Good news: The Girl Effect Challenge

Dear GlobalGiving supporters,

 We are so excited to share our good news with you!  Global Giving recently encouraged us to apply to the Girl Effect Challenge.   

 Our proposal to empower 150 young domestic workers to take charge of their own health using a “girls teaching girls” approach was one of the projects from around the world that was selected to compete in the Challenge. 

 If La Casa de Panchita is one of the 6 nonprofits that receives the most gifts between October 15th and November 15th on GlobalGiving, we will be featured on the Girl Effect fundraising page for an entire year and will be able to fund our project! 

 Please help us spread the word   Here’s the link http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/girls-take-charge-of-their-health-peru/

 Girl Effect is a powerful international movement to raise awareness about the potential of adolescent girls to end poverty for themselves and the world (the same potential we’ve been demonstrating in Peru for more than 20 years!)  Just think how many other people could learn about and support our work.  Last we checked, Girl Effect had more than 250,000 followers on Facebook!

 We appreciate each and every one of your contributions, your “likes” and your tweets. Thank you.

 Blanca Figueroa

Project Leader.

 PS Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and at @casadepanchita!
