Dear friends,

I hope all of you saw on global giving site that we have been one of the 12 groups that qualify for girl effect challenge. I cannot thank you enough for making this possible.  I also take this opportunity to request all of you who live on America to think of this project when you are preparing to file for tax returns. All donations given through global giving are 100% tax exempted in USA as The GlobalGiving Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization (EIN: 30-010-8263).

Since I reported last time there has been some important events in the girl’s project. Apart from regular classes in English and computers, 27 girls trained on making video essays. They made three video essays of 3 to 7 minutes based on their daily experiences of gender discrimination. These can be accessed from YouTube on the following links.  ; ; . These videos have been screened at two colleges with discussions on gender issues.
