The Girl Effect
Many of Amaya's performances throughout the year are dedicated to supporting her special cause.
Enjoy her dance, support her girls!
Why girls? Adolescent girls are uniquely capable of raising the standard of living in the developing world.
A portion of all LEGENDS DVD sales will go to support The Girl Effect/Central Asia Institute (CAI).
Since 1996, CAI’s mission has been to promote education and literacy, especially for girls in remote regions of Pakistan and Afghanistan. As of the late 2008, CAI has established 78 schools, educating more than 14,000 girls.
Girls are the most likely agents of change, but they are often invisible in their societies and to our media. The Girl Effect is rooted in the work of the Nike Foundation, which has been joined by the NoVo Foundation in a shared mission to create opportunities for girls, and for the world.

A portion of "American Legends in Belly Dance" dvd will go towards this worthy non-profit organization. Amaya firmly believes in the empowerment of girls & young women to fulfill their full potential.
