Richard Walter - “Do Not Try to Sell Your Screenplay”
GIRL POWER PROJECT
The Girl Power Project, a collaboration between by The Collective Heart and Unstoppable Foundation, is a path to empowerment. This year-long program teaches critical life and business skills to 100 promising adolescent girls in Uganda, aiming to give them a foundation from which they can grow into leaders who can run businesses, rebuild infrastructure, and forever transform their communities, their economies and their culture. Through this program, girls are trained to empower other girls, and the ripple effect has the potential to create 10,000 female leaders in Uganda who are committed to a self-sustaining Africa.
Your financial contribution will make it possible to send internationally-published photographer Margot Duane to Uganda to document the girls participating in the Girl Power Project. The photographs, which will illustrate the girls in their villages, will be used as the basis for a book and other communication tools that will help increase awareness and secure additional funding for this vital project.
Around 1AM on 4/29, Eli Reyes and three other cyclists were cut off in downtown Oakland by a driver. He then grabbed Eli through the open window and dragged her before dropping her. When she fell, the truck ran over her legs, breaking her femur and leaving her covered in deep cuts and bruises.
While Eli is in a rehab center and recovering, this event has been incredibly traumatic for her. The emotional work of healing from such a act of extreme violence will take time, space, lots of love and depend on her being able to reduce the stress as much as possible.
One of the biggest additional stressors for her right now is financial. Our $15,000 goal is just an estimate and may only scratch the surface of the medical costs. Reaching it, however, would help take off the immediate pressure created by her inability to work for the foreseeable future.
Please consider giving to this fundraiser both to support Eli with the hardest phase of her recovery and also as a way of giving back in two wonderful human beings who have been working so hard for the last year (to the day!) investing in us, their community and their city.
