Since 2016, Camilla Franks has streamlined her business’ philanthropy efforts with The Hunger Project; an Australian charity that aims to facilitate programs for women and girls living in marginalised areas of India to develop skills and knowledge that empower them to make positive and tangible cultural and structural changes within their communities.

Thank you to each and every beautiful tribe member who has purchased any of the pieces we’ve released over the past 2 years for The Butterfly Effect – which is transforming the lives of young girls in India.

Together, we’ve raised $200,000 towards our $240,000 goal, 83% of our goal!

From January 2018 to June 2019, 339 child marriages have been stopped and 288 girls have enrolled or re-enrolled into school.  

This is an incredible impact that will have a ripple effect to these girls’ families, schools, and communities – now and into the future.

 
 
"The women of CAMILLA live, breathe and love far beyond our walls. They are our mothers, daughters, grandmothers, aunts, sister’s and friends. They are all of us. After witnessing the mistreatment of women in my second home of India too many times, I was ready for the brand to invest in the power of female education, and this is exactly what the Butterfly Effect is.
 
We chose the name of The Butterfly Effect because we believe education causes a domino effect by those who have been equipped with the power of education to spread their wings of knowledge to others. This is not only true for the girls of the program, but for many of our staff at Head Office who continue to look for ways to help and empower others through education and communication.”

The Butterfly Effect is exclusively funded by the Camilla brand and tribe, so it means a lot to us to have your support.

These funds go towards educating and training 1,000 young women in Bihar, India around issues affecting their health, freedom and safety, with the ultimate aim of preventing child marriage.

The challenges these young women face are enormous and unfathomable:

- Two of every five marriages (42.5%) in India involves a child marriage

- Girls in Bihar in particular face enormous challenges as Bihar has the highest rates of child marriage in the country — as high as three out of every five marriages (60%)

- Less than 20% of 16-17 year olds go to school

- 90% experience anaemia

- High rates of child labour and trafficking

We know the smallest of actions can create the greatest of changes. We invite you to continue making a difference in the lives of adolescent girls by purchasing the special pieces we launch to support The Butterfly Effect.

Our latest piece is the limited edition silk scarf. Each of the 150 scarves have been crafted from unused CAMILLA silks from collections as early as SS17 and are in all CAMILLA boutiques Australia wide at an RRP of $149 AUD.

100% of all proceeds will be reinvested into the CAMILLA x THE HUNGER PROJECT program to create a brighter, more colourful future for the girls of Bihar, India and beyond.

 

 

Wear your heart on your sleeve and help create a brighter future for these young girls.
