The Importance of Family Planning

Reach Global’s work continues at an exciting pace. Since 2007, we’ve equipped more than 1,290,726 adolescent girls and women in community-based savings groups (called self-help groups) with critical knowledge and skills about home-based health practices, livelihoods and money management.

We know that when a woman changes the practices in her household the entire family benefits. Girls, the next generation of mothers and entrepreneurs, absorb these practices and integrate them into their future households. This is the powerful multiplier effect of investing in girls and women.

Our work this year in India will focus, in particular, on empowering girls and women to make sound choices about their reproductive health. I’ve attached an infographic that highlights why family planning saves the lives of mothers and infants and, therefore why it's such an important area for all of us to support women and girls.

Your support of this work is vital. So, I invite you to consider making a recurring donation at a level that you feel is personally meaningful. We’re excited to announce that an anonymous donor will match a recurring donation made today. Whether a single or recurring donation, your tax-deductible gift made online through GlobalGiving (see link below) or at Reach Global's website is quick, easy and safe.

Thank you again for your support!

Bringing Greater Certainty To Poor Girls and Their Families

Dear friends,

Poor girls and their families throughout the developing world live lives of constant uncertainty. From frequent fever from malaria, to diarrhea and dehydration from water-borne diseases, to a poor farming season that leaves family members, especially girls, undernourished.

However, as 17-year-old Neelam Kumari in Jharkhand, India reminded us during a visit, participating in Reach's health and finance "Learning Games" education equips girls and young women like her with life saving and life changing knowledge and skills: “I'm now washing my hands properly” and "able to save something for the future.” Such changes in home-based health and money management practices can change a life of uncertainty to one of greater stability and prosperity.

Please help us to continue supporting girls and their families by donating to Reach Global during the Global Giving Girl Effect Challenge, which ends November 15. Donating a tax-deductable gift online now is quick, easy and safe. Donate here.

Please also take moment to share this message with your friends and colleagues so we can build a larger circle of supporters like you!

Fall Update: Equipping Poor Girls with Life Skills

Greetings friends,

Since my last report to you, we’ve been busy identifying ways to strengthen our support to girls in India. We've also achieved an exciting milestone. Since launching our flagship program in India in January 2007, Reach has equipped more than 1,183,858 adolescent girls and women in community savings groups with life changing education.

Equipping women and girls with basic knowledge and skills about home-based health practices, livelihoods and family finance, enables them to take greater control over resources to protect their health, improve their families’ income, and manage money. When a woman changes the practices in her household the entire family benefits. Girls, the next generation of mothers and entrepreneurs, absorb these practices and integrate them into their future households. This is the powerful multiplier effect of investing in girls and women.

I know you share my belief that investing in adolescent girls and women is both the right thing to do and smart, and I invite you to support our work this Fall by making a donation that you feel is personally meaningful.

Thank you again!

Sean Kline
