Mission for Scholarship:
- To support the educational and vocational success of Black and Latinx girls in an effort to empower and increase full equality of opportunity in our society.
- To create a method for highlighting the importance of emotional wellness in the achievements of Black and Latinx girls for many significant contributions to our communities.
Historically, Counting Your Flower’s agenda was to impact young Black and Latinx girls through a two part series that attempts to improve their self-image and esteem; while learning to develop practical emotional wellness tools and skills.
What are you supporting?
Last year with our in-person vendor event we raised over $1500 and this year our goal is to double that effort and help provide more scholarships.
