the beginnings

In November of 2014, Creator Anna Masica was learning about business and how money can move a needle and change the world. She came to find not many, if any, sites showcased all the companies that want to move the needle in one place. So she decided to change that.

She created OrendaWorld as a way to express and grow her creativity and writing and design skills, all while being able to try, learn, and write about social enterprises and companies out doing good.

What does Orenda even Mean?

: extraordinary invisible power believed by the Iroquois Indians to pervade in varying degrees all animate and inanimate natural objects as a transmissible spiritual energy capable of being exerted according to the will of its possessor

: human determination found to change the world in some way

how does it all fit together?

OrendaWorld wants to span the world, helping customers find the orenda to move a needle for others who need it, while also giving the companies orenda to continue making change in the lives of them and those who they employ.
