Once again we come together to help the girls of Miches with the 2017 edition of “Soy niña, soy importante” (SNSI) or “I’m a Girl, I’m Important” summer camp, with the mission of offering at-risk girls 9 to 12 years old a fun, safe and educational experience.
This year the SNSI campaign includes many surprises, the first of which is an increase in the number of campers, impacting the lives of 300 girls from Miches. In addition to this, we have also formed an Ambassadors Network, comprised of individuals of both national and international recognition, among them journalists, entrepreneurs, representatives of multilateral agencies, public figures and government officials.
These individuals unite their voices to raise awareness about the importance of investing in the well-being and development of girls to achieve a more just and equitable society and contribute to the eradication of poverty.
We recently celebrated their alliance to SNSI with a discussion on the importance of protecting girls in the Dominican Republic, which included the participation of Sonia Vásquez, auxiliary representative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in the country.
You too can make a difference!
