Traditionally, there is just one expected life path for the girls Hands Offering Hope serves in Mexico. Social and familial norms press them to get married young, have babies, and stay at home. Like women all around the world, these incredible young people face expectations that severely limit their opportunities.
That's where you come in.
This International Women's Day, start a fundraiser to open doors for incredible girls in Mexico. Invite your friends and family to help young women choose their own path for the future—whether that’s higher education, a career, or a bold vision for something new. Give them access to year-round training in their communities—and scholarships so that they can stay in school, go to college, and pursue advanced degrees. Connect them to local and international mentors and leaders who will encourage them to dream for themselves. And help them build the confidence they need to challenge expectations.
Let's Choose to Challenge this International Women's Day. Join us!
Hands Offering Hope believes in the incredible potential of young people. Through flagship programs and partnerships with community leaders, we help students set bold goals, realize their talents, pursue their dreams, and build the skills they need to change their lives, communities, and the world around them.
What began as a small group of students in Chiquila, Mexico, has grown into a global community of students, graduates, young leaders, volunteers, teachers, and more. Together, we build comprehensive programs across the region that educate and equip hundreds of young people to become leaders in their homes, schools, neighborhoods, and beyond.
