Dondolo Gives - Community Partners of Dallas
This Holiday season we're excited to announce the opening of our official non-profit organization, Dondolo Gives! With Dondolo Gives, we are now able to make a difference here in the U.S. Naturally, we decided to start locally in our home town of Dallas! We chose the Community Partners of Dallas as our first stop - we simply fell in love with their incredible mission.
CPD helps ensure the safety, restore dignity, and inspire hope for the abused and neglected children served by Dallas County Child Protective Services. There are several ways this organization impacts children but specifically, the Rainbow Room stole our hearts. It is an emergency resource center for children in the care of CPS providing critically-needed items such as new toys and clothes. We were able to donate over 15 boxes of brand new/unused clothing to this amazing resource.
Please join us and help support such an amazing organization!! For more info on the CPD - http://www.cpdtx.org/
Mom Empowerment Program
We are very proud of the work we have done and the relationships we have established on our Give Back trips in Colombia. But after really getting to know some of the mothers and because Dondolos main mission is to Empower Motherhood, we felt we needed to do more. So we have established the pilot of our Mom Empowerment program based in Cartagena.
We selected 5 women who have shown ambition and desire to create a better life for themselves and their families. Our program teaches them life lessons alongside tangible skills that can earn them a living wage, growing their self esteem and bettering their families future. Our Dondolo dolls are assembled by the women in our program and each doll features the story of the women who worked on it, sharing her hopes and dreams.
Our hope and dream is to be able to expand this program in the near future to impact even more women and their families in Colombia and beyond.
