Tracey Friley, a travel enthusiast from Oakland, California, is the founder of Passport Party Project, a community-based philanthropic global awareness program that provides underserved African-American girls with the resources they need to acquire their first passports.
Friley’s goal: To give away one passport a day for one year to deserving African-American girls – and, for the first time, young African-American boys will also become first-time passport holders. (Source: Black America Web, Michael H. Cottman)
“There is something that changes our lives just an inch every time we experience a first. Particularly as it relates to travel,” Friley wrote in her recent blog. “A first plane ride. The first time you realized how much of the world you haven’t seen. A first solo travel experience. The first time you tied something you learned in school to something you could actually see or touch in person. A first passport. And yes, that first passport stamp.”
