Thanks to all for helping us meet the Global Giving Challenge!

......."This is Hadiza Chaibou. She is an orphan. Since she’s been in the mentoring program she has become very content and courageous. She has progressed very well in all her activities and she truly loves her studies."

This is one of many stories that come in from our volunteer mentors about the girls in our Scholarship and Mentoring Program.

Thanks to your support during this Challenge, RAIN can now potentially reach more donors than ever before to create new stories of hope and success for girls in Niger.

We are excited to be a part of the GlobalGiving community. Look for some of the other programs RAIN has in Niger- school market gardens, HIV/AIDS education, women artisan cooperatives, and more!

Bess is in Niger now, meeting with parents and teachers in tweleve new communities to lay the foundation for more Scholarship and Mentoring programs. We will keep you updated on Bess' progress!

On behalf of all of us at RAIN, "Tanemeert" and Happy Holidays!
