Get Polly to Nepal to Empower Nepali Girls
Organized by: Polly Medved
EVENT DATE Dec 18, 2014
Think about where you would be today if you didn't receive the education you have.
I recently made the commitment to raise $5,000 to support Empower Nepali Girls (ENG). I have increased those fundraising efforts to $9,000 in support of this foundation.
ENG's mission is to empower and support neglected, marginalized, and at-risk girls and young women in Nepal, especially those who are at greatest risk to be forced into early marriage, sold into sex slavery, or abandoned as orphans. They provide scholarships, mentoring, career guidance, and subsistence for children who would not have the opportunity to attend school and pursue future careers in medicine, engineering, business, teaching, and other professions.
I have a separate fundraising page underway to raise the funds DIRECTLY for ENG and I encourage you to visit the Empower Nepali Girls website to see how this great charity empowers and supports these girls and young women in Nepal.
If I reach my fundraising milestone of $5,000, I have the opportunity to travel to Nepal and work directly with the girls my fundraising efforts will support. This is where I am asking for your help, to assist with the expenses associated with this once in a lifetime experience. Your donations will go towards my flight, trip lodging and food. It is estimated this will cost a total of ~$5,000.
Although this fundraising page is set up to support me directly, I highly encourage you to help me reach my goal of $9,000 for ENG by visiting my fundraising page, or the Empower Nepali Girls website.
Please remember to reference Polly M. if you go directly to the ENG donation page so I can get credit for your donation towards my fundraising efforts. I am confident I will personally contribute to the success of this program.
Please help me get the word out by sharing my fundraising link.
Any donations I receive through this page that are not needed for my personal expenses associated with my trip to Nepal will be donated to Empower Nepali Girls!
Thank you for support to Get Polly to Nepal!
