Thank YOU for sparking the Girl Effect!

Your continued support and partnership is changing the lives of girls and their families in the Kibera slum. 

Today, we need you to give $10 in support of a girl, and her family, in Kibera.

Your donation to Shining Hope for Communities through our Globalgiving page is a VOTE that will help us win the Girl Effect Challenge, and an additional $25k to support our work eradicating urban poverty through girls education and integrated community services. The Challenge runs until this Friday, November 30th at 11:59 EST.

A small gift will make a big difference!

We need to rally the highest # of supporters to donate through our GlobalGiving Girl Effect page by Friday-- Donate $10 today! 

Your contribution, at any amount, will bring us one step closer to winning the Challenge. Give today, and then share this opportunity with those close to you. You can even dedicate your gift to a friend, include a personal message, and we’ll send them a beautiful card! 

Let's make it possible for girls like Vanessa, a 2nd grade student at the Kibera School for Girls, achieve her dreams of a better life for herself and her family!
