ALUMNI KLABU - Sports as a driver for growth and connection - that is the KLABU spirit. It doesn't matter whether you're kicking a ball, we all feel the power and joy of sports. But we don't all have the same opportunities. KLABU is the club that unlocks access to sports. Starting where it’s needed most: in refugee camps.
ALUMNI PLASTIC WHALE is the first professional plastic fishing company in the world. A social enterprise with a mission: make the world’s waters plastic-free and create value from plastic waste.
