A large part of our ethos here at An Tobar Nua is social justice and giving back to our community. This means that we often highlight specific products and use a portion of the sales to donate to charity. Our bookshop has carried products produced by rescued victim’s of human trafficking as well as products from micro businesses in impoverished countries.
As part of our commitment to social justice, we selected a social justice project to which we donated a portion of our sales to a registered charitable organisation. An Tobar Nua and the Bothar Emmaus Bookshop, in cooperation with Foundation in Christ Ministries, came together to provide orphans in India with some of life’s basic needs. From beds to school supplies and school uniforms, all proceeds from hot chocolate sales in the An Tobar Nua Cafe went to help meet the basic needs of orphanages across India.
Water is Basic
The need for water is basic. It gives us life. It allows us to thrive and experience all the joys of life. It is a basic building block for our daily life. Water is basic. Millions of people around the world don’t have access to clean water. An Tobar Nua recognised this need and so we made a change. An Tobar Nua joined the cause of providing clean water to communities in the Republic of South Sudan. Through a borehole drilling organisation, Water is Basic, the proceeds from every hot chocolate purchased through the An Tobar Nua cafe went to a well being drilled to provide a basic necessity to a community in the South Sudan.
