Donor: Rebecca Ramirez

Nl306ramirez Here at GFC, we honor our donors and supporters and enjoy the relationships we have been able to build with may of you. We also think it important to let you know how your contributions, financial and otherwise, are deeply appreciated.

That is why we like to honor some of you from time to time, to publicly thank you and share your experience with others. This edition of Moxie honors long time donor, Rebecca Ramirez.

Rebecca is a long time supporter of Girls For A Change—in terms of supporting her niece’s participation in the program for the past 3 years and through her generous donations.

Rebecca first decided to donate because she saw the transformed relationship between her niece, Stephanie, with Stephanie’s mom, a GFC coach and long time volunteer. She saw that as Stephanie’s outlook on the world changed, and that as Stephanie realized her power as a young woman, her relationship with her family improved.

Rebecca continues to donate today because she sees how GFC creates a rare space where girls are consistently encouraged to speak their mind and take action on their ideas. GFC creates a space, she says, where girls know they are valued, no matter where they come from, who their family is, and who their friends are. She sees girls learning skills that they can use later in life. Most of all, she sees girls who are learning how to feel good about themselves while creating a change in their communities. She says,

"GFC allows girls to move from victims or passive observers, to powerful, action oriented members of the community."

We honor her commitment to young women and social change, and thank her deeply for her ongoing support.
