Brit supports the Kibera Girls Education Fund which works to rescue girls from the perils of sexual assault and early pregnancy. It provides a school for the girls, an education programme and safe new living accommodation where they can flourish. Brit has supported the fund financially and through employee volunteers visits to help shelter the girls from some of the problems they face.
For many people Kibera is unknown or out of sight, so out of mind. Seeing that level of poverty for the first time was heartbreaking. Having the opportunity to make a small difference and meet such incredible strong, determined and inspirational young women and children was life-changing.
The most inspirational team in motorsport
We began our partnership with Team BRIT in 2017. We knew it was the perfect fit. They are a competitive motor racing team and like us, their aim is to seize the potential of the future. They’ve never looked back.
Team BRIT drivers are disabled. They race against able-bodied drivers on a level playing field. Many are ex or serving military troops with serious physical and mental injuries. The team is an offshoot of KartForce, an organisation set up to inspire people with disabilities, PTSD and mental health issues, by demonstrating what can be achieved through motorsport.
Through TEAM BRIT, injured military personnel can achieve what they never thought possible; to compete again at the highest level, and to gain personal and professional skills through understanding the motorsport business.
There are many futures besides your own that you will impact when you work at Brit. The Earth’s future, for one. What it will be like in centuries to come, no one knows for certain. But we can say for sure, is that we are doing our best to protect it.
Our sustainability initiatives make a real difference. With our partner ClimateCare, we are offsetting carbon emissions generated by our employees’ air travel and bringing better cookstoves to people in Africa. Through the LifeStraw project, we’ve also brought safe drinking water to over 4 million people in Kenya.
We’ve made changes to our own workplace too, by recycling metal and plastic to reduce landfill and reducing our food waste.
