Introducing Downlights NZ
Downlights NZ is a New Zealand owned and operated fragranced soy candle company that manufactures luxury candles using artisanal techniques. Our candles are lovingly hand poured and the entire manufacturing process supports the development of a variety of workplace skills and offers employment opportunities for young adults with Down syndrome and disabilities.
As social entrepreneurs, the team offer their latest candle ranges to schools, community groups and charities so that they can fulfill their fundraising endeavours. Made with love, the candle results in a superior New Zealand hand crafted candle range that empower people with disabilities.
Jennifer Del Bel, Managing Director of Downlights NZ and Illumina NZ shares: “our tagline ‘illuminate.care.change’ amplifies our dream to set an example for other employers in New Zealand by looking to ‘illuminate’ and light the way by creating jobs and showing ‘care’ as a community by offering opportunities within our company. We hope that one day, this will pave the way for ‘change’ that leads to greater acceptance for people with disabilities to be placed and valued in today’s growing workforce”.
