Dear Lead Us Today supporter,
Since your generous donation months ago, Lead Us Today has grown in tremendous ways. Today, we work with close to 1,000 high school students in 20 schools across three of Zimbabwe’s 10 provinces, providing them with one of the country’s most innovative and practical leadership and entrepreneurship training. Before sharing more specifics about our progress, we’d like to let you know of a unique opportunity to stretch your donation. Today, December 3, we are part of a matching campaign starting at noon, EST. Microsoft will match your donation to Lead Us Today, 100%! Please donate from as little as $10 on our active project page: http://goto.gg/12608.
Thank you for your generous, continued support!
An update: In the last four months since the beginning of our 2013/4 programs in August, Lead Us Today has been off to a really great start. I’d like to share with you some of the highlights from the last few months, which set a promising precedent for the rest of the year:

In the coming year, we are excited to share with you how your support is making an impact in our students’ lives.

A year ago, you joined the Lead Us Today family by donating and supporting our mission to inspire, empower and mobilize young Zimbabweans to make an impact in their communities. Through your generosity, we have successfully provided leadership and entrepreneurship training to hundreds of high school students. As I write, our students are all working hard on community development projects that they have designed together with their communities.
Thanks to your contributions, we raised $7,550 through GlobalGiving! Your contributions made up a significant 38% of our $20,000 budget for 2012/3 programs. Doubtless, your contribution made it very possible for us to deliver on our mission and help build the future of a whole country, Zimbabwe. Our students are deeply grateful to you for your incredible support.
We are pleased to report that we have accomplished all of our goals for the 2012/3 programs cycle. In the past year we:

Our 2012/3 programs cycle ends in July 2013. We are excited to see what students accomplish through their projects and look forward to sharing the end products of your financial support, in the coming months.
This report comes as we celebrate our 3-year anniversary, which is on May 29th. We have come a very long way since our founding and we are excited for what the future holds for us. We hope that you can continue to be part of us by supporting our work.
On June 1st, we launch our campaign to raise $25,000 for our 2013/4 programs cycle through Global Giving. I invite you to contribute today on GlobalGiving by simply following this link and donating from as little as $10: http://goto.gg/12608.
Once more, thank you for your continued support!

Over the last three months, Lead Us Today has laid a solid foundation for its programs for the next year, starting in September. Also, we have wrapped up operations for our 2011/2 programs cycle with great projects from the clubs. Here are some of the highlights:
