Kester Black is more than just a nail polish company.

We’re a group of creatives with pretty substantial values. We believe it’s important to give back, so from now on $1 from every online order is donated to the outstanding charities listed below.

Don’t worry, we haven’t bumped-up our prices, all donations made come directly from our profit and go straight into the hands of your chosen organisation. We’ve spent hours researching hundreds of charities, and believe that these four are truly exceptional. Every dollar makes a difference, so we’ll pass yours on.

Educate Girls

Educate Girls empowers communities to facilitate girls’ education in rural India and help them take a stand against gender inequality.

Working directly with government schools, parents and village leaders, and with the help of over 8,000 community volunteers (called Team Balika), we have helped ensure over 90% enrollment and higher attendance for girls as well as enhanced learning outcomes for all children.

Established in 2007, Educate Girls has grown from a 500-school pilot project in the Pali district of Rajasthan to now serving over 12,000 schools in some of India’s most educationally backward regions. Since inception, we have enrolled 1,50,000 girls, across 8,000+ villages in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh and we have reached 3.8 million beneficiaries overall.
