Dear friends

Just a few days ago, on March 8th, the world celebrated the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day.  Most of us were not around 100 years ago - and those of us who were - do not remember very much of those days.  One thing is sure - we have come a very long way in terms of women's rights and fulfillment in 100 years.

We have come a long way not just in 100 years, but also in the last 20 years – which a good number of us can remember.  And to bring it closer home - not just in 20 years, but in the last couple years - since this project was added to GlobalGiving - and since you joined us in supporting girls in Africa.

In order to ensure that your funds invested into the education of these girls are not wasted, we follow up regularly with their academic and overall progress.  They are required to maintain good grades and maintain academic progress - in order to receive on-going support. They provide their academic report cards to us on a regular basis.  This has helped motivate them to work hard at school - to ensure they can maintain the scholarship.  The benefit to this is that good grades and progress in school directly helps their individual growth and development.

Linked below is a copy of Thomasia's academic report card.   Thanks to your support, as you can see, Thomasia is doing well in school and maintaining good grades - and you can see proof of it here. 

Here is a thank you video message from Thomasia - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e75IGMYbJj8 (recorded last year) and a recent thank you message from one pf thr parents - on behalf of other parents - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5N-uqPy1AM.  Your support is definitely making life less difficult for a good number of people!

We would like to encourage you to consider supporting this project monthly.  By doing this, together with your support, we can make education attainable for a whole lot more.  Thanks for your on-going support!
