YO CREO (I believe)
Organized by: Yeny Garcia
Event Name: Keep Supporting CGI U Commitments
AMOUNT RAISED IN PREVIOUS ROUND: $1425
YO CREO is a youth empowerment project that will train young girls to develop independent living skills for those preparing to “age out” of the orphanage. This CGI University Commitment to Action will work with approximately 20 orphan girls between the ages of 15-20 years old. The organizer Yeny grew up in this same orphanage herself giving her first-hand insight and experience into the challenges they face and the skills they need.
In order to develop those independent living skills, they will receive preparation in money management, job training, interpersonal relationships and sexual education. We will accomplish this through workshops, community building activities and classroom classes. The ultimate goal is for these girls to be successful in their future workplace, studies, and personal lives.
Yeny is a young leader from Honduras pursuing business and leadership training as a SEED scholar at Northcentral Technical College in Wausau, Wisconsin.
The Scholarship for Education and Economic Development (SEED Program) is funded by USAID and administered by Georgetown University.
