Good for Life’s BetterLife™ Program

The very nature of our business has exposed us to people and places the world over, who are in desperate need.

Good for Life is committed to improving the lives of those who live and work in the communities they do business. Our core efforts are currently focused on Ethiopia and helping install necessities such as clean drinking water and improving lives through their Business Mentorship Program.

At Good for Life, we see the BetterLife™ program as a platform for empowerment, where we as a company provide support, expertise, education, labor, or financial assistance to those in need of a helping hand.

By partnering with Good for Life and the BetterLife ™ program, you will be joining a growing community of businesses committed to uplifting local communities and their customers. The BetterLife ™ program is a vehicle for ensuring a better today and an even brighter tomorrow for all stakeholders.

We take Life at Good for Life seriously. As humans, we are diverse, complex, and varied, and it is for these reasons, the word ‘Life’ can mean so many things.

While we are continually striving to innovate and supply our partners with a range of products, our understanding of what encompasses ‘Life’ informs the Good for Life strategy

BetterLife™ Program: Water Projects

Edget Orphanage, Addis Ababa

Edget is one of the small orphanages in Addis Ababa. It is a private orphanage, and it accommodates around 30-40 babies and toddlers. Access to clean water supply and sanitation in Ethiopia is amongst the lowest in the entire world. With high levels of bacteria, viruses, cysts, and heavy metals in the water supply, we wanted to provide clean water to the children of Edget. Suitable for Life funded and installed a water purification unit to provide clean water to the whole orphanage, removing the risk of children’s getting preventable waterborne diseases.

Shamida Children’s Home, Addis Ababa

Shamida Children’s Home, Addis Ababa

Shamida Children’s home in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, cares for disadvantaged and orphaned children. They also employ nannies who suffer from Fistula. Fistula patients need to drink 4 to 5 liters of water per day. Merely providing the clean drinking water for the nannies and the children was costing the orphanage (US$) $6,000 per year. Good for Life funded and installed two water purifiers at the orphanage providing safe drinking water to the nannies and children and saving the orphanage (which gets no government funding) (US$) $30,000-40,000 over the next five years.

BetterLife™ Program: Business Mentorship

Etu Flower

Two young sisters from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Amele & Ehete, had an idea to help people feel connected to family and friends through the COVID-19 pandemic by sending gift boxes of flowers and chocolates. They had also had their financial struggles due to work becoming more and more scarce. Loss of income impacted their family; therefore, they devised the idea that it could help them support themselves and make others happy through their efforts. Their concept had the potential to grow into a significant income to help support their family.

Up until now, they had been reconstituting old shoe boxes and wrapping them with paper as the flower boxes, but as they wanted to scale and wanted a more professional approach to help build their brand. They faced issues sourcing products at a competitive price in Ethiopia and the initial capital investment in the boxes. Adam Elson at Good for Life had offered the initial investment and to source and ship the gift boxes to give to free of charge to help them get a head start at becoming self-sufficient into the future. It fits nicely into Good for Life’s commitment to empowering women to become independent and autonomous. Adam will continue to mentor Amele & Ehete with weekly calls as they hope to grow their brand and scale up and employ other women to help them shortly. Good for life is committed to improving lives and making their efforts good for all life.
