Chile – Girls’ Clubs
Abolishing Global Slavery
GoalWe are seeking to raise $5,500 to support 10 girls’ clubs for one year.
SummaryChile 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
DescriptionErica 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
