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.
Christmas is only a few days away (eeeek!) and more than likely, you've been swamped with gift guides and sales and are just about "shopped out" for the season. Or, maybe you're one of the last-minute shoppers who hope to gather some quick inspiration for meaningful gifts that won't end up in the garage sale pile after a few months. We have four words for you: gifts that give back.
The Kurandza team is hiring an awesome virtual assistant!
The Role: We’re looking for a passionate and enthusiastic Virtual Assistant who will provide administrative and logistical support to Kurandza’s Founder, Elisabetta. This person will be able to successfully work alongside Elisabetta and her team in Mozambique, as well as be strongly self-motivated and able to get work done without close supervision. If this sounds like you and you have a desire to make a positive impact in the world, and are easy and fun to work with, then we’re looking for you!
Our Country Director in Mozambique, Percina, visited the US last month to help us kickoff our #IStandForGirls campaign! We traveled from Mozambique back to the US together in the end of August, and went straight down to LA for the Yellow Conference, a gathering of 500+ incredibly inspiring creative women who are on a mission to do good in the world! She had such an amazing time sharing her story and meeting so many like-minded women leaders!
Today marks the 2nd anniversary of when Kurandza began! We've come so far in these last two years, and we wanted to celebrate all of our milestones with you!
When the floods came and destroyed my house and all of my belongings, Peace Corps wanted to send me home or to a new site up north. I didn't want to leave my community-- I had spent a year learning their language and getting to know their culture. I spent time creating programs in the community and I didn't want them to be abandoned.
