Reach Global’s work continues at an exciting pace. Since 2007, we’ve equipped more than 1,290,726 adolescent girls and women in community-based savings groups (called self-help groups) with critical knowledge and skills about home-based health practices, livelihoods and money management.
We know that when a woman changes the practices in her household the entire family benefits. Girls, the next generation of mothers and entrepreneurs, absorb these practices and integrate them into their future households. This is the powerful multiplier effect of investing in girls and women.
Our work this year in India will focus, in particular, on empowering girls and women to make sound choices about their reproductive health. I’ve attached an infographic that highlights why family planning saves the lives of mothers and infants and, therefore why it's such an important area for all of us to support women and girls.
Your support of this work is vital. So, I invite you to consider making a recurring donation at a level that you feel is personally meaningful. We’re excited to announce that an anonymous donor will match a recurring donation made today. Whether a single or recurring donation, your tax-deductible gift made online through GlobalGiving (see link below) or at Reach Global's website is quick, easy and safe.
Thank you again for your support!
