Bis recently partnered with The Big Issue in Australia Women’s Subscription Enterprise. The Women’s Subscription Enterprise provides safe employment opportunities for disadvantaged women across Australia through the sale of The Big Issue magazine subscriptions.
The Big Issue employs women to pack the magazines, giving them an income as well as access to training, mentoring and support without the pressure to make sales by selling copies on the streets.
40% of homeless Australians are women with approximately 49,000 women who are homeless every night.
We look forward to continuing to support The Big Issue in Australia Women’s Subscription Enterprise in their efforts in creating a nurturing work environment for women.
