time to discuss our challenges 

While International Women’s Day (IWD), celebrated on Sunday 8th March is an opportunity to look at our achievements and how far we have come to create a gender-equal world. It’s also a time to discuss the challenges we face and how we are going to tackle them, issues like; domestic violence, homelessness and for 2 Pairs Project, access to education, particularly for girls. 

By educating a girl, you can change the world 

Educated women have a greater chance of escaping poverty, leading healthier and more productive lives, and raising the standard of living for their children, families, and communities.

Education changes lives

In Nepal, 66% of females attend primary school and 74% of males attend primary school*. By exposing children at an early age to a classroom and learning the basics will ensure they have a more significant opportunity to be engaged in their education in primary school.

Create an impact 

This year’s IWD theme is #EachforEqual. An idea of collective individualism - meaning we are all parts of a whole. 

Our individual actions, conversations, behaviours and mindsets can have an impact on our larger society.

IWD is all about women empowering women, lifting each other up and helping those that need it the most. By purchasing our jewellery, you are supporting a child, in particular a girl to access education. 

Your individual actions have the ability to make a collective difference. 

Today, share how you’re #EqualforEqual
