YOU Are A Hero!


YOU are making a HUGE IMPACT for girls like Diphone!

Diphone is a normal 13-year-old girl beginning her last year of primary school. She is studying hard because one day she is going to be a nurse.

When she isn't learning in school or helping at home to care for her four siblings, she loves to go swimming and play with her friends.

Without YOU, this would not be Diphone's life.

Like so many other girls, she would be vulnerable to early marriage. She would have a much higher risk of sexual assault and exploitation. She would be much more likely to contract HIV/AIDS or have an unplanned pregnancy.

YOU have given Diphone and 300 girls like her a very precious gift.

Because of YOU, Diphone will be able to marry when she is ready. She will have children when she is ready. And she will be able to pursue her dreams!

Wednesday you have the chance to help more girls like Diphone!

Global Giving will be offering matches for donations over $10!

50% for one-time donations and

100% for recurring donations! 

we hope you will join us Wednesday at 12:00pm to make your gift!
