Caring for Girls is a non-profit organization that depends on community funds to facilitate workshops. Seeing domestic violence first hand has influenced my mission. My project will make a difference to females who left their home due to domestic violence. We will assist females with toiletries items to make a difference in a small way. I will put in time, and the money will help with the financial needs of the program.

During Earth Week, 2015, teachers in our three elementary schools will put out homemade little boxes and invite children to bring in their loose change to contribute to the drive. In the process, the children will learn about Haiti and the problems that exist there with poverty, sanitation, and soil degradation. Our theme for Earth Week is soil and how important it is to take care of it in order to grow our food and feed us and the people of the world.

Our group decided to print over 500 world citizenship passports with the consent of the government, both India and Africa and stamp them with the values of Gandhi and Mandela. We want to do this so that we can make the people of Johannesburg feel much more motivated and not so less fortunate. We are doing this to see them happy. Along with this, each students plans to make a speech, recite a poem or show their skills in a variety of areas to express their feelings about this project to the people of Johannesburg.

Our small group has offered our time every other Saturday morning, during the Spring/Summer/Autumn for a few hours of our to work on the farm. Weeding, harvesting, & anything else they may need help with. We did it last year & can't wait to get started again! The farm will be having an Earth Day Pot luck as well... & it'll be so exciting to use some of this years beautiful produce to make a meal to share. :-)

I would like to publish a vegetarian cookbook, compiling recipes from vegetarian cooks in Portland and beyond and sell the book to raise money to "adopt" apes through the Jane Goodall's "become a chimp guardian program." 13 girls have joined the effort so far. We've sent out requests for recipes to chefs around the world and the recipes have started pouring in. Next steps: start cooking! We need to take photos of each dish and begin illustrating the book. A fun way to use the cold, rainy winter weekends in Oregon!

I plan to first go to schools and talk to teachers and students about my hopes for this project and ask if they are interested in helping me. All of their talents could help, anything at all. My project will focus on smaller issues like recycling in schools and food waste, and bottle/can waste from parties is a huge issue overlooked among teenagers as well. I want to bring it to their attention and speak with the teachers. I also hope to discuss the possibilities of a "Gap Year" after high school while I have the chance and student's attention. I would like our community post offices to be thorough with recycling, different blanket/food drives for local SCPAS and promotion of community wide organic food. This project is most of all about making others aware of their impression on the world, and even more so, to guide them to care about their impression too.
