We are extremely grateful for the very wide & generous support we received for the education of village girls in northern Burkina Faso during America's Giving Challenge (the recent fundraising competition sponsored by The Case Foundation, GlobalGiving, & Parade Magazine). The generosity of our supporters, combined with the very generous Case Foundation award, will help send over 1000 girls through 13 years of school!
Your support will help us to respond to the rapid increase in villagers' requests for assistance in enrolling their daughters in school.
We are also proud of the parents' remarkable follow through in supporting their daughters beyond our first-year support with school materials and a lamb.
