Double Your Impact on Giving Tuesday!

True lasting change is achieved through learning - in school, under the compassionate gaze of a woman mentor. This year, in rural Niger, where only one in ten girls make it to the 3rd grade, 30 women mentored over 600 at-risk girls, who returned to school in numbers 20% greater than their unmentored peers with your help.  

You've generously given to this project because you're passionate about education for at-risk girls. On Giving Tuesday, December 2, Microsoft YouthSpark will be matching every donation to our Mentoring program on GlobalGiving.org. This is a wonderful opportunity to share your passion with a gift donation in honor of someone special. Or, just sharing the project on Giving Tuesday with friends and family will be a win for the women and girls working so hard against all odds.

In this season of sharing, give a piece of your heart -- give the gift of possibility for nomadic girls.

Thank you for your caring spirit, and the very best wishes for the holidays!

Founding Director 

"My name is Aichatou and I'm a Grade 3 student at the primary school of my village Iférouane, 250 kilometers north of Agadez. Our mentors have taught us embroidery in linen, crocheting, cooking and hygiene advice. Before I didn't know about any of these things. Now with the mentoring initiated by RAIN, I wash my hands before eating and leaving the toilet with water and soap. I have made a tablecloth and share my knowledge with all my sisters who do not have mentors. We are very much thankful to RAIN, which is really the friend of nomadic children."
