GoalThe goal of this project is to provide funding to support girls' clubs in Chile.
SummaryThis project seeks to raise $5,500 to support ten girls clubs annually.
DescriptionChile has one of the fastest growing teen pregnancy rates in the world. Rise Up Little Girl is a network of clubs for girls ages 8–12 in some of Chile’s poorest communities. Each club provides spiritual, social and academic support through mentoring, tutoring, art and friendship in seven communities. Erica Villablanca is a pastor’s wife and coordinator of Rise Up Little Girl. She strives to give women and girls a vision for their future that will help them overcome the daily challenges of violence, poverty and substance abuse that are so prevalent. Rise Up Little Girl currently works with 65 girls. As a result of this ministry, many of them have improved their academic performance, come to know Christ and developed healthy friendships. These funds will provide art supplies, snacks, training materials and two all-day field trips for 100 girls throughout the year. It is anticipated that this project will not only provide a support network for vulnerable girls, but also encourage girls in the clubs to finish high school, and that it will also reduce the teen and pre-teen pregnancy rate among the girls participating in the project.
Suggested Gifts$46 sponsors one girls’ club for a month. $550 sponsors one girls’ club for a year.
Prayer RequestsPray that the girls will learn skills and develop relationships that will help them with daily challenges. Pray for the leaders of the girls' clubs as they work to give each girl a new vision for her future.
