$2K Matched for Mentoring on GlobalGiving

Wow, we're bowled over by your response to our matching Bonus Day for mentoring on GlobalGiving.org on May 13th - over $2,000 was raised to support at-risk nomadic schoolgirls with local women mentors at their sides....an ebullient THANK YOU to all who answered the call! 

You can still support mentoring in a unique way - by empowering the women who volunteer with Savings & Loans Groups! RAIN has less than two months to reach our goal of $1,000 on our GlobalGiving.org project page. It's easy to make an impact:

  • $200 creates a seed fund for a group of 20 or more nomadic women to build their futures with.
  • Just $40 can start a new small enterprise.
  • Just $20 can purchase food and medicine for the family of a mentor.

"I am so happy that we have the saved and earned money from our group. It has really helped with all of our needs, including naming ceremonies and weddings, medicine, sauce ingredients and even costs for our children who are in school.” - Mentor Hawa Almoustapha
