About us
why we exist

For 12 years I have suffered from acne and low self-esteem because of how people saw me from my physical appearance. Often times I would wish could just show people that I actually have a good heart although my face is not so flawless. I wished people would view beauty through the lens of a person’s interaction with people than how flawless their skin looks. I wonder what would change if our eyes would really be opened, if we could see the depth of a person’s heart and mind, instead of ever-changing physical body. I wonder how many women would start believing in themselves and their abilities without having to worry about how the society will deem them as ugly because of pimples that decided to grow on your face.! I love how the bible defines a beauty of a woman: “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised, honor her for all that her hands have done”. (Proverbs 31:30-31a)   From learning how I have suffered myself, that is when I decided that it has to end with me, I never want to see or hear another woman with a low self-esteem or confidence in my entire life, and HeartOfPearl was conceived!

HeartOfPearl is a non-profit organization that was formed in an effort to raise awareness about the negative impact acne skin condition has on sufferers and family members, to support and to dispense charitable funds to assist with treatment-related expenses.             

                             OUR MISSION

We dream of a world where its members acknowledge and accept their acne in a positive way and assist them to move on.             

                             OUR VISION

We aim to help women embrace the beauty that is in their heart and soul, knowing that beauty isn’t only in the appearance.

upcoming events

 sanitary packs distribution

Free sanitary napkins will be distributed to rural girls, new mothers and especially young ladies studying in government schools. As we all are aware that most women develop acne during their menstrual cycle/monthly period, So Under this campaign our volunteers will visit rural area/townships/ Govt. Schools and villages for creating awareness among adolescent girls and young women about how to embrace the beauty that is their heart and accept acne in a positive way. 

To support girls in crisis, our organization will be visiting adolescent girls and young women at Harry Gwala Secondary School to distribute sanitary towels. The distribution will be conducted in partnership with The Ukama project, an organisation that we work closely with in Cape Town.
