Your support is needed to help send girls to Brazil #FundGirlsToBrazil via http://www.gofundme.com/Fun...
This once in a lifetime opportunity is designed to fully immerse girls between the ages of 12 and 18 into the art, culture, music, dance and history of Brazil. Our aim is to counteract the effects of racism, sexism and colorism, through a cross-cultural collaboration between African Americans and Afro Brazilians. A consortium of community organizations led by Girls For A Change is collaborating to send 10-20 teen girls to Brazil.
The participants in Essence of a Goddess study abroad program are scheduled to spend 12 days in Salvador da Bahia, former capitol of Brazil, exploring the rich cultural traditions of Afro-Brazilian culture, history, art, dance, and drumming. The young ladies are going to be involved in workshops with Afro-Brazilian educational organizations, community groups, cultural institutions, social justice projects, and primarily with DIDA, internationally renown all-female samba school. Participants are also going to spend 3 days in Rio de Janeiro, exploring African Heritage sites and world famous attractions. The Essence of a Goddess study abroad program is carefully designed to insure that young women expand their worldview, meet peers going through similar issues, and experience personal transformation.
Our study abroad program is a cross-cultural journey, a dynamic collaboration between the African American and Afro-Brazilian community.
