The world needs more. The slow incremental change set out in most sustainability plans won’t make a dent in the climate crisis we face or touch the sides of the inequality that threatens our society. And time is up for the purple prose of purpose that acts as a mirage to real progress.
Good Business is a sustainability and behaviour change consultancy, founded over twenty years ago. They have more than two decades of experience working with organisations to help them succeed by showing that they can make the world a better place.
Since 2013, Good Business has implemented the SKY Girls program, working with local market partners in various countries in Africa.
The SKY Girls programme, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, was established seven years ago in Botswana to help teen girls aged 13-18 in Ghana, Botswana, Kenya, Cote D’Ivoire and Zambia make, and stick to, the choice not to smoke. SKY doesn’t tell girls what to do, but instead strips the aspirational value out of smoking, and gives girls the tools and confidence to say no to tobacco when offered.
KCS’s relationship with Good Business started in 2020 with a review of their global child safeguarding policy, which led to robust changes in their policy and procedures since then and its ongoing.
And it doesn’t stop there.
In mid-2021, Good Business commissioned KCS to build the capacity of the local partners in the SKY markets. The training focused on providing the knowledge and skills that help the teams to put the policy into practice.
In December 2021, Good Business commissioned KCS once again to build the capacity of their central team focusing on child safeguarding and its implementation. And our efforts to build an effective safeguarding ecosystem for children will continue in the coming years.
