Updates and Future Plans

Dear Supporters,

Your generous support has already helped GlobeMed raise over $5,000 in funds for reusable sanitary kits to help schoolgirls at the Glory of Christ Primary School continue their education! Their periods no longer have to hinder their access to education and success.

We are currently in the works of looking into developing a tailoring center to ensure the long term sustainability and viability of the pad program. With this center, we hope to expand the pad program to other schools within the Rakai District and provide training to female staff at the schools. With these new steps, we hope to be able to reach out to more young girls and also provide economic opportunities and employment through tailoring training. In this way, not only can girls continue their educations, but they also have a way to be economically independent.

We will continue updating you on our progress with this tailoring center, as well as the pad project. Until then, please continue your generous support. The provision of resuable sanitary pads has the potential to change so many more girls' lives, and GlobeMed at GW and Set Her Free wholeheartedly thanks you for your incredible support of our project thus far. Your contributions make the provision of reusable sanitary pads possible, and have the power to impact the world.

Thank you,

Spring Goals

Dear Supporters,

Your generous support has already helped GlobeMed raise over $5,000 in funds for reusable sanitary kits to help schoolgirls at the Glory of Christ Primary School continue their education! Their periods no longer have to hinder their access to education and success.

Moving forward, our GlobeMed team hopes to expand this project as mentioned earlier on in the year by beginning the preliminary process of creating a tailoring center to make the pad project more sustainable and provide economic opportunities. A tailoring center is a great way to give the girls living in the slums of Uganda useful technical training and provide them with a source of employment. We are also aiming to expand the pad program to other schools within the Rakai District in Uganda, so that other girls are able to continue their education unhindered. 

Before the end of this spring, we will post another update letting you know about the progress of our pad project and the tailoring center. Until then, GlobeMed at GW wholeheartedly thanks you for your incredible support of our project. Your contributions make the provision of reusable sanitary pads possible, and have the power to change so many girls' futures for the better. 

Thank you,

The Staff at GlobeMed at GW

Today is a Global Giving Match Day!

 Dear Supporters,

I would first like to sincerely thank you for your support of GlobeMed and our partner Set Her Free! Your contributions have already made a huge impact on the lives of the girls at the Glory of Christ Primary School in Kampala, Uganda by providing them with 100 reusable sanitary pad kits that will develop their vocational skills and allow them to reach their full academic potential unhindered by their menstrual cycles.

Today, we invite you to join us in continuing to support our work to help young women become empowered by making a gift of any size. Any gift that you make today will be matched by 30% in a matching gift made by Global Giving! This is a great opportunity for us to make an even bigger impact in the lives of these girls.

We cannot do this work without your support! Gifts of any size make a huge difference in helping to provide necessities to these girls; in the past year alone, gifts of under $100 totaled to over $1000 in support, which is a true testament to the power of communal giving.

Again, please consider supporting us today on Global Giving’s match day! This important work has been made possible because of the gifts we receive from donors like you. We are so thankful for your past support, and ask that today you join us in making a gift to one of our campaigns so that these girls can continue receiving the vital services that they need.

Thank you again for all that you have done to help our cause.

With much gratitude,

Angela Chen
