I have met thousands of girls. I have been to hundreds of towns. I have had countless experiences, but some of the most striking ones out of each of these categories come from my travels with Mighty Fingers. Each location gives me both knowledge and incentive to create change. My hope is that I can carry these feelings from country-to-country, girl-to-girl. I am excited for our upcoming trip to Haiti where we will be working with a number of programs and projects to create art. I have letters from interested and interesting young women in Canada and California to bring to the young women in Haiti. From Haiti, communication will continue both through written letters and the Internet. For the girls who want to say something to a larger audience, I will post interviews and letters from the girls in Haiti on the blog and Facebook. Haiti will be an amazing trip and I am excited to keep up the communication.

Communication is art that we encourage. During each stop, the girls we meet form new relationships and want the opportunity to maintain them and make new ones. They want to be heard by a larger audience and they are eager to listen. The Mighty Girl’s Blog is a forum for girls who have Internet access from all parts of the world to log on and say what they want to say. For those who do not have regular access to Internet, but still desire to connect with girls outside their community, we help match them as pen pals through written letters. The Mighty Girl’s Blog is an open yet monitored forum for girls to connect and share with an interesting and interested group of people.
