The Global Fund for Children
is a wonderful force for good in the world. Our
longtime charity partner, the GFC works with local nonprofit organizations to advance the dignity of children and young people around the world.
Since 1997, the GFC has invested nearly $31 million in more than 575 grassroots organizations in 78 countries, helping transform the lives of 9 million of the world’s most vulnerable children.
At Tea, we believe in and wholeheartedly support their mission. Our support takes a variety of forms…
- On a selected Thursday each month, Tea holds a Global Giving Thursday. We match every single donation given to the Global Fund for Children through our site on this day. (You can choose to donate when you check out).
- Each year we design several exclusive (and adorable) pajama sets that we sell around the winter holidays. We donate all proceeds from the sale of these PJs directly to the Global Fund for Children.
- We also hold regular Give Back events throughout the year, during which we donate a portion of all our online sales to the GFC.
Spotlight On Asociación Educativa Kusi Kawsay In Pisac, Peru
This season, we’re celebrating the things that connect us all. We want to show kids that no matter where we live or what language we speak, we all care about the same things. We are partnering with the Global Fund for Children to break down barriers and open minds.
This month we feature Asociación Educativa Kusi Kawsay in Pisac, Peru.
The town of Pisac, located in the Sacred Valley of the Urubamba River, is home to remarkable Incan ruins, dramatic mountains and roughly 10,000 indigenous inhabitants.
Unfortunately, Peru’s public school system does not value indigenous culture or consider the unique needs of indigenous children – many of whom face poverty, discrimination and struggles with self-esteem. The public schools in Pisac are overcrowded and students do not get the individual attention they need.
Asociación Educativa Kusi Kawsay (Happy Life Educational Association) is an independent nonprofit school that provides, indigenous children with high-quality, bilingual education. In addition to traditional subjects like math, literature and science, Kusi Kawsay offers workshops in weaving, Andean masonry, Quechua language, music, dance, art, nutrition and agriculture. The school currently serves 100 children from early childhood through 11th.
When you make a purchase this month, consider adding a donation for the children in Pisac. Even a little bit of love will go a long way. Learn more about Kusi Kawsay
