BENEFITING: SHE'S THE FIRST

ORGANIZER: SHE'S THE FIRST

Grizzly Adams

THE STORY:

I am running two half and two full marathons, as well as some shorter distance races, this fall to fundraise for She's the First scholarships, helping girls in low-income countries be the first in their families to graduate from high school. Please consider donating a couple of cents for each mile I run this season, and all donations of any amount are happily accepted. 

100% of the net proceeds raised for She's the First through Sweat for STF go directly to the Scholars at She's the First's partner schools. The school I am raising funds for is the Sacred Valley Project in Peru. 

Sacred Valley Project students come from indigenous Quechua-speaking rural communities, and all have parents who never completed elementary school. Those students who get accepted to the dormitory enter secondary school at a severe disadvantage to their peers, due to a language barrier.

The organization has a number of workshops, classes, and programs to help students succeed academically and to continue to practice trades that have been used in their communities for hundreds of years. For example, students participate in artisanal workshops as well as nutrition and healthy cooking classes. They have weekly seminars on social issues and personal development, and professional tutors come in to give extra support in foundational subjects such as math, Spanish, and communications. The students also receive computation classes and art and dance workshops. The students are actively learning to implement a peer mentorship model, and are becoming more successful with each session. Eventually, students will be ready to conduct their own mentorship workshops with each other, building a strong support base for one another.

Thank you for your donation!
