Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

Did you know that malaria is still the leading cause of death in Uganda? Although this disease is both curable and preventable, high healthcare costs and a lack of education mean that many people across the country still become ill, particularly in rural communities. 

Our July Project of the Month, Kagumu Development Organization, is helping families stay safe by educating mothers on malaria prevention, as well as providing free mosquito nets and treatment. Their project Save 750 Pregnant Women from Malaria in Uganda focuses on the Kibuku district, a rural region where communities often struggle to access much-needed healthcare.

Thank you for your commitment to a better world! 

Warmly,

Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

Across Puerto Rico, high rents and mortgages, inadequate disaster recovery assistance, and housing discrimination places thousands of families at risk of losing their homes. With the climate crisis causing more devastating natural disasters each year, historically marginalized groups like women, Black communities, immigrants, and older people are at a higher risk for displacement than ever before.

Our June Project of the Month,Ayuda Legal Puerto Rico, is helping families keep their homes and fighting the displacement crisis by starting at the source. Their project Build Power: Community Paralegals in Puerto Rico annually offers 15 community members training in legal literacy, participatory research skills, advocacy, and community-based legal efforts, preparing them to support themselves and their communities in building environmental and housing equity. 

When founder and Director Ariadna Godreau Aubert learned that Ayuda Legal Puerto Rico had been selected as the June POMC, they shared that these funds will pay for an entire year of training. “Supporting this novel project is a stepping stone towards shifting narratives and practices that acknowledge communities' legal power and agency,” they said.

Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

This month, we’re kicking off summer beach trips by journeying to Curaçao, a remote Dutch Caribbean island known for its secluded beaches and expansive coral reefs rich with marine life. Each year, several endangered sea turtle species travel to this tropical haven to lay their eggs. Between June and September, up to 5,000 baby turtles will hatch—but in the face of dangerous predators, illegal poaching, and rising pollution, their survival is far from certain. 

This is where our May Project of the Month, Friends of Sea Turtle Conservation Curaçao, comes in. 

With programs ranging from public education to pollution reduction around nesting sites, this locally-led organization is working to ensure that the turtle mothers of Curaçao can nest safely for years to come—and that their hatchlings are able to make it to the surrounding ocean. By saving sea turtles from poaching and entanglement, as well as raising public support for conservation, Friends of Sea Turtle Conservation Curaçao is giving these endangered animals a chance to live long, healthy lives, and protecting overall marine biodiversity in the process.

Thank you for your continued generosity and compassion!

With gratitude,

Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

In Indonesia, less than 1% of children who have terminal illnesses are able to access palliative care. They and their families are often forced to endure the grief and pain of their last days without any assistance—particularly in rural, under-resourced communities.

Our April Project of the Month,Yayasan Rumah Rachel ('Rachel House'), is working to bring much-needed comfort to these kids and their families by providing in-home palliative care service for patients and their families as well as palliative care training for medical professionals across the country. Since it was established in 2006, Rachel House has cared for more than 800 children and provided training for nearly 9,000 medical professionals and community volunteers—all in service of a future where no child in Indonesia has to die in pain.

“We at Rachel House are beyond grateful to receive such an honor to be selected as GlobalGiving's Project of the Month for April 2022,” Chief Operating Officer Ella Cecilia shared. “For those who live in poverty, when even putting food on the table is already a daily challenge, receiving palliative care at home is a very essential assistance that they would never dare to imagine.”

Cecilia went on to share that your generosity will make it possible for Rachel House to care for four more patients for up to a year, including medical care at their homes, pyschosocial support, and help navigating hospital policies.

Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

In Kibera, an extremely poor suburb of Nairobi, Kenya, more than 1 million people—including children—live without access to basic resources like food, electricity, healthcare, and education. Kids who are able to go to school are often crammed into crowded, under-resourced classrooms where there are too few teachers to meet every child’s needs.

Our March Project of the Month, Turning Point Trust, is working to change this reality. 

At their schools, just 25 pupils share spacious classrooms so that everyone recieves individualized attention. Even better, their daily meal program ensures that children not only attend every day but also have the energy they need to succeed. 

Turning Point Trust’s Fundraising and Communications Manager Emily shared that funds from the Project of the Month Club will support nearly 200 students by covering school fees, teacher training, and more.

Thank you for your compassion and generosity!

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
