THANK YOU! For being our Hope in Tough Times

By Keturah Shammah | Executive Director

With the COVID-19 Pandemic impacting everyday life, we want to thank you for your continued support and wish you healthy and safety.

It has been a tough time for Girls Education Mission International adapting to these unprecedented circumstances. For us, the lockdown and social distance as preventive measures against the Corona Virus are one of the greatest threats posed by COVID-19 on our organization. Our capacity for us to work remotely was limited. This in number of ways limits our operations and affecting our work. All these has detrimental effects and are threats to the impact and sustainability of Girls Education Mission International.

Of more concern is that the situation will be even worse after the Corona Virus due to the unpredictable Nigerian context marked by economic instability. While there is a lot of uncertainty, we know that we need to adapt fast our changing reality. Now, more than ever, our girls need us.

Right now, we are doing everything possible to sustain our operations and provide services to our community.

The Good News!

We are glad to inform you that GlobalGiving has awarded Girls Education Mission International a COVID-19 Micro Grant of $1,000. This is a great achievement to us all. In order to ensure not to roll back the gain we’ve recorded so far, we are designing a long term sustainability plan. We plan to launch a sanitary pad production that would enable us continue to serve our community as best as we can.

 The sanitary pad production when launched, we hope that it would help us:

  1. Provide greater access to free, affordable and hygienic period products to girls.
  2. Generate income to support girl’s education and other resources to lift girls and their communities of poverty.

We know that times are tough, but Girls Education Mission International has an important role to play by continuing operations to best serve our girls. We have created a COVID-19 Response Appeal fundraiser that you can Donate Right now if you are able https://www.globalgiving.org/fundraisers/girlsemergencyfund/. Note that For five days straight (Sept. 14-18), all donations made to our project up to $50 will be matched at 50%. 

If you are unable to donate at this time, there are many other ways you can support us. You can advocate for us by sharing our mission with a family member or friend, set up a fundraiser on our behalf. Even a quick mention on your social media would mean much to us.

In times like this we are reminded of how interconnected we all are. Thank you for being part of our community. Without you, none of it is possible. Stay safe and well.
