direct support for workers and their families

Without tea workers, we wouldn't be able to make Prana Chai. While we buy our tea from reputable sources, we are aware that even ethical sourcing of tea isn't always enough to disrupt the cycles of poverty experienced by many workers. Due to colonial-era wage policies still prevalent in India, even ethically traded tea could have been picked by workers earning less than USD $2 a day. We, like many coffee and tea businesses, often feel helpless as we have limited control over how the money we pay is distributed along the supply chain.

While we will continue to take ethical sourcing seriously, we wanted to go beyond this and help raise funds and awareness for a cause connected to our industry and close to our hearts.

Why did we decide to support education for girls? Because the entrenched poverty of these migrant workers and their families has a disproportionate effect on girls - this, and the fact that all three founders have daughters helped us make that choice.

For every single bag of Prana Chai we sell, we commit to change by donating $2.

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.
