Sunrise and Sunshine
One of our biggest focuses through the Flourishing World Initiative is education. We believe that children are to be cherished and one way we honor that is through our Sunrise and Sunshine Scholar Program.
Our Sunrise Scholarship program is for kids in Kindergarten through Twelfth Grade. Since 2014, we have invested $150,000 in the communities where our artisans work by helping pay for school tuition for their children.
Our Sunshine Scholarship program launched in 2023 when another social impact brand, called Sseko, merged under the Noonday Collection brand. We have continued their legacy in supporting students pursuing higher education in Uganda. Since the merge, we have invested almost twenty thousand dollars in financial aid for scholars in Uganda who have graduated from the Cornerstone Leadership Academy.

Jania & Neema
Neema, a single mother, faced numerous challenges while raising Tania. From struggling to make ends meet to wrestling with specialized health care for Tania, Neema's journey was far from easy. However, she remained determined to provide her daughter with a better life and a quality education. Unfortunately, finding a school that catered to Tania's unique needs seemed like an impossible task. Neema and Tania's lives took an unexpected turn when she received a Sunshine Scholarship. Now in her final year of high school, Tania's graduation is a testament to her resilience, determination, and the power of education. Tania's success is not only a personal achievement but also a reflection of the transformative impact that the Sunshine Scholarship program has had on her journey.
