Thank you for supporting the Project of the Month Club on GlobalGiving! This report marks our first full year of the Project of the Month Club. We've raised over $20,290 for 12 amazing projects. Incredible! We are humbled by your generosity and are proud to have helped 12 amazing grassroots projects get much needed support this past year.
This past month your donation supported Immunization for Tribal Children and Young Mothers.
Through the generosity of 90 donors were able to raise $2,362 for Immunization for Tribal Children and Young Mothers run by Seva Mandir. This project organizes camps to provide immunization to pregnant women and children under two years old. Together, we provided enough funds to provide 12 rounds of immunizations for 6 deadly diseases to 85 children and mothers.
This month, we're pleased to announce that Help Afghan Boys Trade Guns For Books is the project of the month for June 2011.
Many Afghan boys want schooling but are too old or must work. Many young boys have been soldiers or lived as refugees, working long hours selling newspapers or candy in the streets in order to feed themselves and their families. Many are hopeless. Without direction for the future, they turn to violence, disrupting their families and communities.
This project funds Educational Learning Centers supported by the Afghan Learning Institute and Creating Hope International in Kabul and Herat. These community-based centers give boys the opportunity to study and earn grade certificates on a fast-track basis.
Your donation will help boys like Mohammad.
Mohammad, one of the English students in the learning centers, said, "One of my great wishes was to speak English. This wish of mine has been accomplished with the help of my hardworking teachers. I hope that Afghan Learning Institute continues to support teachers in different parts of Afghanistan in order to totally eliminate illiteracy, and that our country could compete with other countries across the world."
We have seen the impact that the Afghan Learning Institute has made and are proud to support their effort of educating the youth of Afghanistan and providing them with clear alternatives to violence.
Please help us spread the word

Thank you again for your support, Mari and the GlobalGiving Team
