I Support Her


Every year the Becoming Human first-year seminar holds an annual fundraiser/bake sale under the “I Support Her” banner in support of girls’ education globally.

As a result of our first-year students’ efforts and advocacy, and the generosity of the Adelphi community, we now support 10 girls in rural Cambodia, who receive an education through the Girls Be Ambitious program. This program was researched by a first-year student in 2012 as part of a class project about the human trafficking of young girls. This year we will be joined by the students of Dr. Clara Bauler’s first-year seminar, Multilingualism in Schools and Society. 

I Support Her

As part of our program, first-year students will be sharing the commitments they have chosen to study this semester (inspired by the memoirs they have read together in small groups) with interactive displays that will invite members of the Adelphi community to learn more about these commitments:

  • “I support her,” inspired by I am Malala, in support of girls’ right to an education
  • “I call you by the name you have chosen,” inspired by Becoming Nicole, in support of the transgender experience
  • “I want to understand your journey,” inspired by The Faraway Brothers, in support of the immigrant experience
  • “I hear you when you speak of your pain,” inspired by Willow Weep for Me, in support of those among us who struggle with depression

We hope you will join us for hot drinks, baked goods, interactive displays, raffles and more.

In order to raise the $1800 necessary each year, we will continue this fundraising effort in the spring during Adelphi’s annual Giving Day event.

The fall 2019 campaign is organized by the “Becoming Human” and “Multilingualism in Schools and Society” first-year seminars.

We would like to thank Alain Lanz, Lisa Ambrosio and Chartwells for providing hot drinks for this event.
