The key to leaving poverty
“The Daughters of Ayacucho Educational Fund has been a means of growth and development for young women with few economic resources. Ayacucho is considered one of the most impoverished cities in all of Peru.
The girls are devoted to their studies and to becoming professionals and obtaining a career that will allow them to leave a state of poverty. We continue gathering as a family, each session with anecdotes and consulting with eachother on issues, while also sharing jokes and laughs and birthdays. We thank the fund for this opportunity.”
“Thank you for everything you have done for me and giving me thetools necessary for my development, with your support every day I feel strengthened. I have in my heart immense gratitude and a lot of love, I hope tomake you proud with the trust you put in me.”
DAEF is a small grassroots organization that makes a huge, life-changing impact on the girls we support. We rely on the support of friends and family to continue our work. When you donate to DAEF, you can be guaranteed your money is being used to fund textbook purchases, tuition fees, or professional training to help the girls advance in their career.
Each act of giving truly helps the girls achieve their dreams, and at DAEF, even a modest donation can ignite monumental impact.
