OUR CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN ON CROWDRISE (#OPERATIONGIRL) brought in over $5000, allowing us to bring at least two representatives of girls’ organizations abroad to New York in the spring for networking, learning and lobbying for girls’ rights. Thank you to everyone who helped!


Now you can become a member of our organization and help support our ongoing cultural work in the New York area. We also need everyone to pitch in for our long term project to secure a permanent home away from home in New York for Finns and all friends of Finland – a place where the values we cherish – women’s empowerment, peace, equality, human rights, education, and sustainable development – are nurtured! This project is for you, me, our children and the world.
