ABOUT THE MARIPOSA GARDEN
Over the last 8 months at the Mariposa Center for Girls, a garden has sprouted from sand and young girls have grown into community members that know how to grow their own food, nourishing their bodies and the planet.

ABOUT THE MARIPOSA DR FOUNDATION
“Girls are the most powerful force for change.”
The Mariposa DR Foundation was founded in 2009 by a group of caring volunteers and children who were inspired by past works, and the urgent need for community-based solutions to end poverty.
Our mission is inspired by the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. These goals include eradicating extreme poverty and hunger, achieving universal primary education, promoting gender equality and empowering women, ensuring environmental sustainability, and developing a global partnership for development. Achieving these goals is dependent upon the education and empowerment of women and young girls.
