Girls' Voices: Lucy

"One of the challenges I've had is leaving school in 2015. Because I didn't have the money, I couldn't move on to the next grade.

During that time, I was thinking, and concluded that education is really important." —Lucila Elena Mendoza Ujpan

A scholarship would bring Adelina one step closer to a successful career as a teacher. Girls' Voices, GreaterGood.org's newest signature program, is working with Maya Traditions Foundation to send Adelina and her classmates to school!You can help. For just $12.50, you can send Adelina to school for one week!
