Help Pongo Ignite Healing through Poetry!

Help Pongo Ignite Healing through Poetry!



Many individuals that attend Ignite Pongo do so with the support of an institution/their employer; a hospital, a school, a non-profit, etc. Our scholarship fund will allow those without the financial support of an institution – committed community members, organizers, volunteers, and others – to attend Ignite Pongo and create therapeutic poetry programs based on our proven approach. The Ignite Pongo Scholarship fund will eliminate the financial barrier for attending our trainings, increase the number of community leaders who can enroll in Ignite Pongo, and expand the reach of our therapeutic approach.

Ultimately, your contribution will connect youth whose suffering has been exacerbated in the last two years, with the transformative and healing power of Pongo poetry writing.
