Final Project Report

By Amina Evangelista Swanepoel | Project Leader

Thank you so much to all of you who pledged your support and donated to this project. We appreciate your help so much!

Unfortunately, we have not raised anywhere near the amount we needed to fully get this project off the ground. We are now making our plans for 2017 and are hopeful that we will still be able to help the girls within this community even without the funds for a concerted and directed project.

Though we didn't raise all that was needed, your donations did go towards helping empower women and young people. We had two events within this Badjao community and while those aren't enough, they are definitely a solid start. We educated parents on the importance of keeping girls in school and delaying childbearing and marriage. We also met with many teen parents and offered them free clinical services so they can space the births of any future children.

Thank you so much again for your support and encouragement of us. We couldn't have done what we did without you!
