Collection: Girls

Our clothing collection for Teens is finally here. This was a collaboration with my own daughter and as part of this collaboration we will be donating the proceeds for the next 4 weeks to the charity Saathi.   
 By Lilly.
At school I learned of a charity called Saathi - founded by a girl at my school.  Saathi help girls fight period poverty by donating period pants in India. It is estimated that 23 million girls drop out of school every year in India due to a lack of proper menstrual products and menstrual hygiene management facilities in schools. Yet, many more miss days of school every month which leaves them at a significant disadvantage. They sadly have to make do with only rags or cloths that have a high chance of infection. Only 20% of girls across India have completed at least 12 years of schooling!
 Being half Indian I was angry and saddened to hear of so many girls our age missing school because of something so simple that we all take for granted. I wanted to do something to help and so came up with the idea to collaborate with my mum to design this line of fun teen clothes. The proceeds from sales for the next 4 weeks will be donate to Saathi.  I hope you will support us and, in the process, many other girls less fortunate than us.  Teens for Teens – let’s do our bit to help support girls in need.
