The Swedish companies, Kivra and Hogia, entered as new global partners in 2021. Their support enables us to accelerate the development of the business to achieve the Impact Goals for 2030; tenfold its social impact and reach 30 million children and young people, through support programs for social entrepreneurs. In addition to developing their positive societal impact through the partnership with us, Kivra and Hogia also challenge the traditional way of working with corporate social responsibility (CSR).The companies have chosen to give part of the revenue from their joint digital service for salary specifications directly to Reach for Change operations.
"We piloted our collaboration with Reach for Change in 2019 through the initiative Bridgit, a global network of female tech entrepreneurs, and it feels fantastic to now take the collaboration to the next level. What makes this partnership so strong is that we have a common ambition and view of how we work towards a more green and equal society; to use entrepreneurship and digitalisation as enablers. By combining our different competencies we can achieve greater change than by trying to do it separately."
- Anna Bäck, CEO of Kivra.
"Hogia and Kivra have a common core value in that digitalisation is one of the prerequisites for society to be able to develop in a sustainable and equal way. Thanks to our joint digitization project, we can invest in other initiatives that accelerate that development. More than two million Swedes receive a salary via Hogia's system, so the potential to "do good" is great."
- Bert-Inge Hogsved, the founder and CEO of Hogia
