"Barnraising" refers to an old tradition in farming communities where everyone comes together to strengthen one of their members. This act of generosity strengthens the entire community in return.

The community of Certified B Corps in Asia is proud to welcome Thailand to the B Corp Movement and can't wait to see how Thai B Corps will strengthen our entire Asian community.
