Mirlen lives in a home with over 15 children, having lost many family members in the devastation of the 2010 earthquake. She knows what a valuable opportunity she has in getting her education, because she's one of few children in the home who are able to attend school.
Since beginning her education at Institut Edeline, she has learned to read and write, and she is generously using these skills in teaching the other children who have no access to education on their own.
Mirlen dreams of being a lawyer when she grows up, and the hard work she's putting into her early education now is helping her pave that path, but she has so far left to go, and she can't make it there alone.
With YOUR help, we can keep Mirlen in school for another year! 100% of your donation goes directly to Youth Without Borders as a grant to allow her to attend Institut Edeline. If our fundraising goal is met, Mirlen will be provided with school books, tuition, uniforms, school supplies and two meals per day. Transform Mirlen's life by donating today!
