“Apolis, which translates as “global citizen,” is a living and breathing social enterprise that equips and empowers people through opportunity instead of charity. Apolis co-creates products with manufacturers and directly allows the market to determine the future of each item we produce. It is a hands-on model to provide people access to opportunity. We call it “advocacy through industry.” “

It works with NGO’s in Uganda, Bangladesh and Nepal and supports local industry creating self-sufficient communities.
Products include outerwear, shirts, pants, accessories and bags… e.g. Philanthropist tote
