Niñas Arriba is a campaign to change the world, one girl at a time. Your donation directly funds a private college education for a young woman
in a gang-dominated suburb in El Salvador.
“Study after study has taught us that there is no tool for development more effective
than the education of girls and the empowerment of women.”
– Kofi Annan, Former United Nations Secretary-General
The campaign currently provides full scholarships for three students — Xiomara, Marta and Vanessa — to attend Don Bosco University, a private,
Catholic college in Soyapango, San Salvador. Each scholarship covers monthly tuition, academic fees and supplies, food and transportation for our girls.
Funds are sent directly to the university in our students’ names. Donors can make a tax-deductible contribution to this fund in one of three ways:

All donations are processed by our fiscal sponsor, Stone Room Concerts, a registered 501(c)(3) Public Charity. Stone Room Concerts charges no administrative fees for the Niñas Arriba fund, so 100% of all contributions go toward their intended purpose. All donors will receive a letter at the end of the year acknowledging their contribution, which is tax-deductible to the extent permitted by the IRS.
Note that until early 2015, funds were processed by VIDES+USA, the organization through which Gina and Jodi originally went to El Salvador.
