In the states, we’re in the midst of the hustle and bustle of a brand new school year. But for our girls in Mozambique, the school year is winding down in November. Since their school year runs from February to November, all of the girls the Kurandza community supported through the 2017 #IStandForGirls campaign are just about finished with their school year - their first one ever for many of them!
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE #ISTANDFORGIRLS CAMPAIGN!
It’s almost that time again! Our 2018 #IStandForGirls campaign is coming up quickly and we’re so excited for what this year’s campaign has in store. If you were around last year, you’ll know that this is our second campaign and with the success of our first one (you sent more than 100 girls to school!) we’re dreaming big this year too!
One of our favorite parts about running a non-profit is the community of world-changing, strong women we’ve been inspired by over the years. Making a tangible difference in the lives of women around the world is the cornerstone of our mission at Kurandza and we love highlighting brands, influencers, bloggers, and really, anyone, on a mission to do the same.
We’re so excited to introduce this month’s Giveback Partner Spotlight! Kimberly Pendleton (Kim) met Kurandza's founder, Elisabetta, at a transformational retreat in Tulum, Mexico last year, and has supported Kurandza ever since! She is the founder of Heart Space, and she works to empower women all over the world-- both internationally and here in the U.S. She is an inspiration to all who meet her! We are honored to have Kim as one of our very special Giveback Partners!
In early February, our girls at our partner schools in Mozambique had their first day of school. For many of the girls, it was their first day of school ever and there was a tangible feeling of excitement in the air. We want to share a quick recap of their first day of school so you can join in with the excitement and get to know the girls a little bit better!
We’re so excited to introduce this month’s Giveback Partner Spotlight! Alyssa Coleman has supported Kurandza since the beginning (she was our first ever Giveback Partner!) and we’ve only grown to love her more during our time working together. An entrepreneurial lady-boss herself, Alyssa has built a brand around empowering women entrepreneurs to grow their business through productivity strategies. She’s helped countless women and we are honored to have her on our team of partners!
Our monthly spotlights of our Giveback Partners is one of our favorite blog posts of the month because it gives a "face to the name" of the people who make Kurandza what it is. Giveback Partners are monthly supporters of Kurandza, either individually, as an organization, or through a retail partnership or event.
