Fashion and Charity-Part 3

The third organization I found that was nonprofit is the Curves for Change. The goal is focus on models philanthropic work word wide. The organization was founded in 2010 in efforts to advocate and support the empowerment of girls and women around the world.

One of the programs that was showcased that caught my attention is the Komera Project. Komera means "be strong, have courage" in Rwanda. The project is a nonprofit aimed at providing mentorship and financial assistance to girls where secondary education is otherwise impossible. The project helps in terms in the girls health, self-worth and breaking the "bonds of poverty."
