Thank you for visiting this site. 3M is partnering with GlobalGiving to provide global relief and recovery from natural disasters. If you would like to make a personal donation, please consider our options below. Thank you.
GlobalGiving sends funds to both multinational organizations and local nonprofits to support immediate disaster response efforts. In the longer term, they work mostly with local non-governmental organizations to rebuild and develop the affected areas. Their experience has shown that local organizations that were there before the disaster continue to be there afterward to contribute to the community’s transition from recovery to reconstruction to development. All of the organizations are vetted by GlobalGiving to determine their legitimate, charitable status wherever they are registered.
Donations may be made in US Dollars or Great British Pounds.

In Maasai Kenya, 80% of girls continue to undergo female genital mutilation at puberty, after which they enter an arranged marriage and drop out of school. Information about their rights and health is unavailable or distorted, and these topics are considered taboo. Kakenya's Dream is educating and empowering girls to become their own advocates for their rights and health. At weekend and weeklong camps, girls learn life skills and receive vital health, rights, and sexual education.

Of the 20 million orphans in India, less than 5000 get adopted per year. We promote adoption by supporting adoptive parents through the adoption process. We identify children in orphanages without parental/guardian contact and move them into the adoption stream. Our research across 200 homes with 11500 children, shows more than 9% such children languish in an orphanage instead of being in the adoption stream. We conduct grassroots level workshops to build awareness about the adoption process.
