I am so excited and proud to say that my wonderful boss is now the founder of the charity Atma which helps children and adults in India find the right education they need and deserve.
I read some shocking statistics
-20% of India’s poor have no access to education
-86% have no access to technical and vocal training
-45% drop out before 8th grade
-By 2015, 65% of the Indian population will be youth
-By 2050, 50% of the worlds illiterate will be in India.
So Kanch and I have organised some events to help raise awareness for the charity and in the coming week we will be hosting a Bespoke Shoes Workshop where you can learn how to customise, fit, measure and learn what goes into making your ideal shoe over some wine and nibbles. Talk to founders of Shoe Artistry and their shoe master with 30 years of experience behind his belt.
Please check out the invite and RSVP to reserve your spot. Any press that would like to come please email me directly at Petra@KanchanCouture.com
Date: AUGUST 31st
Your help: $200HKD with 50% going to Atma
**I went a few weeks ago to Shoe Artistry in Mong Kok and was suprised to hear that Kanch was getting me a pair of Bespoke shoes for my birthday!!! So when we had our little brain storming meeting, we both had our feet measured for our new shoes. Can’t wait to see what they look like!
