Jaylen Sanchez, 7, of Pittsburg, California, is the Yours Humanly Children Have the Power to Empower Award’s first recipient. She will be recognized at our 2017 Gift of Schooling Gala, to be held Friday, March 31, at the Blackhawk Automotive Museum in Danville, California, and emceed by CBS Channel 5 anchor Juliette Goodrich.

Sanchez is receiving the Children Have the Power to Empower Award for setting up a free lemonade stand in her front yard and donating all the money she raised through voluntary contributions-which totaled $1,400-to children in need. She donated money toward uniforms and backpacks for a local shelter; school supplies and backpacks for needy students at her school; scholarships for students who are not able to pay for catechism at her local church; and the purchase of food for the homeless.


We are thrilled to announce the launch of a first of its kind award that recognizes children across America for their outstanding acts of goodness!

The Children Have the Power to Empower℠ Award showcases children and their outstanding acts of goodness in a meaningful way, and gives them a platform to connect, share their stories, and see what others are doing to make a difference.

We are pleased to announce that Assemblywoman Catharine Baker, 16th District, will be a guest speaker at our 2017 Gift of Schooling Gala.

A hallmark of Assemblywoman Baker’s work is her focus on education – one of her four legislative pillars. As the daughter of a schoolteacher, she is passionate about education and believes, as we do, that education is a basic human right. She partners with colleagues across party lines to see that all children are afforded opportunities to receive quality education in safe and nurturing environments.

We’re thrilled that Assemblywoman Baker will be our special guest at the 2017 Gift of Schooling Gala!

Today we join hands with girls around the world to celebrate International Day of the Girl Child. At Yours Humanly, gender equality is close to our heart, and we strongly believe that girls around the world deserve an equal chance toward a brighter future through access to education. That’s why we have granted K-12 scholarships to girls in Cambodia, India and Nepal.

We congratulate all girls who have shaped their futures through education, and we recognize those who are just embarking on their educational journey.
