About Fania

Matènwa Community Learning Center
Matènwa, Haiti

Fania was born in La Gonave, Haiti and was raised in the community of Nan Sauveur. She's been a student at Matenwa Community Learning Center. for 13 years and says one of the biggest challenges of going to school is affording the materials. Fania enjoys studying, spending time with friends, and debating with her friends and family about the current events and issues in her community, "When I go to school, I learn how to prepare for a good future. I receive a good education that helps make me a better person. I see a lot of good role models so I have a better idea of what my future could look like. I hope at the very least it is better than the lives of my parents". - Fania Bijoux . Unfortunately, Fania cannot financially meet the requirements of the school and needs money for fees.

About Girls' Voices:

Girls' Voices is a pilot program of GreaterGood.org intended to raise funds for girls' secondary education through media made by girls. Our goal is for girls around the world to connect to their voice, their dreams for their education, and use the power of digital media to create images, stories, and visual metaphors that can communicate their strength and potential to the world. The intention of this project is to empower girls to utilize videography and to raise funds, 100% of which will directly contribute to scholarship funds for girls facing financial barriers to completing secondary education.
