About Born to be Beautiful

Born to be Beautiful is a charity which was founded in 2011. Our office is located in Cambridge UK. Our charity provides beauty therapy training and skills to victims of abject poverty and modern-day slavery, restoring dignity and hope to lives devastated by exploitation. 

The people we teach have no access to education unless someone steps in and reaches out a hand to help them. We work with a local partner charities and teach our students so they have a professional training and lifelong skill they can build upon, we help all our students get work or set up their own businesses. This way women who previously only had begging to count on now have a career they can be proud of and earn their way out of poverty with dignity and grace.

Running for Born to be Beautiful

I am running races from distances between 10k to Half Marathons throughout the year in aid of Born to be Beautiful in May 2018.
Born to be Beautiful is a charity providing beauty therapy training and skills to victims of abject poverty and modern day slavery, restoring dignity and hope to lives devastated by exploitation. After each training course they give the students, a starter kit, uniform and certificate and help them get jobs or set up their own business.Having volunteered for the charity for over 7 years, I have seen first hand the life changing work that they do. Although a small charity, they have made an incredible impact in both Uganda and India through teaching and training beauty therapy skills to girls who are victims of human trafficking.
The manicure and pedicures skills the girls learn can enable them to earn money on the doorsteps of their house with a simple nail file and polish, helping them break out of the poverty cycle.Born to be beautiful relies entirely on your donations and even the smallest amount makes a large difference. It can be something as the money for a nail file all the way up to building a training school. Their goal is to have salons and schools across the world and help introduce sustainable commerce to communities that have been devastated by exploitation and/or war.

My aim is to raise over £1000.00 for the charity, which will enable them to provide all the students on their next trip in September with uniforms and manicure and pedicure kits.
Thank you for every donation, it all makes an incredible difference

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
