The Power of the Girl Effect!

We are posting a special report just to say thank you to everyone who participated in the Girl Effect Challenge on GlobalGiving this past month! We received contributions from 100 different donors and raised nearly $3,000 for our Girls' Empowerment Project! We can't begin to thank you enough for your continued support, and for encouraging your network to get involved in Heshima Kenya. Our Heshima girls in Nairobi are thrilled to have your support, and we hope that you will remain involved in our work with adolescent refugee girls.
