Since my last report to you, we’ve been busy identifying ways to strengthen our support to girls in India. We've also achieved an exciting milestone. Since launching our flagship program in India in January 2007, Reach has equipped more than 1,183,858 adolescent girls and women in community savings groups with life changing education.
Equipping women and girls with basic knowledge and skills about home-based health practices, livelihoods and family finance, enables them to take greater control over resources to protect their health, improve their families’ income, and manage money. When a woman changes the practices in her household the entire family benefits. Girls, the next generation of mothers and entrepreneurs, absorb these practices and integrate them into their future households. This is the powerful multiplier effect of investing in girls and women.
I know you share my belief that investing in adolescent girls and women is both the right thing to do and smart, and I invite you to support our work this Fall by making a donation that you feel is personally meaningful.
Thank you again!
