Thank you for visiting solamaya.org. The intention is to provide information and support for the people and projects closely affiliated with my heart. When it comes to giving there are no limits to the lives that can be touched, even if it is one.
In 2007, I established a scholarship for girls through the Holy Cross Mission in Pirgacha, Bangladesh. The purpose is to support the education of Tribal Women, and put the spotlight on Pirgacha, and the People whose status currently reflects the plight of many ethnic minorities struggling to survive globally.
There are numerous deserving recipients of the tribal population that has an 85% literacy rate. It is important that the women have access to educational resources, being that they are responsible for their societies integral human development programs.
The scholarship recipient is chosen and awarded by Father Eugene Homrich, who has been living with the tribal people and helping to run Pirgacha Mission for over 52 years. All donations can be directly sent to:
