Happy Herbs believes in supporting organisations that work tirelessly to impact change in humanitarian issues throughout the world, including health, education and fairness issues. We support:
- Amnesty International
- The Fred Hollows Foundation
- Indigenous Community Volunteers
- Christian Blind Mission
- Medecins San Frontiers
- Red Faces
We are partnered with One Health Organisation, Australia’s premier holistic social innovation agency. The Happy Herb Company is one of their main supporters, providing hours of time each week, a monthly donation to their running costs and the largest portion of our Social Enterprise allowance goes towards One Health's community projects.
One Health Organisation (OHO) is the only Not-for-profit Agency in Australia to specifically promote a holistic approach to primary health care, striving towards their goal of ‘health for all’.. It was formed to bridge the gap between the community sector and the holistic healthcare industry by creating and supporting integrative, wellness focused projects for the disadvantaged and vulnerable.
Being informed by a Social Ventures model, OHO acts as an umbrella organisation for community driven initiatives: encouraging the formation of new organisations, providing much needed legal infrastructure, micro-financing and strategic guidance, and distributing holistic medical supplies and supplements from our sponsors and business members. OHO’s Social Enterprise Scheme similarly encourages businesses of all sizes to create innovative programs that support their local and global communities.
One Health Organisation is a registered associate of the United Nations DPI, and represents holistic perspectives on international development and community health at relevant conferences and summits.
Some of the One Health projects that Happy Herbs is supporting include:

ANTaR's purpose has always been to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people speaking for themselves, rather than to speak for them. ANTaR works closely with national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and leaders and has an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Reference Group which provides ANTaR with direction and feedback.
Central to ANTaR's activities has been the Sea of Hands. Over 300,000 Australians have put their signatures on a hand in the Sea of Hands and helped in its installation in locations around Australia. Learn more ...
The vision of the Fred Hollows foundation is for a world where no one is needlessly blind, and Indigenous Australians enjoy the same health and life expectancy as other Australians. The foundation now works throughout Africa, Asia, and Australia focussing on blindness prevention and Australians Indigenous health.
Indigenous Community Volunteers (ICV) is a registered charity and non-profit community development organisation committed to closing the gap on Indigenous disadvantage and promoting reconciliation. They support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to develop community and human capacity to improve quality of life, health, and social and economic wellbeing.
ICV’s unique approach to community and human development fosters a spirit of empowerment and collaboration. Indigenous communities are not simply consumers of services, but active participants.
Every day, CBM is working to restore life to people living with disability in the world’s poorest countries. In 2012 CBM reached out to more than 31 million people who were living with or at risk of disability.
In developing countries, people with a disability are often unable to access the basics services such as education and healthcare, and are excluded from employment, and social and community activities.
Without these opportunities, people with disability often fall deeper into poverty and become more vulnerable to illnesses that can lead to further disability. Their work is focused on breaking this persistent cycle. Learn more ...
