Fabiola Calix is a 15-year-old living in Matènwa, Haiti. Her mother is an embroiderer and her father is a mechanic. The oldest of three siblings, she enjoys playing the role of big sister in her family. Her favorite hobby is reading and she is grateful to have the opportunity to gain more knowledge at school. Fabiola loves the community of Matènwa, but struggles with the fact that some people have to cut down trees to make charcoal for a living. Her investment in the local community is obvious—when she grows up, she wants to stay in Matènwa as a nurse to make sure others can live healthier lives.

"In this society, without an education you are not valued. And so in the future, I want to help those who can't help themselves. My dream is to become a nurse, so I can heal the sick in my community, help fix the roads and be a good citizen." - Fabiola Calix

With your help, Fabiola can finish secondary school and move on to vocational school to become a nurse. Fabiola is the first generation of her family to attend secondary school on the Island of La Gonâve, Haiti. GreaterGood.org is supporting the build out of the Matènwa Community Learning Center (MCLC), the only secondary school on La Gonâve! Your donation goes directly to Friends of Matènwa, helping them give Fabiola and girls like her access to the education they deserve. 

Consider making a monthly gift. When you give just $32.36 monthly, you ensure Fabiola or another girl at Matenwa Community Learning Center School has a permanent scholarship until she graduates.

About Girls' Voices
Girls' Voices is a pilot program of GreaterGood.org intended to raise funds for girls' secondary education through media made by girls. Our goal is for girls around the world to connect to their voice, their dreams for their education, and use the power of digital media to create images, stories, and visual metaphors that can communicate their strength and potential to the world. The intention of this project is to empower girls to utilize videography and to raise funds, 100% of which will directly contribute to scholarship funds for girls facing financial barriers to completing secondary education.
