During the month of April, the African Development Initiative (ADI) participated in the April Open Challenge hosted by GlobalGiving, an online platform connecting donors with high impact non‐profit organizations. Participating organizations that succeeded in raising $4,000 from at least 50 unique donors secured themselves a permanent page on the Global Giving website. It is my great pleasure to share that, with your help, the African Development Initiative raised $7,808 and received a $300 bonus for having one of the top highest Facebook share numbers.
We are thrilled about our success in this April Global Giving Challenge, but could have never accomplished it without you. I would like to thank you on behalf of the whole ADI team for your contributions. More importantly than helping us win this challenge, your donations will help transform the lives of community members in Ekumdipe by enabling them to profit year round. Whether its the ability to purchase seeds and fencing materials, extend the current irrigation system with new pipes, or learn the newest dry‐season farming techniques from an expert local farmer, farmers will be able to increase their revenue and better provide for themselves and their families.
By supporting us, you have improved from multiple angles the lives of the individuals living in Ekumdipe. We hope that you will continue following Project RISE’s progress through our Global Giving webpage.
Again, thank you so much,
Vice President, Operations
