It took me a while to figure out which charity to donate to because there are so many good ones and there is so much need. Before I even started Michelle Isabel & Co, I knew that I wanted Michelle Isabel & Co to give because at the core of this business lies a serving heart. In 2018, I found the right place. As of January 1, 2018 Michelle Isabel & Co has partnered with Malala Fund. If you've read through the core values you know that I highly value education so it was only fitting to contribute to a cause that values the same. Every client of Michelle Isabel & Co helps fund women's education in India. The greatest warrior this world could ask for is a woman with education and together we can create warriors. Today there are 130 MILLION girls without education but we can change that one contribution at a time.
In northern India, when families struggle to make ends meet, educating their daughters becomes a luxury.
That’s why Malala Fund is investing in education advocates like Rehana Rehman, who promotes girls’ education in rural Indian villages and persuades parents that school will give their daughters a brighter future.
Malala Fund supporters are helping Rehana — and 23 other activists that make up the Gulmakai Network — further their work in regions where girls face the greatest barriers to education.
For years, Rehana has helped girls like Razia, whose family took her out of school after grade 8. Razia was determined to continue her education — and Rehana helped to convince her parents.
It wasn’t easy. Sometimes the family didn’t have enough food and Razia had to help her mother with work to earn money. Their home has no electricity, so Razia did her homework by candlelight. But today Razia is still in school and dreams of becoming a teacher.
More than 130 million girls out of school around the world don’t have people like Rehana to look out for them. With your support, we can help Rehana and the rest of the Gulmakai Network reach more girls.
