Your support was phenomenal! We did way better than anyone expected. Together we have raised enough to send 36 girls to school in India...... 

 

10% of all sales* over the entire Black Friday / Cyber Monday sale weekend are going to helping deprived young girls in India get a good education

This year, for Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend 2018, we wanted to see how many girls we can send to school in India!

Working with a beautiful grassroots charity, Fior Di Loto and its founders Deepu and Mara, we are going to see how many girls from deprived communities we can send to school.

For just £220 Fior Di Loto can educate a young girl for a year, buy her uniform and shoes, provide her school books, feed her lunch every day, transport to school and (most importantly) buy her one fancy dress outfit for all the Indian festivals. We think thats about the best thing you can buy with £220! They have over 100 girls on a waiting list for a sponsor.

We know Deepu and Mara personally and have visited the school ourselves so we know that 100% of donations will be spent on educating, clothing and feeding young girls that really need it.

Most of the teachers at the school were once students of there, so you can see the passion in them the second that you meet them. They speak with such excitement about the great things that the school does. They understand the struggles of the girls and know how to teach them to be independent. 

Our favourite part was all of the motivational quotes on the wall:

"Girl power"
"Women empowerment"
They really believe that this is the way to change the world for the better, by taking girls from deprived villages and teaching them skills and knowledge for life..... and we agree!!!
