Rock-Paper-Scissors Children's Fund
GlobalGiving is honored to partner with innovative and inspiring projects focused on improving the lives of women and girls. We are pleased to announce the GlobalGiving Girl Fund cohort for 2017. From the Vietnam countryside, to India and Afghanistan, over to Kenya and northern Nigeria, and across the Atlantic Ocean to the Dominican Republic the impact of your generosity spans the globe!
These six projects are supported by their local communities and committed to growing their impact and programmatic effectiveness. Whether their focus is on education, healthcare, empowerment through entrepreneurship, or leadership, each project is creating more opportunities for girls around the world than there have ever been before. Today, we are excited to share their work with you, and we are incredibly grateful for all the individual donors just like you that want to give girls every opportunity to grow up and succeed!
It is our pleasure to introduce you to the six projects that your donations are supporting this year. We can’t wait to see the impact that your donations make. Thank you for your kindness!
