    Clothing Children in Dignity

    On this episode, we spend time with Kimberly Giles, Co-Founder of Little Willows, which she founded with her sister. Little Willows provides coordinated clothing boxes for young children in underserved families throughout Northern Colorado.
    With the conviction that every child deserves to look and feel their best in every season, Little Willows exists to supply children and families in need with new or gently used clothing donated by generous community members. These boxes are not just practical gifts to meet practical needs. They are filled with hope - bestowing confidence and courage to those marked by scarcity or insecurity.

    Breaking the Cycle of Poverty and Exploitation

    Breaking the Cycle of Poverty and Exploitation

    On this episode, we spend time with Sarah Symons, Founder and Director of https://gml.cloud/v3.2/lt/3fbbb0700e1111eba61579dc97115794/bnBoaWxsaXBzQGNvbm5lY3Q0ZXhjZWxsZW5jZS5jb218fGh0dHBzOi8vaGVyZnV0dXJlY29hbGl0aW9uLm9yZy8 (Her Future Coalition), an international charity who’s mission is to break the cycle of poverty and exploitation by providing education and services to survivors and the most vulnerable girls. Sarah is an author, former composer of music for TV and film as well as a former art teacher in New York City.
    Her Future Coalition was founded by Sarah Symons and John Berger in 2005, a married couple who built the organization from the ground up using their personal savings and dedicated community of friends. As a women-led organization, Her Future Coalition provides compassion-led solutions which break the cycle of trauma and establish a new cycle of trust, well-being, choice and independence.
    Over the years, they have saved thousands of survivors in India, Nepal, Cambodia and Thailand…some of who joined their programs and are now managing the programs, working as trainers and mentors to newly rescued girls.

    Rewriting the Story of Education

    Students in need should never be afraid to ask for help and success in school should not be dependent on your income bracket.
