speak is an acronym for each member of my immediate family.
To speak is to express ones thoughts & feelings. To connect. To empower.
My purpose is to create a foundation that will give children the most powerful tool to
escape the vicious circle of poverty: Education.
To give them a chance at a brighter future.
My vision is to empower underprivileged children in India through primary education with
the goal to infuse vocational training to provide opportunities and perpetuate
craftsmanship. We embark upon this journey with our first partnership with CITTA.
SPEAK X CITTA
As a woman who grew up in Mumbai, and a mother of two children, I am saddened by the state of impoverished street children in India. Girls in particular are born into vicious cycles of malnutrition, poor education and unequal rights. As such, we are pledging 5% of our handbag sales to CITTA, an organization run by artist and anthropologist, Michael Daube that empowers girls through schooling, community support, and traditional craft.
Thank you for giving back. Learn more about CITTA here.
