San Simon School
San Simon Village, AZ
Brandee lives in a remote village in southwest Arizona. Her school is an hour and a half bus ride away, and the grocery store is off the reservation, and an hour and a half drive from home. Brandee describes her village as very poor, where a lot of people don't have a home or food.
"When I grow up I want to be either a baker or a scientist. I want to be a baker because my mom was a baker. At school I'm in gifted and talented and we are making a lot of stuff that makes me think I want to be a scientist. Right now I'm trying to make little car that will come to you like robotics. Another thing I want to be is an artist. I want to sell these animals that I color. If I sell the animal pictures I want go give some money to charity and then give some to my mom and grandma. I want to give to my mom because it's expensive to take care of me. I want to give to my grandma so she can buy something for herself. She always gives all her money away taking care of other people and I want her to have some money all for herself that she won't give away. I want to have a job so I can take care of my mom and grandma like they take care of me." – Brandee

About Girls' Voices:
Girls' Voices is a signature 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.
The Native American Advancement Foundation was formed in 2011 by members of the Tohono O'odham Tribe to deliver academic and health and wellness services throughout the Tohono O'odham Nation in Pima County, Arizona. Through our efforts, we are strengthening Native American communities by providing programs in the areas of education, health and wellness, and opening economic opportunities on tribal lands.
NAAF is a 501(c)(3) tax–exempt, nonprofit organization founded by members of the Tohono O'odham Nation, Gu Vo District, in an effort to help our community advance in the areas of education, arts and culture, economic development, health and wellness, and housing.
