Ghanaian Woman and Child
You helped us reach our funding goal. What can we say? Thank you just doesn’t seem like it’s enough.
With your support, you helped us highlight the challenges and opportunities that women and men living in extreme poverty around the world face in their every day lives. These findings were captured in our report Less Than Two Dollars a Day: Creating Economic Opportunity for Women and Men Living in Extreme Poverty in Developing Countries. Through the report we amplified the voices of more than 200 grassroots men and women in Haiti and Ghana, 40 interviews with experts in the field and more.
We are excited that the report was just included as #33 in Women Moving Million’s Top 100 Gender Reports of 2014.
The best way we know to show our appreciation is to throw ourselves even more into our advocacy work for women and girls around the world. Here are a couple of examples of what Women Thrive has in store:
- We will host a summit in November 2014 to explore how corporations, governments, NGOs and more can better support marginalized women, and help them lead the way out of hunger and poverty.
- We will make sure women leaders from developing countries have a seat at the table with heads of corporations, NGOs and government agencies. One such leader is Lydia Sasu, Executive Director of Development Action Association (a women farmers cooperative), who is part of our Global Partnerships Network.
Your support has been instrumental in making sure that the ideas and solutions that women and men living in extreme poverty are heard. This critical work is still needed, which is why we have increased our fundraising goal to $80,000.
We hope that you will continue to support this project—particularly on a day when your investment can have even more impact. Please consider donating today to take advantage of GlobalGiving’s match program. Matching begins October 15th at 9 am EDT and lasts until funds ($75,000 available) run out or 11:59 pm EDT.
Thank you once again for your support!
