SUPPORT OUR VAN FUNDRAISER

          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!

If you have a van or bus you aren't using or know of someone who does or if you can help us to get one PLEASE HELP!!! Call 804-420- 2267 or email our CEO at angela@girlsforachange.org for more information or visit our Go Fund Me page to make a donation TODAY!

2018 CAMP DIVA THEME

 This year's Camp Diva theme is MakeHer Space: Hands on Learning by Making. Our girls will explore our Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) Lab. As they are immersed in these subjects, they begin to understand that girls, too, can be pioneers in these areas. Girls will spend each day learning about programming, sewing, robotics and more with state-of-the-art machinery, including 3-D printers, vinyl cutters and laser engravers, Raspberry Pi computers, and more!
