Ayana on her way to school
Ayana and other girls in St. John need your help.
Last year, Sisterhood Agenda registered Ayana and her friends for womanhood training at the New Year’s Eve Youth Extravaganza in Cruz Bay, St. John. Thanks to your help, she also attended the first Female Empowerment Conference for Girls in the Virgin Islands and received educational materials for the year. As a participant of A Journey Toward Womanhood, Positive Media, and Girl Band, Ayana is learning how to create her own future and be a poised, confident leader. Your contribution helped Ayana get access to a lifetime of learning about supporting and loving herself, developing healthy habits, and being successful. Thank you!
However, there are other girls who urgently need this type of support. On the small island of St. John, there is no public high school, women’s center, YWCA or Girl Scout chapter. Many girls, unable to see other alternatives, become pregnant at an early age, drop out of school, and rely on government support to feed themselves and their new families. Some girls need one-on-one mentoring and ways to express themselves positively.
On October 19th, GlobalGiving.org is matching at 30% all online donations up to $1,000 per donor per project! There is $100,000 available in matching funds on October 19th. Once these matching funds are used, no more matching funds will be applied.
Please donate to our project and support the girls waiting to be successful! Your help is urgently needed and much appreciated!
In the Spirit of Sisterhood,
