WHO WE SUPPORT
In February of 2020, ten Dirty Girls embarked on the trip of a lifetime, a Service Adventure to Guatemala. The Dirty Girls went to support the Organization for the Development of Indigenous Maya (ODIM). We hiked the highlands, kayaked on Lake Atitlan, climbed Pacaya, an active volcano, and participated in multiple service projects through the quality programs offered by ODIM.
Two thirds of the Guatemalan population live on less than $2 per day. In the rural communities where ODIM works, 8 out of 10 children are malnourished.
Through the Healthy Mommy & Me initiative, ODIM provides mothers and babies from rural communities with medical checks, health education, family planning talks, vitamins and supplements, to give the children a healthy start in life from conception to their second birthday. Join us in supporting this excellent agency.
This is our on going GROUP fundraising page shared by all the Dirty Girls participating in future service trips.
FRIENDS OF THE KAW
Dirty Girl Adventures is a member of Friends of the Kaw and takes pride in being able to support their mission. The Mighty KAW is OUR River Home!
Friends of the Kaw (FOK) serves the Kansas River, known locally as the Kaw. The Kansas River is the largest prairie-based river system in the world. The river originates at the junction of the Smoky Hill and Republican Rivers and runs 173 miles to meet the Missouri River at Kaw Point in Kansas City, Kansas. The Kansas River is also a drinking water source for over 800,000 Kansans.
For almost thirty years, our water-focused friends group has been the only grassroots conservation group dedicated to protecting the Kansas River.
KANSAS TRAIL COUNCIL
Dirty Girl Adventures is a member of the Kansas Trails Council and supports the work of the Trails Council across the state through that membership. DGA is a “trail watcher” on the Perry Lake Trail. We work as part of the team that works to maintain the Perry Lake Trail.
In 1984, the KTC officially became a non-profit 501c3 corporation dedicated to promoting the development and enjoyment of Kansas trails.
The KTC’s primary purposes are to:
- develop and maintain multi-use, natural surface, public trails
- provide resources to trail developers and trail stewards
- provide information about all types of trails
- teach trail building methods
- educate trail stewards and trail users.
