Sponsor education for women and children
Friends of VIN is a small but mighty organization. I have really enjoyed working with them and seeing them develop over time. Participating in the year-end fundraiser to sponsor education for disadvantaged girls in Nepal has been particularly enjoyable. Working with them has has inspired me, and I hope that I one day have an opportunity to volunteer in person in Nepal as well!
