Meeting these courageous girls and hearing their stories has been an indescribably uplifting experience. Here are a few of our rockstars...
10% of every purchase (~50% of our profits) directly go to girls education programs. Each of these programs targets a specific obstacle in each community that prevents girls from going to school.
WHAT OUR PROGRAMS DO

These are our currently active programs.
We continually monitor our programs for effectiveness. Several times a year, we visit the schools and villages to see the impact first-hand. In these visits, every single girl we talked to has told us that school is the favorite part of her life, and that she wants to keep on studying. Their smiling faces are our truest source of motivation to remain committed to our mission.
