Orange, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/19/2015 -- Founder Kyle Kim-E has just launched a new socially-conscious business called KhamaiWare. It is a business based in Cambodia where locals are running a fully functioning shoe company. And for every pair of shoes sold, KhamaiWare gives a water filter to a family (one water filter gives ten people clean water). It all started after a trip to Cambodia, Kyle saw the need for change and the main source of troubles: not enough clean water. From there, Kyle created a business model that enables the Cambodians to work for the commodity they needed most; clean drinking water for their families. Kyle has supplied all of the resources to make this possible, now he just needs the funding for growth.
Kyle started a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Since the Kickstarter is the official launch of KhamaiWare, they are selling the shoes through the site. This particular campaign is gaining a lot of exposure due to its innovation in process. Instead of sending water directly to Cambodia, KhamaiWare is also cultivating business and entrepreneurship. These are skills that will be passed down from generation to generation and provide long-term sustainability for the community. His solutions show the ability to see far ahead for the well being of society.
He is filling three major needs within the Cambodian community:
- Jobs: Providing jobs that can meet the needs of families
- Education: Educating families about water safety, hygiene, and more
- Clean Water: For each product that they sell, they give a water filter to a family in need
With so much success and positive feedback, Kyle looks to expand his reach, but it will have to be through collaborative efforts. With the crowdfunding campaign he can leverage his great breakthrough to provide rewards to all of his funders.
