Born to be Beautiful is a charity that teaches beauty therapy training and skills to victims of abject poverty.  Our goal is to restore dignity and hope to lives devastated by exploitation.  We currently work in India and Uganda. The courses are full time and taught over 2 weeks. On completion of a Born to be Beautiful course, our students are given a starter kit, suitable for up to 50 treatments, a uniform and a certificate. Supported by the local charity we work with we then help each woman get work, go onto further education or set up their own businesses. Our training courses are held in large towns or capital cities to ensure our students work in a non-competitive environment and can support each other’s ventures.
Our vision is to provide continued support to our students once they have trained by extending access to further training in business, marketing and finance management. We also seek to coach students who would like to continue on to become beauty therapy trainers, open their own salons or beauty training schools and to enable them to earn recognised qualifications within their own countries.  We encourage our classes to set up peer support groups to further their growth and capacity.
