THE STORY:

One day I want to grow up and change the world!!!

Hi! My name is Joi Butler, and I'm a winner! I'm a 13-year old that's in 8th grade that loves basketball, Reeses Peanut Butter cups and eating at nice restaurants. I'm also an Honor Roll student, a purple belt in jujitsu, plays basketball, knows a little bit of Spanish and plays the baritone in the band. When I grow up, I want to be an Engineer like my late Daddy and write like my Mommy. My Mommy always taught me that education comes in many different forms and being a part of Girls Going Global is one way to receive a unique education. Not only will I be able to travel to Belize and learn about their culture, I'm sure this trip will also teach me some things about myself. I also have a short video at the bottom from when I was a Youth Achiever winner in 2013. 

So PLEASE, help me help my Mommy send me to Belize!!! 

Girls Going Global (GGG) is dedicated to empowering girls through travel and cultural exchange. Since our founding in 2012 GGG has successfully hosted two educational travel experiences to Canada and Costa Rica. As we embark on our third international trip we are committed more than ever to produce experiences that incorporate education, service, and adventure. In July 2015 we will be traveling to Belize and collaborating with Peace Corps Belize to host a GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) Summit.

Program Goals and Objectives
The overarching goals of Girls Going Global’s trip to Belize are:

o To spark an interest in international and domestic travel.
o To promote mutual understanding between girls of the United States and girls of Belize.
o To empower youth leaders to become responsible global citizens and contributing members of their 
communities.
This trip to Belize will be jammed packed with cultural and girls empowerment activities including:

. GGG/Peace Corps Girls Leading Our World (GLOW) Belize Empowerment Summit
. Mayan Ruins Tour
. Zip lining excursion
. Rainforest/Jungle Trek

We are committed to advocating for global engagement among adolescent girls and to educating them on the paths to global leadership - to further ensure the success of girls. But we need your help.

Join GGG in making a real difference in the lives of girls as #GGGTakesBelize. We really need your commitment and are counting on your support to meet this goal. Please pledge your support by making a Donation today -- and assist with giving girls access to the globe so they can live their best life stories.
