#IStandForGirls

A few months ago I joined a community of female travelers and became connected with some amazing women. One of them, Elisabetta, runs the non-profit organization Kurandza.

Based in Mozambique, Kurandza is focused on the empowerment of local women. Elisabetta’s best friend and organizational partner Percina was the first woman from her village to graduate from high school, despite having to walk more than 10 miles to school each day. Her own experience sparked a passion in her heart for the education of girls, and now Kurandza is running a campaign to send 100 Mozambican girls to school. When Elisabetta reached out asking for people to help promote the campaign launch, joining was an absolute no-brainer.

There are a couple of ways you can help support this amazing cause.

1: Sponsor a girl directly for only $20 per month

2: Shop from vendors who are supporting the cause! Check #istandforgirls on Instagram to find them! (I am supporting through all purchases made on Etsy and NuSkin through the end of October)

We are facing so many issues in the world today, and direct charity is only a temporary help. We must invest in the actions that will result in long-term change, and educating girls is clearly one of the most impactful things we can do.

I stand for girls, and I hope you’ll stand with me.
