Mariposa at VCU Presents: Tools, Travel, and the Media: Finding Your Way to Changing the World

Mariposa is a new service organization at VCU that was founded by a group of students who volunteered with The God’s Child Project in Antigua, Guatemala. The God’s Child Project provides free education, health care, and shelter to children and families who live in poverty. The God’s Child Project has spread to several other countries around the world and offers great learning and service volunteering opportunities for college students.
The founder of the organization, Patrick Atkinson, will be at VCU to give a lecture on his vision and the process of setting up such an organization. The lecture is called Tools, Travel, and the Media: Finding Your Way to Changing the World and will be held November 19 in the Forum Room of the Student Commons at 1 pm. This would provide a great opportunity for anyone interested in combining study abroad opportunities with service volunteering opportunities in various fields – social, Spanish language, medical and dental. The organization has outreaches in Africa, Latin America and India. Hope to see everyone there!
