Kenshi Candles

Kenshi Charity Candles is a Social Enterprise to make it easier for any person, club, school or charity to raise money easily. As a social enterprise, each candle funds 3kg of pasta for people in need here in Australia.

The candles are made in collaboration with the Chin refugee community in Melbourne who produce them. After fleeing from civil war in Myanmar, these amazing people are now earning much needed income.
