THE STORY:

I am proud to announce that I have officially reached my $10,000 fundraising goal! Thank you so much for everyone who is supporting me and who has been reaching out to me, I really couldn't have done this without you all.

This is my blog while in Panama: http://ellypanamonium.blogspot.com/ 

You can also email me: ellygracewithers@gmail.com 

My name is Elly Withers and this year I will be volunteering with the Young Adult Service Corps (YASC) through the Episcopal Church. I will be working in Panama for a year-long placement with the nonprofit Promesa, which is run by Panamanians outside of the capital. I will work on various environmental projects, including sustainable agriculture with indigenous communities in the territories of Bayano and Madungandi. The motto of Promesa is “to promote food sovereignty, care for the environment, and promote social justice in farm working.”

I am excited about dedicating my life to service through this organization, especially since it is directly related to my undergraduate studies. I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in May with a degree in Spanish and Global Studies (with a focus in Environment).

Thank you so much for your support!

Blessings and Hugs,

Elly
