The Mariposa DR Foundation was founded in 2009 by a group of caring volunteers and children who were inspired by past works, and the urgent need for community-based solutions to end poverty. Our mission is inspired by the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. These goals include eradicating extreme poverty and hunger, achieving universal primary education, promoting gender equality and empowering women, reducing the child mortality rate, improving maternal health, combating HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases, ensuring environmental sustainability, and developing a global partnership for development. Achieving these goals is dependent upon the education and empowerment of women and young girls.
We are happy to share the exciting news that we have been selected as the April 2014 grant recipient for a Dining for Women grant. DFW funds programs like ours that help women and girls to achieve their potential, gain equality, and overcome economic limitations. They are creating a new paradigm by giving a “hand up not a handout,” arming hundreds of thousands of women and girls with the tools, knowledge and support to build better futures. We’re thrilled to be part of their giving circle — thank you Dining for Women! For more information please see the Dining for Women website.
