Challenge Complete: We Did It!
So, what is next? We are now, more than ever, committed to completing this film and continuing this project. How amazing would it be to launch the documentary at home at the Naples International Film Festival in November and show the world that, “when sleeping women wake, mountains will move.”
If you have thought about donating, but forgot or thought it was too late, it is not. We will do this trip again and are already working with Peaks Foundation on that.
This first trip was a learning experience and the results were incredible. It will only get better from here on out. My hope is that this turns into an annual trip and deep down I truly believe that it will not only grow here locally, but nationally. It is a life changing experience and one I only wish existed when I was a teenage girl. That last day at the airport we went around the table and everyone said the moment during this experience that they felt empowered. I felt empowered at that moment because I realized all the hard work paid off and that I played a role in bettering the lives of these amazing 11 girls.
Help support future expeditions so more girls in our community can participate in this incredible, once in a lifetime journey.
