We are the 9th grade students at Los Angeles High School of the Arts (LAHSA). Our annual Change for Change campaign focuses on raising awareness and support for humanitarian causes. This year we have chosen to support Razia's Ray of Hope to empower young girls through education.
DID YOU KNOW...
49 million children could be saved from malnutrition and there would be a 49% decrease in child mortality if all women were allowed to complete high school.
Working women invest 90% of their income in their families, compared to 30-40% invested by men.
Our goal is to sponsor the education of two girls through this campaign.
Please help us reach our goal! Every dollar counts!
