Shop beautifully to support Khushnama's education.Everyday, countless lives are changed by YOUR beautiful purchases. We love supporting our family of vendors, and the specific artisans who channel their creative talent into the unique pieces we sell. Recently, we got the opportunity to put our heads together with a group of beautiful artisans to create an original piece that would make a very specific impact. Oceans away in New Delhi, Ashabelle is hard at work creating products that in turn create bright futures for their artisans. Young girls living in the slums of India are often overlooked when it comes to dreams of education or career. Pushed into marriages, these women are frequently forced to forgo their passions in order to please society. By providing an alternative place for these women to learn and grow in both skill and spirit, Ashabelle is changing the status quo in India. And with the help of Bought Beautifully shoppers, dreams of education are now more attainable than ever, especially for one artisan in particular.
Meet Khushnama: daughter, creator, dreamer.Khushnama’s parents moved to Delhi, India from a village in Bihar to make a better life for themselves. This gave her an opportunity to go to school. While Khushnama has finished her primary education, she is interested in pursuing higher level studies, specifically English courses. Unfortunately, she is facing opposition from her family and her community, as they would like her to settle down and start a family instead of pursuing such childish interests. Khushnama has yet to give up on her dream as she feels that her desire for more education is pertinent to her future success.
Not only is Khushnama passionate about English education, she is also a talented designer, a lover of music, and an independent woman with BIG dreams.
We believe in the importance of education and the role it plays in future success.As we began to brainstorm ways to tangibly provide education for artisans, we were able to hear Khushnama's story, and the yearning she has for an education that would propel her future goals and dreams. After many months of dreaming and collaborating with the Ashabelle team, we are excited to announce that we have created an opportunity to provide education for Khushnama. With your help, our efforts to continue Khushnama's education are within reach! And the best part? It comes in the form of a beautiful necklace!
Every necklace purchase provides $4 to Khushnama's scholarship fund.
(P.S. It only takes 6 necklace sales to meet Khushnama's education goal. YOUR purchase counts!)
So, as you prepare for the new school year that awaits here in America, we ask that you also prepare to help us bring education to girls like Khushnama, who are fighting daily to keep their dreams alive. Together, we can educate women around the world BEAUTIFULLY.
