The Orenda Tribe
(noun) A mystical force present in all people that empowers them to affect the world, or to effect change in their own lives.
The Orenda Tribe is a value based lifestyle brand that features children's art from refugee camps and less fortunate communities on its products in the aim of empowering them.
Every purchase you make enables The Orenda Tribe to give back using ART to refugee camps and less fortunate communities.
Why ART? Art is a neglected subject in most distressed communities although it is very important in building skills in children that will allow them to build a better future for themselves. Skills such as creativity, problem-solving, communication and confidence. Add to this, that ART spreads smiles and happiness into children's lives.
The Birth of The Orenda Tribe
The Orenda Tribe, is the product of two years of soul-searching, while attending one of the top entrepreneurship focused MBA programs in the world with students from 67 different nationalities in Madrid and then serving with a South African foundation in Johannesburg that aims to improve the lives of Orphaned and Vulnerable Children in rural communities.

Coming from a region with dire need of help (The Middle East), from Jordan, Zaid Souqi, decided one day to quit his comfort zone, his job as the General Manager of a Logistics Company, to pursue a purposeful life through The Orenda Tribe.
Through establishing a for-profit lifestyle brand, we aim to inspire other companies in the region to have positive social impact integrated into their business models, while spreading hope for kids living in distressed communities and raising people's awareness on those communities' around the world.
