            A photograph can lock a moment, thought and experience into a single image.  It can tell an entire story without whispering one word.

            Three of WomensTrust’s photos were chosen as finalists for GlobalGiving’s annual photo contest, and we now have the opportunity to win $1,000 and appear on GlobalGiving’s homepage.  We believe these images share the significant stories of the women and girls WomensTrust impacts on a daily basis.  We can describe our successes, reiterate our mission, and reinforce our personal passion for this movement, but nothing can convey quite so vividly and honestly the truth behind our work as the three photographs you see here.

            We appreciate your incredible support and advocacy and hope you will consider helping us to win this contest!  All votes must be cast by noon on Wednesday, August 17th.

To participate:

  1. Log into Facebook and search for GlobalGiving. 
  2. In order to vote, you must click “like” at the top of their fan page.
  3. Click on “Photos” on the lefthand side of the page.  An assortment of photo albums will appear; click on “2011 Photo Contest: Give Hope.” 
  4. The first three pictures in the second row are WomensTrust pictures.  These include a scholarship student raising her hand, a microfinance client baking bread, and a scholarship student reading a book.  Each photo is marked with the caption: “See the project: ‘Support Entrepreneurial Drive of Women in Ghana.’”  By ‘liking’ the photo, you have officially cast your vote to support WomensTrust. 
  5. Finally, spread the word, and ask your Facebook friends to participate as well!

            Thank you again for your continued commitment to our organization.  These pictures tell stories, and your votes will ensure they continue to be heard.
