BENEFITING: Good Neighbors Inc
I have seen with my eyes for too long, and I am now seeing with my heart and where I am choosing to go. I am doing this not only to ignite the fire that some people have trouble doing by themselves, but I am also doing this to make it a platform for my future. I have had the greatest struggle of not receiving the love I have been given, because I felt like I didn't deserve anything. Even in my lowest moments I knew that love was all there was left, and I chose that path. Because of that, I have now the confidence to do things through him who strengthens me. This country is my culture and I enjoy helping the culture that makes me who I am. I have experience with Good Neighbors Paraguay for 2 years, and now it is time to amplify myself even more by doing bigger things with my psychology studies. I ask that you give to help me on this journey if God willing.
What will I be doing? My focus is more towards adolecents with regards to sex education. Prostituiton is a popular and common thing in this country, and I want to show the girls the dangers of not having protection when all you want to do is have fun. I am also aiming towards medical checks with children in the slums. I am a firm believer in children should not be suffering at a young age, so I want to be there and help with their basic medical needs.
When? Next summer!
Who? This is a worldwide organization called "Good Neighbors" I have great experiences with this organization for thr past two year.
Where? (The title of this fundraiser)
Why? Because this is my calling. I have had a warm feeling about this trip ever since coming back from Good Neighbors Paraguay in South America. In the Dominican Republic, I know that I can offer people things that they have never seen before. I want to inspire these people just by the way I live.
