Why should I have dreams if I can not fulfill them? - Mytazia Coles age 13
I realized isolation is the Silent Killer of the most amazing dreams I have ever heard from girls in our community. It is our responsibility to ensure each girl has access to every resource necessary to achieve her dream said. Angela Patton - CEO of GFAC
Since we have opened our center we have come across instances in which parents want to send their daughters to our program for out-of-school activities. Unfortunately, too many working families, are isolated from education and employment because of limited or no access to transportation as well. Lack of access to transportation can limit a person’s ability to go to school, hold a job, and take part in the community.
Due to our current lack of sufficient funds our center cannot purchase a van to transport girls from school to our center and community activities. Without reliable transportation, we are unable to serve girls who could benefit from being in a safe, supportive learning environment. We aim to reach as many girls in Central Virginia as possible! Funds are needed to purchase a van to transport girls to our center where they can get ahead of the learning curve, grow up a safe and healthy environment, finish high school continues their education, love where she works, and give back to their communities.
Do one thing today...Donate and join Girls For A Change's 30 day- Fundraising Challenge to purchase a van for the center. It may sound like a big endeavor. Well, it is. But with some brainstorming, help from friends and family, time and passion We can do and We will win!
