I am leading the Women Changing Our World Foundation (Twitter: @WCOWUSA), a women's advocacy organization and nonprofit founded in partnership with MetoWe and the Myna Mahila foundation, which has partnered with the Downtown Women's Center on LA's Skid Row, to support residents, young women, girls, and teenagers in impoverished or underserved parts of Los Angeles in support of UN Women's mission to ensure a fair and equitable environment and end gender parity. Our objectives are to empower young women and girls, targeting those part of indigenous and traditionally underserved communities, reduce stigmas concerning menstruation which prevent young girls from receiving an education while being culturally sensitive, and disseminate health and hygiene information and sanitary pads and products assistance for 5,000 girls and young women. The importance of uplifting the young girls who will grow into the female leaders we revere is only highlighted by the recent women's march and its crucial place in our communities.

Our project will be held on September 11th and we will ask every member of our school community to bring in one item. This participation will demonstrate the power each individual has in making a difference in alleviating a serious issue.

Our project will help the young men in our community have an outlet for their issues by having strong positive male figures to guide them constantly and showing them there are other ways to prosper.

Our project will bring all of the young ladies together in the community to help each other. We will do this by going to the schools and churches reaching them one by one.

We want to build an "outdoor classroom" that will use the land, sea, and sky of our Bronx campus to provide opportunities to learn and protect our environment, share with our neighbors and give our students opportunities to gain practical skills and have outside fun. We will build and grow a container garden producing flowers for our neighbors in the nursing home next door, vegetables for a soup kitchen on Fordham Road, pollinator plants to support bees and butterflies, and other plants that are native to this area, like berries, sassafras, and June berries. We want to restore the Indian kettle in the river and add an oyster restoration project to help filter the river naturally. We want to add a weather station to help forecast severe weather since our neighborhood and school were crushed by Hurricane Sandy. All of these things will help us to lead environmental stewardship efforts in our corner of the Bronx.

To obtain and organize the items to create the care packages, my Roots & Shoots club will hold a collection drive outside of our local department store for supplies. When customers go inside, club members will provide them with a list of recommended items that while they are shopping could pick up and donate to us on their way out. To create the packages, the club will hold an event at school to discuss the problem of homelessness including facts to rid of the stigma surrounding these people and instead find ways to support them during this difficult time even beyond care packages.

To complete this project my Roots & Shoots group will hold a week long Thanksgiving Food Drive collecting nonperishable goods from the community and a 2 week long fundraising competition between the different parts of my school to raise money for the turkeys. My club will also decorate boxes to decorate in order to put the 150 meals in to deliver to the families.

Our group was divided into groups: mix the materials; fill and weigh bags; seal the packages and pack boxes. We received training and worked for over 4 hours to make the goal. At the end of the three days there were more than 90,000 meals ready to be shipped!
