Non-profits Make it to The Big Issue’s Top 100 Changemakers
What a treat to see so many of the non-profits that have pitched at TFN events make it to The Big Issue’s list of Top 100 Changemakers.
This special issue celebrates 100 thinkers, creators and agitators who are expected to make an impact in 2019. It includes campaigners, people working in tech, business, music and the arts, literacy, sport, charities and social policy.
Jem Stein of The Bike Project and Mursal Hedayat of Chatterbox were recognised for improving the lives of refugees in London. The Bike Project donated more than 3,000 bikes and bike repair training to refugees, whilst Chatterbox provides work for refugees as language teachers through an online language program. Christine Hill made it to the Top 100 with MediCinema, which builds, installs and runs cinemas in places of care to give respite to patients and their families. Last but not least, Katee Hul of Hackney Laces is mentioned for her work on gender equality in sport through their girls’ football clubs.
A well-deserved thumbs up from The Big Issue!
