“We’re thrilled to have Emprendedoras del Hogar as part of our community. Emprendedoras del Hogar has met our rigorous vetting standards for trust and community support, and we’re committed to providing tools, training, and support as they learn, grow and become more effective,” said Mari Kuraishi, President and Co-Founder of GlobalGiving. “GlobalGiving donors value the opportunity to support nonprofits like Emprendedoras del Hogar, knowing that they’ll get regular updates about how their donations are put to work.”

“Teenage girls who attend night high schools in Peru were once forced-labor children, most of them have been working as domestic workers forever. Never had the opportunity to choose. Through specialized workshops & a follow-up program we will empower them, help them find fair jobs when needed and connect them with universities and institutes to apply for career opportunities and scholarships. As a result, they will be professional women able to build the prosperous life they all deserve.”, said Claudia Esparza, project leader at Emprendedoras del Hogar. “Visit our project, ‘Empowering 500 at-risk Teenage Girls in Peru’ to learn how even $10 can make a difference: http://goto.gg/32097 We’re $44,941 away from our overall goal of $50,000.”
