“In 2012, in the small mountain communities of Atzitzintla and Texmalaquilla, a Peace Corps Volunteer decided to reach out to the young women in her community with the intentions of forming a camp. Four years later that intention has led her and her team of dedicated friends to organize 4 camps, connect with 6 rural Mexican communities, touch the lives of over 108 teenage girls, and financially and emotionally support 7 young women in their quest for a college education. This swirl of direct action and positive motivation is known as Mariposas: Mujeres Cambiando el Mundo.”
