BENEFITING: VILLAGE COOPERATIVE INC
This year we are focusing our efforts on raising awareness on the injustices against women. Working locally and globally to combat issues, such as sex trafficking, domestic violence, early childhood marriage, and female genital mutilation. In the last four years, we have partnered with organizations in three countries that focus on support and empowerment of women. The focus project One Love is sponsoring for 2016 is the second phase of the Samburu Girls Home's building: the kitchen and dining hall. With the help of the Dallas yoga community, the Samburu Girls Foundation built a "safe home" in 2015 to house the girls they rescue from FGM, child marriage, domestic violence and physical/sexual abuse. Through our new Crowdrise page, we aim to raise funding to complete the kitchen and dining hall and provide operating support for one year. Eventually we will get this center to full running capacity to accommodate up to 300 young girls in need. We will continue to offer ongoing support to our partners that rescue, rehabilitate and empower those effected by sex trafficking in Kolkata, India. We also stand locally with Mosaic Family Services to help support those who combat injustice to women in our own backyard. 100% of the proceeds will go towards these projects. Please visit our Partners and Projects pages to find out more specific information.
