given to to an impoverished school kid in the Philippines through our social arm  BEAGIVER Dreams Project. Currently, customers can already choose to only purchase the ‘give bag’ that goes to a beneficiary school kid in need.

We have since diversified our product offerings to include clothing and other items that helps causes in the communities. Other key activities of the enterprise are fair production in socially – challenged communities where we manufacture our products and merchandise requirements of our corporate clients, bag drives targeting impoverished school kids, and events for social awareness in the Philippines in partnership with like-minded companies and organisations. 

With social impact at the core of what we do, and aside from the impact embedded in our value chain, our program has now expanded from giving of school bags with raincoats to providing economic benefits to partner communities through livelihood programs, clean water source in remote villages, school boats to carry school teachers to reach distant islands, solar lamps for off-grid communities and scholarship program for underprivileged but hardworking students. All these are funded from the 25%  of the enterprise’s net profit.

Our Story

“I walked 10 kilometers to school every day. Walking down the beaten path surrounded by mountains, I saw limitations everywhere. I had dreams- but whenever my books, notebooks and pen roll down the hill or get soiled in the mud because the plastic I used as a school bag ripped open, I am once more reminded of my reality.

But one day, my distant relative came to visit and gave me a hand-me-down school bag. Because someone thought about me and believed in me, I started to believe in myself too. I carried my bag with renewed confidence, more inspired to study well and go for my dreams.

Having experienced the love and generosity of the other people in my life’s journey, I am now continuing the culture of generosity through BEAGIVER, a social enterprise I founded which champions education for the impoverished school kid in the Philippines.

With your purchase, you have chosen to make a difference. As you walk with your backpack, a child somewhere in the Philippines is walking empowered and inspired, smiling with a renewed sense of worth, carrying with him the other pair of your bag that’s starting to fill up with dreams again.

Thank you for your help in building this nation and welcome to our community of givers! Continue the culture of generosity wherever you are.”
