The nomadic girls in our Scholarship and Mentoring programs not only learn health education and receive life guidance and support, they also learn practical skills to earn income. Tuareg girls learn the artistic traditions in leather work, making camel saddle tassels and decorative purses.

Now through July 30, when you donate $25 or more, you'll receive a hand-crafted leather item created and signed by one of the girls in our Mentoring program in Niger - a very personal "thank you" straight from them to you!

And if you donate on Wednesday, June 13th, GlobalGiving will match your donation by 40%, nearly doubling your support of the girls and mentors in our programs!

Thank you for all you do for those in rural Niger.
