Redeem partners with Grow Movement

November 4, 2016

Redeem, the recycler of mobile phones, and Grow Movement, the charity that supports African entrepreneurs are working together to make a difference.

Jon Miller, Redeem's new UK Managing Director

 

Redeem will work to support the charity as a donor over the next year, and will be providing pre-owned smartphones and laptops so that the African entrepreneurs can connect with their consultants and improve business. The recycling company is also “carrying out internal fund raising events to raise money for Grow Movement” and in August 15 employees raised £2,000 (€2,247/$2,495) by climbing the three highest mountains in the UK in 24 hours. Redeem is transitioning from a purely UK-based recycling company into Europe’s “largest mobile phone re-commerce services business”.

Grow Movement is a non-profit organisation that supports African entrepreneurs by “matching them to leading business consultants” from around the world. These consultants volunteer their time and expertise over the internet in web conferences. The movement was founded in 2009, and has helped over 1,000 entrepreneurs improve their business, resulting in the creation of over 2,000 jobs in and around Uganda, Rwanda and Malawi. There are 1,100 business consultants who have volunteered their services.

Paul Adams, CEO of Redeem, said: “We’re really pleased that Redeem is partnering with Grow Movement which is a brilliant charity whose work delivers real and long-lasting change to those who benefit from its involvement. Seeing the value in pre-owned handsets is central to Redeems business, so we’re delighted that some of the handsets we’ve processed will now have new lives helping to support African entrepreneurs.”

Rick Kwan, Board Trustee of Grow Movement, added: “We are delighted to be forming this partnership with Redeem which will make a real and immediate difference to our work. These phones will be deployed immediately so the entrepreneurs involved with Grow Movement have a more reliable means of receiving the advice of our consultants, as well as a crucial tool for their business”
