we donate $2 from every single bag sold
Beginning on UNESCO's International Day of Education (January 24th, 2021), we will be donating $2 for each single bag we sell and will collect additional donations from customers who want to help us make a difference.
Help us sponsor education for a girl in India by buying a bag of Prana Chai, or adding a donation to your next purchase. One day of education costs just $1.15.
Values updated weekly.
LET'S MAKE A DIFFERENCE
With our help, Commit2Change can transform the lives of girls in India through the power of education. When girls are educated, entire communities thrive — but 130 million girls around the world are not in school.
Extreme hardships such as poverty, early marriage, and gender inequality force millions of girls to leave school far too young, making them more vulnerable to significant health risks and tragedies including trafficking, early childbirth, and HIV/AIDS.
Education changes the world, and gives girls the power of choice. When we educate girls, we change their lives, protect their health, and help them lift entire families out of poverty.
Your donation or purchase with Prana Chai makes this possible.
Commit2Change are building a world in which every girl can thrive - no matter where she lives, no matter what her background.
They have reached nearly 3,000 girls with critical education and life skills programs that are changing the course of their futures.
Through Commit2Change's new partnership with Prana Chai, they will directly support the daughters of migrant workers at partner NGOs in India.
During 2021, we aim to raise resources to initiate new programs with impact directly in the tea growing regions, specifically near the India and Nepal border.
Help send more girls to school
Can you spare $6.50 a week? That's all it costs to sponsor one girl's education.
While we commit to donating $2 for every purchase of a single bag of chai, you can help us reach our annual donation goal of $15,000 - this will sponsor a full year of education for 45 girls.
100% of funds donated go direct to Commit2Change.
WHY SUPPORT GIRLS?
- An educated girl marries, on average, 4 years later and has 2.2 fewer children.
- For every year of secondary school completed, her wages will increase up to 25%.
- She’s even 3x less likely to acquire HIV/AIDS.
- An educated girl will invest 90% of her future income back into her family, helping the next generation stay healthy, nourished, and prosperous.
Education changes everything …… for girls, for women, for everybody. Opportunities transform not only lives but entire communities.
World change starts with educated girls — in fact, girls’ education is the foundation of inclusive and sustainable growth.

Tulsi, 14, from Bandra, Mumbai
BACKGROUND: Tulsi is in 9th grade and hails from the Mumbai suburb of Bandra. She lives at the Seva Sadan, a shelter home. Tulsi was born in Pune, Maharashtra. Her parents moved to Mumbai soon after her birth to better their lives, into a small home in a slum community.Her father took up work as a driver. When Tulsi was just a year old, her parents separated and she was left with her father. She has not seen or heard from her mother since. The early years of Tulsi’s life were spent solely with her aunt while her father worked away from home. Around the age of 8, Tulsi’s aunt found caring for her too much and found a home to put her in: Seva Sadan. “I wanted to study more and no one was home to take care of me,”she says.
TODAY: Tulsi has been at Seva Sadan ever since and she has excelled in all her subjects. She is sponsored by Commit2Change. She enjoys Math in particular. Her wish is that she can go to school and study math or science.
Manisha, 18, from Firozpur, Punjab
BACKGROUND: Manisha lives in a hostel in New Delhi, India. When she was little, she was left on the side of the road by her young mother. She was picked up by a social worker and taken to a convent home. Here, Manisha noticed that the sisters all spoke English to one another, so she asked to be taught the language. When Manisha turned 16 she was shuffled out of the convent home and into Salaam Baalak Trust. Here, her perfect English helped her grasp new information and rise to the top of her class.
TODAY: At Salaam Baalak Trust, Manisha is sponsored by Commit2Change. The sponsorship has allowed her to attend a private secondary high school to continue her studies. When asked how Commit2Change has helped her she states, “I am lucky enough to be sponsored by Commit2Change. This will give me the opportunity to better myself and attend a good college where I can study business.”
