You were amazing in 2016!

Last year, you - our GlobalGiving community - gave over $11,000 to help improve the quality of healthcare available to vulnerable people in Tanzania. That’s enough to support a midwife’s salary for a whole year, and provide 40 hours of clinical training, to equip the same midwife with the skills and confidence to perform high quality deliveries, and save lives.
Your donations didn't just have a direct impact on the women and newborns we serve in Tanzania. You also gave us access to nearly $3,000 in additional funding from GlobalGiving and their partners. You unlocked matching funds during GlobalGiving Bonus Days, and boosted our project ranking, attracting the support of GlobalGiving’s corporate partners and promoting our cause to other members of the GlobalGiving community. Every dollar you gave changed a life in Tanzania AND amplified our message, mobilizing your fellow change-makers to contribute to our programs.
This year, we’re committed to making it even easier for you to make the biggest impact possible.
We’re calling 2017 ‘The Year of the Bonus’. We’re participating in more GlobalGiving bonus campaigns than ever before, giving you more opportunities to unlock matching funds and multiply your generosity. We’re going to share even more stories of change and hope, not only to show you your donations in action, but also to help you share your impact with friends, family and colleagues.
Together, we have already taken huge steps toward transforming the face of healthcare in Tanzania. We can’t wait to see how much further we can go in 2017.
