BENEFITING: VE GLOBAL
As a proud Latina, born in Managua, Nicaragua, I have always dreamed of visiting other Latin American countries to learn more about how their history, conflicts, and culture differ and relate to my own. In addition, growing up in Nicaragua made me passionate about issues related to inquality and social justice for children in Latin America.
At the end of 2015, I was selected as one of the 17 Social Science Scholars at Florida State University. This honor has allowed to travel to Santiago, Chile for 3 months and 3 weeks, where I will be interning and volunteering for VE Global.
This AMAZING organization works to foster the development of children at social risk in Chile by training and empowering volunteers to serve as positive role models, educators and advocates of social justice. VE Global's Volunteers work with children at one of VE's partner organization which include residential homes and community centers.
After spending my first three weeks at VE Global and their partner organizations, I have nothing but positive remarks about that work that they do and how they do it. This organization is very attuned to its values of community, empowerement, POSITIVITY, responsability, and integrity.
Please condider donating ANY amount towards my fundraising goal. The money will help VE Global achieve its mission and vision of creating equal opportunities for children.
