About our charities
When we both decided we wanted to start our own jewelry company, we absolutely knew that we wanted to stand behind a product that gave back.
We were both raised to be strong, independent, educated women who had the world at our fingertips. Unfortunately, that isn't the case for all girls around the world: Education is put on the back burner; illness can strike; girls are ridiculed for things that are naturally happening to their body.
This is why Soul Sisters wanted to partner with our two amazing charities. Each one is special and unique in its own light and we think they all will speak to your soul just as much as they speak to ours.
Days for Girls: Since 2008, Days for Girls has enabled over 400,000 women and girls to go to school and work uninterrupted, by providing hygiene solutions in over 100 countries. Each Days for Girls washable hygiene Kit lasts for 2-4 years, earning each girl back up to 240 days of education and opportunity that would otherwise be missed without hygiene options. Supporting menstrual hygiene is a simple and effective way to make a profound difference in a girl's life. Through Days for Girls programs, women and girls discover their potential and self-value, are agents of social change, and are given opportunities to thrive, grow and contribute to their community’s betterment, while creating access to quality sustainable feminine hygiene for 'Every girl. Everywhere. Period.' For more information, please visit: http://www.daysforgirls.org/
Tostan: Tostan is an international nonprofit headquartered in Dakar, Senegal. We envision a world where everyone is treated equally and respectfully, and has the tools they need to reach their full potential. By facilitating the spread of human rights education and practical skills, we provide rural communities with the knowledge to determine their own vision and develop sustainably.
We have spent 25 years developing a way to put communities in charge of their own futures through our grassroots holistic education program. We are headquartered in Africa, always putting our communities first. Our facilitators come from our partner communities, and the hiring and training of African staff is a priority.

Speak Up For The Poor: Speak Up is an international non-profit organization empowering girls in poverty. Working primarily in Bangladesh, Speak Up runs a Girls Education Program keeping more than 1300 girls in school, out of child marriage, and on track to reach their educational and career goals. Speak Up was founded by an attorney and former prosecutor, and provides legal aid for girls-at-risk as well as funds programs to remove girls from brothels and place them in safe homes. The organization is funded primarily by individual donors who sponsor girls in the GEP for $30 a month, and is currently empowering girls in Bangladesh, Cambodia, and Lebanon-Syria.
