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 lifestyle brand that offers high quality and socially responsible apparel, with designs created from the art of children living in refugee camps & less fortunate communities.
Every purchase you make enables The Orenda Tribe to fund ART activities in 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 serving with a South African foundation in Johannesburg that aims to improve the lives of Orphaned and Vulnerable Children in rural communities (Shoutout to The Lonely Road Foundation).

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 kids clothing brand, we aim to inspire all companies 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.
We believe that every company can still make a decent profit after contributing back to society and by doing so we will be one step closer to a better world.
