The Bestow Sisterhood is a collective of beauty therapists and skincare clinics throughout New Zealand who are creating a brighter future for girls in rural Cambodia. 

The Bestow Sisterhood has been created by three sisters: Janine Tait and Robyn Fairweather of Bestow Beauty, and Denise Arnold, of the Cambodia Charitable Trust.

“When we open our eyes and our hearts, we begin to understand that we are part of a global sisterhood. Every woman is our sister. We can help the woman down the street from us and we can change the life of a girl in Cambodia who we will never meet. Both matter. We love to see women helping women, and we’d love you to become part of the Bestow Sisterhood.”

Denise Arnold
Founder of Cambodia Charitable Trust

“We are very fortunate to have the privileges and the freedom that we have here in New Zealand. Women in Cambodia are born into poverty through no fault of their own. I believe it is my responsibility to give young rural Cambodian girls the same chances to succeed that I had as a girl. I’m grateful to my sister, Janine, for gathering a sisterhood of compassionate Kiwi women who believe in wellbeing for all women. Together, we can help these girls towards a brighter future.”

Janine Tait
Founder of
Bestow Beauty

“As beauty therapists, our whole professional lives are dedicated to women and wellness. The Bestow Sisterhood is about spreading the love beyond our clinics and taking our place as part of a global sisterhood. I invite you to open up your heart a little wider and consider caring for a little sister in Cambodia. By sponsoring her education, you will change her future. Bestow sponsors six girls through the Cambodia Charitable Trust because we know it makes a difference.”

Robyn Fairweather
Operations Manager
Bestow Beauty

“The Bestow Sisterhood is about women helping women. My sisters are both inspiring, influential women and I am proud to partner with them to promote wellness for women both here in New Zealand and in Cambodia. I think it’s important for you to know that Denise doesn’t draw a salary from the CCT and all volunteers cover their own expenses. This means every cent of your sponsorship donation goes towards improving the life of your little sister.”

The Bestow Sisterhood Tea

All Bestow Profits Donated to Cambodia Charitable Trust

To celebrate the launch of the Bestow Sisterhood we are delighted to introduce Generositea. This beautiful rose-coloured tea is an organic blend of lemongrass, peppermint, hibiscus, cinnamon and cardamom.

All of our profits from the sale of Generositea will be donated to the Cambodia Charitable Trust to support their wider projects like developing new schools, gardens and health programmes in rural Cambodia.

Sponsor A Girl | Change A Life

Our dream is for every Bestow clinic to sponsor at least one ‘little sister’ through Denise’s charity, The Cambodia Charitable Trust. The six girls below are sponsored by Bestow.

For just $40 per month, your business can change the future for one Cambodian girl by supporting her education.

Girls who don’t go to school are vulnerable to sex trafficking or can end up married and bearing children at a tragically young age. Through education, girls are protected and given the opportunity to develop a healthy, happy, purposeful life.

Janine Tait and her sisters share the story behind the Bestow Sisterhood at our national holistic skincare conference.
