ME to WE is an innovative social enterprise that provides products that make an impact, empowering people to change the world with their everyday consumer choices.
Founded in 2009 to provide economic opportunity in WE Village communities and a sustainable source of funding for WE Charity, ME to WE has grown into a global force for good.
ME to WE provides two levels of benefits to support the work of WE Charity. Firstly, ME to WE creates employment and economic empowerment for over 2,000 people in WE Village communities around the world, including via artisanal and Fairtrade products and global service trips. This is critical to the WE Villages pillar of Economic Opportunity, and enables WE Charity to achieve economically sustainable development in countries around the world.
Secondly, ME to WE’s charter requires that it donates a minimum of 50 percent of its profits annually to WE Charity. For the past five years, ME to WE has donated on average over 90 percent of profits to WE Charity. The balance of funds are reinvested into the social enterprise to grow its sustainability, including its recent investment to launch Fairtrade chocolate to create economic opportunity in the WE Villages country of Ecuador. Since 2009, ME to WE has donated $20 million in cash and cost offsetting in-kind donations to WE Charity.
