CAMILLA & THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT

758 521 The Hunger Project Australia

A PARTNERSHIP TRANSFORMING THE LIVES OF 1,000 GIRLS

Six thousand girls have participated in The Hunger Project’s Adolescent Girls Program to date. Now, well known Australian fashion brand CAMILLA has launched a brand-new partnership with The Hunger Project that will enable a further 1,000 young women in India’s third-largest state of Bihar to participate in 2018.

Young girls in rural Bihar are particularly vulnerable to hunger and poverty: nearly half of all girls are married before the legal age of 18, and fewer than 20% of girls aged 16-17 get the opportunity to attend school, with many forced to work early.

The CAMILLA x The Hunger Project partnership is called The Butterfly Effect, inspired by the power of one change to make a big difference.

“DURING A TRIP TO INDIA A FEW YEARS AGO, I WITNESSED FIRST-HAND HOW SOME YOUNG WOMEN ARE MISTREATED AND I NOW UNDERSTAND THAT WITH EVERY DOLLAR, GUIDANCE, EDUCATION AND SUPPORT – WE CAN HELP TURN THEIR LIVES AROUND. MY DREAM FOR CAMILLA IS BIGGER THAN FASHION. IT’S ABOUT A FULL VISION THAT HELPS EMPOWER GIRLS AND WOMEN BY PROVIDING THEM WITH SKILLS, EDUCATION, PURPOSE AND A SAFE COMMUNITY.” – Camilla Franks, CAMILLA Founder and Owner.

Through The Butterfly Effect and in partnership with The Hunger Project India, 1,000 girls will transform their lives, and change the future forever.
