Girl Rising Movie

Thank you to all the 219 people who ventured forth on a cold, windy May evening to see the Girl Rising movie. If you were inspired by the movie, please visit the girlrising website for more info and spread the word to others.
Many of the women I have met in Haiti are similiar to the girls in the movie – motivated to make a difference in their lives, but needing someone to help them along the way. They are willing to work hard to improve the lives of themselves and their children, even though barely literate themselves. Microfinance loans allow them the ability to do just that, while also giving them empowerment and prestige in their local community. We would like to start a new group of 10 women this summer, so please consider donating to make a difference in the life of a Haitian woman.
