Toi Toi Manawa social enterprise grant

Toi Toi Manawa

We were the recipients of a multi-year $20,000 funding grant from Toi Toi Manawa to develop Beyond the Bin into a sustainable organisation.

Toi Toi Manawa are an organisation who specifically fund social enterprises who are working in the community. 

Receiving a grant from Toi Toi Manawa requires the recipient to engage with mentors, advisors or business coaches to ensure the organisation’s development is optimal. We are extremely lucky to have received assistance from a number of mentors and advisors throughout the development of our organisation.

This grant from Toi Toi Manawa has been crucial, enabling us to get on with the job of building our training programmes, setting up our systems and developing our infrastructure.

Rabid Technologies partnered with us to build our event waste data map. Rabid connected with our passion for waste minimisation and wanted to help us out!

Specialising in app building across multiple platforms, Rabid helped us through the process of designing and planning how the map would interact with event waste data.

Then Rabid worked to create a dynamic and responsive map which showcases event waste data from around New Zealand. Click here to view the map.
