Life Changing Candles
In 2017, a 14-year-old boy named Liam embarked on a mission to make a meaningful impact in the world. He founded Kenshi Candles as a social enterprise, with the goal of funding food for people in need here in Australia using the money people already spent on candles.
In 2019, as demand for Kenshi Candles grew, the family garage could no longer accommodate production. The candle-making process found a new home at our factory in Sunshine. Here, every candle is meticulously hand poured by refugees from Myanmar. This means that not only is each candle funding pasta for those in need, but it also provides vital income for the Chin refugee community in Melbourne.
With Liam’s vision at its core, Kenshi Candles continues to illuminate lives, both through the the profits we donate and in providing meaningful employment opportunities for the Chin refugees.
