We are thrilled to announce that Mariposa won the first ever Global Giving Girl Effect Challenge!
2011 has been a year of tremendous growth at The Mariposa DR Foundation and realizing our potential is only possible with the support of thoughtful people like you.
This past fall was packed with lots of activities for the Mariposa girls including tennis, swimming, health and nutrition classes, sewing, art, dance, field trips and more!
On November 29th we took a very special field trip to Santiago to see the EVEOKE dance performance of Julia Alvarez's "In the Time of the Butterflies" - the girls enjoyed a modern dance interpretation of the famous story of the Mirabal sisters and got to meet famous author Julia Alvarez.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to all who supported Mariposa in 2011. It's been a great year.
Wishing you a warm, peaceful and very happy holiday season!
Mariposa Girls with famous author Julia Alvarez!
