MINDTRIBES is very conscious of the economic differences between developed and developing countries.
As Australia leverages the benefits of doing business in Asian and ASEAN countries, which lifts the economic conditions of thousands of local staff, there is much to be done within local communities. MindTribes Founder and Managing Director, Div Pillay is passionate about Children, Girls’ Education, Womens’ Health and Women’s Entrepreneurial Skills. MINDTRIBES Cares was created to address this gap.
With every new client signed, MindTribes proudly gives up to 10% of the deal to Plan International, specifically to the ‘Because I am a Girl’ Campaign. To view this campaign’s outstanding work, click here.
In addition, we continuously support two children, one in India and one in the Philippines to represent our client’s business interests in these developing countries. We courageously ask our clients what they are doing corporately to contribute.
Supporting the fight against Youth Homelessness
MINDTRIBES is equally passionate about youth homelessness. Around 25% of homeless youth in Victoria are from refugee, asylum seeker and migrant backgrounds.
Div Pillay, CEO of MindTribes is on the board of STREAT. STREAT is a hospitality social enterprise dedicated to supporting homeless youth, develop skills in the hospitality industry. Year on year approximately 82% of homeless youth find job opportunities and pathways for their success. We strongly support STREAT in their work as we are values aligned, in creating opportunity for those who are vulnerable and providing a long term holistic pathway that has measurable impact and outcomes.

Acknowledgement to Country
At MindTribes, we pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of Australia. Representing the oldest living culture in the world, First Nations people have been the traditional custodians of this land for more than 65000 years. Australia, is the only commonwealth country that does not have a signed treaty (a formal agreement with the government and Indigenous people). We at MindTribes are committed to ensuring that every client we partner with has a meaningful and action-based Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)– whilst we don’t design or deliver a RAP, one of our first principles is not doing business with a client who does not have a RAP or an intention to execute a RAP in the time we are with them.
