ProPortion seeks a world with a fair proportion & distribution of wealth & wellness.
We believe a social responsible private sector can be a great driver in achieving this, through including the poor in their business; as consumers, producers, micro-entrepreneurs.
ProPortion has emerged out of a design company. The fact that designers have the power to visualise ideas and solutions makes it very effective in communicating about solutions and creating engagement to realize social business. More info: www.proportionenterprise.com
