When I started my business, I knew that one of the ways I wanted to make an impact was to make giving back part of my business model. I looked into partnering with organizations and causes that fit my values, are actually making a difference, and have a way for new enterprises like mine to grow their give-back strategy in tandem with their business.

To that end, I am thrilled to announce that I'm now partnering with Kurandza!

Kurandza means "to love" and is a non-profit social enterprise that invests in the future of women and girls in Mozambique. Through education, entrepreneurship, and sustainable development programs, women and girls learn to become leaders in their villages, sharing their skills and knowledge with the rest of their community, and creating opportunity for thousands of people. Kurandza is currently providing education to 200 girls in Mozambique, and creating jobs for women.

The funds Kurandza receives go to their immediate needs as an organization, which includes funding their Holistic Education Program, improving their partner pre-school, and paying dignified salaries to the on-the-ground staff in Mozambique.

We share the belief that empowering young girls with support and education will create a ripple effect that will make the world a better place.

I donate a set portion of my business revenue every month to Kurandza. By choosing to work with me, you are not only empowering yourself, but making a direct impact in the lives of other women and girls.
