We believe in the power of  GIVING

We donate a 5% of our income to our social project #ParafinaSocialProject. This project give access to primary school kids from a small neighborhood of Asunción – Paraguay.

Why Paraguay?

Parafina Social Project is based in Paraguay. This is mainly because of 3 reasons:

POVERTY

This situation makes it difficult for the paraguayans to be able to pay a proper education. Most of the times kids end up in the streets, in contact with drugs and violence instead of being at school learning.

FLOODS

The school where #ParafinaSocialProject helps is located in a slum in Fatima. A small town located in the outskirts of Asunción, just by the Paraguay river. When the rain is abundant, the river floods and covers the whole town, ruining people’s houses and everything that’s inside.

WASTE PROBLEM

When there is a flood, Access through the streets is impossible. Therefore, waste can´t be collected, and ends up floating through the streets; getting into the neighbours houses and polluting their drinking water. This means that all the waste that travels through the river ends up in the ocean.

HOW WE HELP?

Although education is free in Paraguay, its extremely hard to ensure a quality
education to most of the children, due to the lack of financial support to cover other school extras. Which are unfortunatey not covered by the government.

Thanks to #ParafinaSocialProject we ensure to support all extras, such as books, transportation, and meals making sure all our alumni receive a quality and stable education and have equal opportunities in the labor market.

Our Packaging

Our packaging is much more than just a box to store your glasses, it’s actually a union between our customers and our students.

Our ECO pencil

Every time a kid is sponsored, she/he will receive a pencil case, which is just the same as the packaging our customers receive when they purchase PARAFINA glasses and our eco pencil. Once it’s consumed, you can plant it and grow a tree. This way, you can help us reducing the carbon footprint created directly by our products.
