Meet Massange

THE STORY:

Looming budget cuts jeopardize the only program serving African girls in New York City. We know that this work is too important to the goals and educational aspirations of African girls to not take action. So, we turn to you to keep this important work alive. Because the young women we serve are such individuals, we'd like to introduce them to you one at a time.

Meet Massange
Massange, age 18, is a freshman at Mt. Holyoke College.  She is from Guinea and became a GELI Member four years ago.  Below she shares one of her first experiences with GELI...


"Are you always this quiet? Is the one phrase I remember from my first meeting with Ramatu, the GELI program director. Before I start participating in the GELI program I had been brainwashed into thinking that as an African girl, I needed to be quiet, and cautious that I was basically nothing but a woman.  After my first year of participating in the program, I came to understand my true personality. GELI after school program became that space where I connect with the other African girls who were going through the same situation as me,where I express myself anyway I wanted it to. Indeed the program made me realizemy leadership skills and build confident in myself as a young woman."

Why $1000?

Every $1000 we raise will be dedicated to one young woman who has benefited from GELI's programming. For only $1,000 we are able to provide each young woman with

intensive one-on-one academic support support in putting off marriage until she is socially, developmentally and educationally prepared specialized college prep classes for immigrant students (regardless of their residency status) culturally relevant sexual and reproductive health information the skills to fight for social change that reflects her needs and that of other immigrant girls
