What is Soy Niña about?
Founded in January 2018, Soy Niña is a non-profit organization that seeks to empower girls living in psychosocial risk areas. We work on the prevention of early pregnancies and the prevention of gender-based violence. Our main program is Club Niña and involves more than 140 girls 6-14 years old in three communities (Rio Azul, Los Guido and Desamparados Centro, San Jose - Costa Rica).
Club Niña is based on a U.S. program that has been in existence for more than 30 years and has been proven not only to prevent early pregnancies, but also to help break cycles of poverty and empower girls to build a life project away from risky situations.
Through different themes that progressively advance (self-esteem, decision making, emotion management, among others). Soy Niña wants them to discover that they are valuable, intelligent and that they have a great future ahead of them.
What is done with these donations?
The Club Niña and the workshops for family members, work under three consecutive sessions according to the module; and a monthly session of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), healthy lifestyles, art and environment is interspersed.
All topics are developed in a playful and fun way in which the girls are the protagonists of the program.
During the COVID-19 crisis, the girls were accompanied through the delivery of magazines published by the organization. A total of six editions of the magazine "El Planeta Soy Niña" were delivered.
Weekly radio episodes on Radio Libertad 570 AM. A total of 19 episodes of the program "El Planeta de las Niñas". In addition, they offer a listening and crisis hotline and tutoring support.
We are very happy from Concepción Miranda to support Soy Niña CR with 5% of our sales.
