For each sold Sister Power bracelet, 10 Euro is donated to the Swedish organization Barnfonden, member of Childfund Alliance, to support their work to improve the lives of climate-challenged girls around the world. When you wear the bracelet, you show your support for girls and their rights, and for the universal sisterhood.
Climate change causes severe violations of children’s rights, and girls are the most vulnerable. It is not climate change itself that causes children to be exposed to more violence, but its effects do. Floods and droughts are affecting more and more people. Children are forced to work and contribute to the family income instead of going to school. Girls often have to go and get water in places where they are at risk of abuse, or are married off when their parents cannot afford food and education.
Barnfonden was founded in 1991 and is part of the Global Child Fund Alliance network. Together with all who support us – child sponsors, monthly donors, companies and other donors – we give children in Africa, Asia and Latin America a chance for a better future. We focus on education, health, livelihood and child safety. And we know that help for self-aid and long-term sustainable development is the right way to go.
