Today, we are delighted to announce that The WildHearts Group has transformed over 2 million lives. This milestone marks a significant achievement for WildHearts, demonstrating the transformational effect of our global social impact. This achievement would not have been possible without our partners and supporters, whose collective contributions have propelled WildHearts to become a leading global social business.
At WildHearts we believe business can and must be a force for good. We know that our world faces multiple challenges, and if we have any hope of addressing them, business must play its part. Indeed, with its immense resources and talent, it is uniquely placed to do so.
That is why we operate at the intersection of business and social responsibility, to create a lasting impact on communities around the world. Whether it be through education, healthcare, sustainability or economic empowerment, our work fosters positive transformation on a global scale.
I am honoured to announce that WildHearts has transformed the lives of over 2 million people globally. In doing so, we have empowered some of the poorest communities around the world to work their own way out of poverty with dignity. This milestone is a testament to the collective power and commitment of our amazing customers and supporters. By partnering with WildHearts they have shown the change that is possible when business becomes a force for good.

Each business within The WildHearts Group addresses different business and societal needs, but at the heart of what we do, we empower individuals to create positive change.
One way we do this is by empowering women and girls in emerging economies. First, we financially empower women by giving them access to finance and enterprise training. Our education project then ensures children have access to essential tools for learning. Finally, our health programme provides girls with basic menstrual health products and education – ensuring once they’re in school, they stay there.
We are immensely proud that our micro banks have recently been awarded the prestigious 60 Decibels Top Impact Award for its outstanding contributions to financial inclusion and social impact. Through our impact programmes, WildHearts, and our customers, address more than 50% of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Our impact also drives positive impact in communities across The UK. We deliver a unique, engaging, and transformational education programme for school students. Through a combination of employability training, sustainability workshops, and mental health support, we are committed to empowering the next generation.
These learnings are showcased via two global events; The Micro-Tyco Innovate Competition and The WildHearts Global Youth Summit during COP. All programmes are delivered free for young people, regardless of their background.
