Friends of Baraka - New Dawn Safe House Fundraiser

Hello!

Welcome to our Friends of Baraka fundraising page!  Friends of Baraka was founded by four Vancouver youth with the aim of working with the Baraka Non for Profit creating connections and fundraising for teen girls at the New Dawn Safe House in Maamba, Zambia!

New Dawn House is a safe haven and exists for the purpose of giving a safe and nurturing environment to 23 teenage girls who would otherwise not have the opportunity to attend school due to their life circumstances.  All of the girls living in the house come from poor rural backgrounds where there are no secondary schools. There is also a cultural tradition of marrying teenage girls off at a young age to attain a dowry. Gender based abuse and violence is common, so for most of the girls the Safe House is a way out of poverty and neglect and a chance to achieve their potential and pursue their dreams. 

Considering we are the same age as many of the girls living in New Dawn House, we were touched by their stories and wanted to fundraise to ensure that they not only survive but thrive.  With this in mind, our first fundraiser is to purchase two computers, one which will facilitate their learning but also give us an ability to communicate with each other and learn about our cultures.

We hope you can help us!  No donation is too small!

Thank you!

Amelie, Alexandra, Bianca & Gwyneth :)
