Trigger a chain reaction with your ESG strategy: Create opportunities for people around the world

Share with your community on LinkedIn now:

For us, it’s not just about planting forests. Working with us creates opportunities for people all over the world.

This is the story of Owais, a freelancer whose life was transformed by our holistic approach.

Owais started out as an accountant in the small town of Miawali in Punjab, Pakistan. Although he worked long hours every day, he struggled to support those who depended on him: his wife, his three children and his parents.

All that changed when he met Chris, Click A Tree’s founder. Find out exactly what happened and how your company offers people like Owais a life-changing opportunity.

Investing in people benefits everyone

Although Owais has known about the Internet for some time, he only got access to it two years ago. He realized that he had a unique opportunity to find work outside his small town. The beginning was not easy, because at that time Owais only spoke Urdu – in order to find work, he had to learn English.

He persevered, learning English and IT basics while continuing his work as an accountant. His breakthrough came when he registered as a freelancer on the Fiverr portal, where he offered his services as a graphic designer. That’s where he met Chris.

How our holistic approach makes a difference

Chris immediately recognized Owais’ desire to learn and gave him the chance to develop the skills he needed for his new career. This meant giving Owais more time to complete tasks, mentoring him and giving him the opportunity to solve problems and learn in the process.

This is where our way of working differs from many other companies that employ freelancers. We use a holistic approach that goes beyond planting forests to maximize our social impact.

This is reflected in all our projects and enables the companies that work with us to meet all 17 UN sustainability goals.

ESG strategy: the path to a new future

For Owais, working with Click A Tree has changed his life. He still works incredibly hard: 16 to 20 hours a day. But now he can use the money he earns to give his children a better education so that they have the best possible start in life.

Now that he has more work, Owais has built up a small team to help him. Our collaboration has thus triggered a chain reaction that has created several jobs.

He was also finally able to fulfill a lifelong dream: to take part in the Hajj, an annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca. This was the first flight of his life and his first trip outside Pakistan – milestones that would not have been possible before.

However, he has not lost sight of his goal: to develop professionally. He knows that he has to keep learning in order to be successful: “Things change day by day – we have to keep improving.” Owai’s next goal is to become a Python developer, because he knows that this will open up new opportunities for him.

Do you want to help people fulfill their dreams? Then plant trees with your company and create self-sufficient ecosystems that offer people new opportunities.
