BENEFITING: YSPANIOLA INCORPORATED

EVENT DATE: Jan 03, 2014

THE STORY:

About Me:

Thank you for visiting my page!  I'm an overly organized, passionate, ambitious 23 year-old who believes that we can all make a positive difference in the world, no matter how big or small our contribution. The causes I'm most passionate about are providing quality education to all people and social justice issues. I have a huge soft spot for Latin America, influenced by the people I've met in my life and the influence of Latino culture in the U.S.  Please help me meet my goal of fundraising for my next project in Latin America: teaching Spanish literacy in a marginalized community.

About My Fundraiser:

Yspaniola is a non-profit organization which aims to empower marginalized batey communities in The Dominican Republic through education, scholarships, and resources which will help them come out of poverty. I will be joining Yspaniola to teachi for about 10 months. I'll be teaching Spanish literacy and supporting the local team with other community development projects in Batey Libertad. Bateyes are rural communities that grew out of the sugarcane industry starting in the 1900s, but today they also include rice fields and other crops.  Many Haitians are recruited to work in bateys and the towns become permanent settlements that receive little support. 

Through this experience, I will be able to work towards my personal goal of helping others and my professional goal of working on educational and international development projects. It costs about USD $250 a month for a volunteer to live in La Esperanza. This includes food, housing, transportation, and healthcare. Your donation will help me cover the cost of living in the Dominican Republic for 10 - 12 months as a volunteer intern, and it will defray costs for Yspaniola so the organization's funds can be used for improving the Literacy Center and towards resources for the residents of the batey. Thank you for your time and generosity in supporting my cause!

besos y abrazos,

Aimee
