Thanks for keeping the shelters up and running!

Thank you so much for your support of MADRE’s “Nanyori” Shelter Network, a network of six shelter schools for young Indigenous girls from impoverished communities who are escaping forced early marriage and female genital mutilation. With your continued support, we were recently able to send a contribution to our local partners at the Indigenous Information Network (IIN) to keep the shelter schools up and running! With this recent support, the Nanyori Shelter Network can:

  • Buy school uniforms for 3 new students
  • Provide school supplies and personal hygiene products to 3 students
  • Buy new books and supplies for 3 classrooms
  • Cover tuition fees for 3 girls to attend one year of school

Thank you so much for supporting this important work! With the sometimes prohibitive cost of supplies covered, these students can now focus on their education, a critical step in obtaining employment and tackling poverty. Thank you!
