BENEFITING: SHE'S THE FIRST

ORGANIZER: SHE'S THE FIRST

Grace Bronstone

THE STORY:

Every few months, I help initiate a fundraiser for She's the First in my small town of Truckee. Already, I've raised enough to send one girl to school! Read below for more on this amazing organization- you'll be hooked!


A few summers ago, I journeyed to Peru and Ecuador. As I visited various towns and farms, an uncanny feeling festered inside of me. Some pivotal aspect was missing from these people’s lives. One afternoon, as I visited a local flea market, I finally put my finger on it.

Schools. Books, pens, small buildings with desks and a chalkboard. Education. Virtually nonexistent in these rural Peruvian towns. This realization shook me, a girl from a relatively affluent area who took her many of her educational opportunities for granted, as I got lost among the rows of market stalls. All sold the exact same touristy items, and all had school-age children running around. It was a weekday afternoon; these children, I thought, should be in school, not wandering aimlessly. When I stepped onto the returning bus, I realized this reality is not limited to Peru.

She's the First enriches leadership and empowerment in women by providing educational opportunites for young girls from third world countries. Without She's the First, the girls I saw aimlessly sitting in the stalls will never escape. 

This is OUR chance to support these girls as they become the first to graduate high school in their families, and even in their communities!

Support my efforts, and especially these talented girls, by donating to my chapter!


On June 4th, I ran a local 10K race (Truckee Running Festival) to support She's the First! My sponsors donated a total of $300- almost enough to send 1 girl scholar to school for 1 year!


She’s the First is an incredible, non-profit organization dedicated to providing scholarships to girls in low-income countries who will be the first in their families to graduate high school.


Donate to this crowdrise site to help me reach my goal of $800. This will send 1 Peruvian girl to school for 2 years!


100% of what I raise goes directly to the girls I’m sponsoring!

Every dollar counts toward women's education!!
