JOIN THE BESTOW SISTERHOOD
At Bestow Beauty, we place the utmost importance in lifting up other women and making them feel their best, even those who are from another country.
Recently launched in Australia, The Bestow Sisterhood, aims to do just that and more, for the young girls of rural Cambodia.
The Bestow Sisterhood is a collective of beauty therapists and skincare clinics across Australia and New Zealand who are changing the lives of vulnerable girls in Cambodia, by sponsoring their education, and helping provide food and livable standards for their families.
As a partnership between our Bestow Beauty founder, Janine Tait and her sister, founder of the Cambodia Charitable Trust, Denise Arnold, The Bestow Sisterhood was begun after Janie heard about the horrible and terrifying conditions many Cambodian children were enduring, often being rented out for sex each week, even when they are as young as five or six.
Over the past 10 years, Denise has helped change the future for thousands of vulnerable Cambodian children by transforming schools and ensuring even the poorest children are available to be sponsored so they can attend school and gain the education they deserve.
"Education is the greatest hope for fighting poverty and slavery - especially the education of girls, who in these communities are often much more vulnerable to sex trafficking and abuse."
Girls who don't go to school are vulnerable to these kinds of fates, like sex trafficking, or can end up married and bearing children long before their bodies are developed enough with delivering a baby.
Through the Bestow Sisterhood, skin and beauty clinics can sponsor a girl's education for as little as $40 a month, which to us is a small amount, but to the girls can mean the difference between and education or a terrible fate.
“My whole career has been about women and wellness. But wellness ultimately needs to take us beyond ourselves - that is what true soul health looks like. The Bestow sisterhood is about women helping women; offering wellbeing to young girls in Cambodia who don’t have the privileges we have.”
Over 50 Cambodian girls have been sponsored by beauty therapists so far, since the launch of the Bestow Sisterhood in 2017.
We now invite YOU to help us sponsor as many girls as we can to change the life of hundreds of little girls. You can sponsor a Cambodian sister for $40 per month, which includes a school uniform and essential school stationary, access to health checks, food for her family, and a monthly contribution to family living costs to cover the loss of the child's wage.
Bestow Beauty Australia is currently sponsoring 5 Cambodian girls to play our part and lead by example.
