Bringing Greater Certainty To Poor Girls and Their Families

Dear friends,

Poor girls and their families throughout the developing world live lives of constant uncertainty. From frequent fever from malaria, to diarrhea and dehydration from water-borne diseases, to a poor farming season that leaves family members, especially girls, undernourished.

However, as 17-year-old Neelam Kumari in Jharkhand, India reminded us during a visit, participating in Reach's health and finance "Learning Games" education equips girls and young women like her with life saving and life changing knowledge and skills: “I'm now washing my hands properly” and "able to save something for the future.” Such changes in home-based health and money management practices can change a life of uncertainty to one of greater stability and prosperity.

Please help us to continue supporting girls and their families by donating to Reach Global during the Global Giving Girl Effect Challenge, which ends November 15. Donating a tax-deductable gift online now is quick, easy and safe. Donate here.

Please also take moment to share this message with your friends and colleagues so we can build a larger circle of supporters like you!
