This year to celebrate my 25th birthday, I want to encourage all my friends, family, and supporters to join me in giving to GirlSportWorks. This year I have the incredible opportunity to be working as a Project Manager for this impressive non-profit. We run a mobile sports and girls empowerment program in four impoverished areas of Cusco, Peru. Even $1, if we all work together, will help us with many of our needs and projects on the ground in Cusco.
Just to give you an idea of where your money will go: $5 wil buy healthy snacks for 20 girls at Los Nogales Elementary School, $10 will buy needed supplies (pennies, soccer balls, markers) for our lovely students, and $20 will cover the entrance fee for 20 girls´ first time to the pool! If you are interested in making a larger donation: $200 will buy sturdy athletic shoes to ensure safety during athletics for all of our teen moms at Casa Mantay and $500 will allow us to transform and increase the safety of our play area at our athletic field in La Independencia! Anything in-between will go directly to these and other great projects!
