The Rotary eClub of the State of Jefferson Foundation is embarking upon a major fundraising effort to help us continue the success of our Signature Project: Let’s Leave No Girl Behind.
The prize is a week’s stay (donated by Rotarian Jackie Oakley) at any El Cid Vacations Club Resortlocated in Mexico, England, Spain or Portugal (transportation and meals not included.)
Raffle tickets are $25 each or 5 for $100. There will be no more than 400 sold. All net proceeds will go towards funding the "Let’s Leave No Girl Behind" Project. The raffle will end December 31, 2017 and the Drawing will be held on January 31, 2018.
This project is providing funding for young Mayan women to learn to read and write Spanish, the Guatemalan national language. Only 10% of indigenous girls in this region of Guatemala graduate from primary school and they only learn the indigenous Mayan language. This is a major handicap to their prospects for further education. Let’s Leave No Girl Behind provides funding that gives these young women a chance at literacy so that they may break the cycle of poverty. In addition, we also provide solar lighting so that they can continue their studies in their home at night. This project is in partnership with Adopt A Village, Guatemala and The Rotary eClub of the State of Jefferson. Unused funds will be restricted in our service projects account. (There have been a few people using Apple IPads/Safari Browsers that had difficulty and were unable to complete the transaction. Please contact us if that occurs.)
