The ESPEROS slogan ‘Carry Hope,’ as well as the company name itself which is derived from the Spanish verb esperar (meaning ‘to hope’) succinctly encapsules their mandate and their optimistic outlook for the future.
Founded by Oliver Shuttlesworth, the company believes that there is little else that inspires more hope for an auspicious future than a meaningful education, and it is devoted to providing children in developing and poverty-stricken countries the ability to learn.
With the cost of providing an education only costing $20 USD per year, Shuttlesworth created a business model whereby 50 per cent of the profits from the sale of each of the company’s book bags and backpacks would go toward providing an education for a child in need.
ESPEROS has also recently partnered with the non-profit Fonkoze and the two are collectively working to help children of the Chemen Lavi Miyò (Pathway to a Better Life) initiative.
