HOW IT ALL BEGAN

The idea for PushPullGive came about in 2016. The three co-founders of PushPullGive, Razif, Herzy, and Konrad, discovered during their weekly outdoor workouts that they shared a common passion for fitness and helping children and youths in need.

 

It was during their research on organisations to support that they came across Tiny Toones, a Cambodian non-profit organisation that provides shelter and education for Phnom Penh’s street kids.

 

Razif, Herzy and Konrad decided to visit Tiny Toones to learn more about the work of the organisation and understand how they could be supported.

 

Visiting the centre in the Cambodian capital was an eye-opening experience for the three guys. They realised how fortunate they were to have grown up in developed countries. The children at Tiny Toones rely on the enthusiasm and the good work of the non-profit organisation for their education.

 

Back in Singapore Razif, Herzy, and Konrad developed a plan to help Tiny Toones raise funds through various fitness activities for its centre’s capital expenditure.

 

The three ran fitness bootcamps, yoga and dance classes over three months in locations such as MacRitchie Reservoir and Botanic Gardens and successfully raised SGD5,000 for Tiny Toones from participants.

 

This pilot project woke the enthusiasm of the three guys to help children and youths in need. As a result Razif, Herzy, and Konrad has formed PushPullGive, a social enterprise through fitness and social outreach.

OUR TRAINERS

HOW ARE WE A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE?

PushPullGive is part of a growing community of social enterprises. These are companies that apply business principles and practices to achieve social good. The idea is to reinvest financial returns into a social cause, to create employment and other economic and social benefits for marginalised groups.

 

PushPullGive’s mission is to improve the quality of life of underprivileged children and youths in Singapore and in the region through fitness activities that we conduct for individuals and organisations. Through the revenue of our business, PushPullGive is able to organise free workout classes for the marginalised youth and children that otherwise would not have the means to take part in the fitness culture. This creates a meaningful social impact for our beneficiaries and increases their feeling of inclusion in society.

 

Furthermore PushPullGive’s long-term plan is to launch a Social Gym by 2018 that is open for everyone and provides employment opportunities for marginalised young adults and ex-offenders, giving them a chance for a career in the fitness industry.
