I'm walking to support IMA's programs in Guatemala because they actually make a difference in the lives of young women who would otherwise not have the opportunity to thrive and grow.
IMA originated in Orange County, California back in 1983. Since then a large number of our volunteers, including our treasurer and executive director have moved up to Northern California and built up a local support network for IMA.
IMA is a global organization dedicated to improving the lives of young girls and women in Guatemala, Central America through education. IMA operates a non-profit school for girls where their health is maintained, their nutrition is supervised and they are provided a first-world education in tandem with tangible skills that enable them to become contributing members of society and the formal economy.
Ninety-four percent of all charitable donations are put towards providing education, food, medical assistance and day-to-day necessities for these young children. Our organizational and leadership staff are wholly comprised of volunteers so that funds go where they are needed: Directly to IMA's school.
On July 25th, IMA will be holding its Annual Walk-a-thon at Bolsa Chica State Beach from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Any and all are welcome to participate and support our work in Guatemala. This is our biggest annual fundraiser and it is critical to keeping our programs strong and our girls in school.
IMA is fully sponsor supported and relies on the efforts of its donors and volunteers to provide its exceptional programs in Guatemala. Join us today in helping change the lives of young women in need.
