Summary

The Mariposa Center for Girls is a first-rate facility that inspires achievement. We are transforming the property into a beautiful campus where girls come to engage in sports, receive academic tutoring, have access to libraries and computers, receive job and life skills training and health and wellness care. It is a place where girl champions can share knowledge on how empowering girls will lift entire families out of generational poverty.

Challenge

Girls are the most underserved, undervalued population on earth, yet they are the key to breaking the cycle of generational poverty for their families. There are few opportunities for girls outside of the home to gain life long skills that will help them become independent and successful in their future. If a girl stays in school, remains happy and healthy and gains skills, she will marry later, have fewer, healthier children and earn an income that she will invest back into her family.

Solution

The Mariposa Center for Girls is a model for the world. A beautiful space for the girls of our community where they can come and learn valuable skills that will set them off on the right path to become active leaders for social change. Our programs offer an integrated approach to educating, empowering and employing girls, where success in one supports and enhances success in the others, cultivating lasting change and ultimately empowering them to break the cycle of generational poverty.

Long-Term Impact

The Mariposa Center for Girls will become self-sustaining by hosting community engaged learning groups and providing job opportunities for girls where they can earn an income and generate revenue for the upkeep of the center. It will drastically change the lives of girls in our community for generations to come and we will have a global impact.
