Project InReach

Our upcoming annual summer rooftop party  will be the last fundraiser for Project InReach. These past five years have been incredible; the feeling of accomplishment due to the impact made with and for the community of Puerto Mallarino, Cali, Colombia is more than words can describe. We could not have done it without YOU: our family, friends, and even strangers who attended and contributed to our events. 

From this point on, the work of Project InReach will be continued by our newly registered Cali (Colombia) satellite, which will be led by Juan Manuel Serrano, our former project coordinator. Juan Manuel has been instrumental to our efforts in Puerto Mallarino, organizing events and co-facilitating our workshops alongside Professor Carlos Moya. He has a special connection with the community, going above and beyond to support our function and ensuring their success. Our final fundraiser will cover the final costs of Juan Manuel’s training as a leadership instructor. Our goal is to provide him with ample support as he continues the work we began, under the new satellite, Project InReach Cali.

 A special thank you to our closest collaborators. Some of you were there from the start, joined in the middle or even at the very end, but your passion doesn’t go unnoticed. Our gratitude for your endless contributions will continue beyond this project.

Come celebrate with us all the work we have accomplished together at our final happy-hour fundraiser on Friday July 12 at the DL Lounge- 95 Delancey St.  NYC from 5PM on.  If you can't make it but wish to donate, please consider donating to our GoFundMe. 

The team consists of:

Mark Martinez, Founder
Helen Valencia, Yamilka Mena- Directors

Thank you for your support,

InReach Team
