GAD Raffle 2007

On behalf of the Gender and Development (GAD) Committee of Peace Corps Ecuador, we would like to invite your support in our annual raffle, proceeds for which help further educational opportunities for Ecuadorian high school girls and support other GAD activities.

One of GAD's primary objectives is to provide three-year scholarships for young financially underprivileged, yet highly motivated Ecuadorian women so that they can finish their high school education. Working in partnership with Club Kiwanis Chuquiragua in Quito, Ecuador's scholarship program is one of only a handful worldwide.

The financial assistance that we provide for these young women is vitally needed: a mere 56% of Ecuadorian women receive their high school degree. The scholarship recipients reflect the rich ethnic diversity of the country, including representatives from Afro-Ecuadorian and indigenous communities.

This year's raffle, scheduled for July 17, 2007, will help to provide scholarships for around 80 young women, as well as funding for our annual leadership conference of scholarship girls and Camp ALMA (Activism and Leadership for Ambitious Women), a five-day leadership camp giving young women the opportunity to test their potential and gain valuable self-esteem as they take part in rigorous outdoor adventures.

Prizes for the raffle include one round-trip plane ticket good for travel between Ecuador and the continental United States, as well as other prizes such as gift certificates to restaurants and hotels. Each ticket costs only $1.50. If you buy 100 tickets, you will automatically sponsor a woman's education for a full year and become a member of the GAD 100-Club, receiving a photograph and information regarding the young woman whom you are sponsoring.

Donations are tax deductible!! There are several ways to donate:
1. We encourage you to donate on-line through the Friends of Ecuador website. Log on to www.friendsofecuador.org and click on Donate to make a donation to the GAD raffle.

2. Checks can be made to: Club Kiwanis Chuquiragua Please write GAD Rifa in the Memo of the check and mail to: Attn: GAD. Casilla 17-08-8624. Cuerpo de Paz/Ecuador. Quito, Ecuador. South America.
