THE STORY:

Hi all!

For those of you that don't know me, my name is Karime Blanco, and I am currently volunteering for an orphanage in Mexico, Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos, as their Women's Empowerment Coordinator. I currently facilitate a program called Chicas Poderosas, which focuses on creating a safe space for the highschool girls to discuss their experiences, gain confidence, and encourage them to think critically about their lives, and find positive solutions to issues that they face, and will face in life.

Lectures, workshops, creative projects, field trips, activities, service projects, readings and conversations offer the girls the opportunity to think critically about the factors that shape their perspectives about themselves and women, and to create greater awareness of their rights as women and human beings.

I've loved holding and planning these workshops for the girls, however in order to adequately fund a lot of great trips and activities, I'm asking for some help from you all. This is a trully remarkable group of girls, and I would love to be able to take them to museums, and have socials with professional women in town, or even just for special treats during our Women's Movie Nights. Anything helps!! A dollar goes a long way! Thank you!!
