When we support the growth and empowerment of women and girls, we raise the quality of life for a family, a community, a state, a country and the world. This is because when women lead they not only lead businesses, but they also lead in their community, they fight for their children, and they give voice to issues that are important to our collective future — like education and health care. Your support has already impacted five communities and over 150 young women, join us or continue your support to ensure more young women are allowed to fulfill their dreams and find their voice.
The low cost of higher education in Mexico means that just a little money can go a long way! A donation of just $1600 can pay for a full year of college for a girl who maybe never thought a university education was possible. It sounds clichéd, but it’s true – for less (much less) than the cost of a Starbuck’s coffee a day, you can change a life!
If a year or semester sponsorship is out of reach, give any amount you can. We will join your donation with those of others to fund scholarships, Camp Mariposas or Club Mariposas activities. Because all Mariposas workers are volunteers, your donations go directly to help the girls!
Raise money and awareness by hosting a party for Mariposas. Bringing friends and family together to share the causes that are dearest to us is a great way to join the movement. Whether you raise funds or just spread the word about our good work, we’d love to have you get involved!
Contact us and let us know what you have in mind, and we will send you:
- Literature and take-aways for your guests
- Other relevant materials that will make your party a success
We encourage you to think creatively! Could Mariposas be a ‘Cause of the Month’ for your business or book club? Could you create a student group on your campus around women’s issues? The possibilities are endless!
