Isle of Her is now just over 6 months old (!) and we couldn't be more excited to announce something that's been in the works and on our minds for a long time...
Our new charitable partnership with 'Project Nanhi Kali' in India! :)
'Nanhi Kali' which literally translates to "a little bud" embodies so much of our core values as a brand - lifting and empowering underprivileged girls across India to create a brighter future for the next generation.
As a brand, in addition to committing 5% of all our sales going forward to contribute to such a meaningful cause, we hope to leverage our small but growing platform, to spread awareness about Project Nanhi Kali and all their initiatives within India to support every girl who wishes to educate herself.
We can only rise by lifting others and every little contribution we can all make goes a long way into shaping our women of tomorrow.
It's no surprise that Isle of Her is all about 'Her' (it's even in our name!). Inspired by and founded for the self made modern woman, we were never ones to believe that women need to be bought 'nice' things. Instead, we're hoping to give women back the power to indulge and celebrate themselves, and we strongly believe that power starts with the right education.
Add to that, Isle of Her has always been proud and loud to be 'Made in India' (by that we mean both, our jewellery and our founders) so this is our clearly our match made in heaven! :)
Anand Mahindra, Chairman of the Mahindra Group, first started Project Nanhi Kali in 1996 with the objective of providing quality education to underprivileged girls in India. Designed to support economically and socially disadvantaged girls to complete 10 years of schooling, the 'Nanhi Kali' project has transformed the lives of more than 425,000 Nanhi Kalis in India over the past 2 decades.
With the opportunity to re-write her future, every girl is provided with 360-degree support which includes daily academic support and an annual school supplies kit including feminine hygiene material. Girls in secondary school are also given access to digital tablets, pre-loaded with audio- visual educational content. Through regular engagements with the families of the girls and community stakeholders, the project creates a conducive girl friendly eco-system in under-served tribal, rural and urban poor regions of India.
We will of course be sharing more about the project over time but listed below are links to Project Nanhi Kali's website and social media handles to find out more and follow their journey!
