I have seen this nonprofit grow from an idea to a multi-sector partnership across borders. It is inspiring to watch the great work being done in the Sub Sahara, and the connections being made around the world through the relentless efforts of the CEO/founder. This group also has a strong board, with a small but invested volunteer base. I feel confident that this nonprofit pours all efforts and resources into their communities of interest. I firmly stand behind their vision to meet the needs of the community in the Sub Sahara through education, empowerment, and equity.

I have volunteered for Rose Academies for nearly a year now. Our goal is to help impoverished people in the Sub Sahara. We are working on multiple efforts ranging from drilling a well in a rural community to helping women learn vocational skills. I am proud to be part of such a great cause.

The mission of St. Mary di Rosa Academies (SMRA) is to improve educational programs for impoverished girls and deaf children in Sub Sahara Africa. Activities to support our mission include graphic design workshops for girls to reduce the gender gap in technology, a vocational center for women offering classes on enterprise development, sponsoring deaf children by funding their tuition at CERSOM School for the Deaf, and sustainable efforts to ensure potable water for communities. The SMRA founder, Susan Stasi, has limitless energy and passion for these efforts. Every dollar donated to SMRA goes toward SMRA activities.

Parents today seem to have an incredible number of decisions they have to make regarding the lives of their daughters (regarding education, activities, the use of technology, employment, etc. . . ). Thank you St. Mary di Rosa Academies for saying “yes” . May the girls draw strength from St. Mary . And may the Team and the girls continue on a journey not filled with complete understanding or clarity, but with a deep and abiding faith --- finding hope and strength and peace even when life isn’t going as planned --- by knowing where to find it --- in our God!

St. Mary di Rosa Academies is working towards a great cause by helping numerous people in the Sub Sahara. Not only are we helping the impoverished regions with basic necessities like Washable Sanitary Pads and Dignity kits but we are also helping educate them about basic sanitation, puberty, gender differences and vocational skills to be independent and make a living. Some of the rural areas don't have access to clean drinking water and we are raising funds to help drill a well and help provide clean water in these impoverished areas.
I am proud and honored to be a part of such a great organization.
