Circle of Sisterhood is a non-profit organization that engages in a global humanitarian effort to remove educational barriers for girls and women to break the cycle of poverty and oppression. As sorority women with access to higher education, we are proud to help advocate for educational opportunities for girls across the world. Back in 2011, Tulane's Panhellenic Council voted to adopt Circle of Sisterhood as their official joint philanthropy, with the ultimate goal being to fundraiser enough money to build a school benefitting girls' education in a location less privileged than we are here in the U.S.
In 2017 Tulane Panhellenic sent 16 women to Malawi to partake in our first school build. More recently, in March of 2019, we sent 12 women to Senegal to build our second school. On both Treks, these girls stayed with host families and worked side by side with the people of the villages to build a school and advocate for the importance of education.
Our initiative is our community-wide dance competition, Greek Groove. The entire Tulane Greek Community is coming together to support this amazing philanthropic cause. The event will take place on Thursday, November 7th in McAlister Auditorium on Tulane’s campus and is open to both the Tulane and New Orleans communities.
We are incredibly excited for this opportunity but cannot do it without your help. To provide the community with all of the resources they will need to continue school builds, we need your help. Please consider making a donation here to benefit our school build. If donating on behalf of a Tulane Greek student or sorority please include the organization in the caption!! Thank you, we couldn't do this without support of friends and family like you!
