The Bowtie Challenge is a fund-raising initiative that was born as a result of my passion for teaching, my interest in fashion and my desire to make a difference in the community where I work.
As an international teacher working in schools overseas, I have come across educational inequalities in every country where I have taught and I always wondered what I could do to make a difference in the lives of these children.
Inspired by Sheena Matheiken and the Uniform Project, I decided to launch “The Bow Tie Challenge” where I pledge to wear a different bow tie every single day for 365 days a year beginning January 1st, 2018 to raise money for Afrika Tikkun – an organization that supports the education of children in underprivileged communities in South Africa by providing balanced nutrition and skills development to career and job readiness training. In an effort to support local businesses all the bow ties will be designed and made in South Africa.
