Social Enterprise verified by SEWF
We are delighted to be verified as a SEWF social enterprise by the Social Enterprise World Forum (SEWF). SEWF designed the verification process in consultation with partners around the world. It recognises existing regional and national social enterprise verification systems. SEWF builds on existing knowledge and expertise and provides accessible, affordable, and culturally responsive social enterprise verification in places. Obviously, the goal is to expand market access for all social enterprises globally.
This unique business model refers to any business venture created for a social purpose. Because, the aim of this model is to mitigate a social problem and generate social value. Pebblechild UK Ltd is expanding the toy market made by vulnerable rural women in Bangladesh. We are working with our sister organisation, Hathay Bunano to create employment opportunities for rural women based in Bangladesh.
Pebblechild will work with SEWF to progress our social mission and create a more positive impact in our society. Thus, we’ve already collaborated with a local NGO to create more positive environmental impact in forests and wetland areas in Bangladesh.

Social Enterprise and fair trade work so well together. They are both providing frameworks and tools to make the world a more fair place. We all want everyone in the world to have equal opportunity and to ensure that the ‘pie’ is fairly divided. Whilst the current world economic model has worked against this aim we are working within the concept of globalisation to bring these more fair concepts to the fore.
Finally, we want to thank all of you who support Pebblechild in every step of our journey. We couldn’t do the work that we do to reduce poverty in rural Bangladesh without your support. When you buy Pebble toys you make a measurable difference.
