The GeboMana story told in the video above explains how a small apparel company is making a significant impact in the majority world. Through the sale of simple organic t-shirts, GeboMana is able to offer educational opportunities to children.

Studies have shown that an individual's level of education directly co-relates with their the amount of income they will earn later on. That's why GeboMana's mission is simple: for every t-shirt they sell, they will provide education for a child for two months, thereby educating the next generation to help break the cycle of poverty.

"Every T-shirt is part of a limited edition series," the Facebook page explains. "Hand numbered, unique designs, that once they are gone, they are gone. Like couture but affordable for you."

The Australian social enterprise no longer has a traditional website. Instead their entire online presence is on their Facebook page, which has over 1,290 likes and on Twitter, where they have over 8,300 followers.
