This is the first time in my life that I see such a talented group, dedicated to its customers and with a lot of ambition to create positive impact through their work and attitude. Every day I wake up thinking that I am really lucky to surround myself – albeit virtually – with such a wonderful team and with clients who want to do their bit for the world.

At Kaya I have had the opportunity to work with inspiring socio-environmental entrepreneurs, and in a dynamic and multicultural team where we learn from each other and contribute to each other's growth.
