Dear Project of the Month Club,

I hope you had a great month of May—ours was pretty wild! Last month we, kicked off our very first Paws + Claws Campaign to showcase the (bio)diversity of our partners! The campaign featured 272 projects dedicated to protecting animals who raised more than $57,000 while competing to earn matching funds and bonus prizes.

On top of all that, you and the other 537 Project of the Month Club members raised $19,336 in support of Vaga Lume Association, a GlobalGiving partner working in the Brazilian Amazon, and theirProvide Quality Education to 15000 Amazon Children project, which is working to promote access to books and literacy in 99 rural communities in the Amazon. Way to go!

This month, your Project of the Month Club donation will support Lanta Animal Welfare's Help Suffering Animals Get Medical Treatment project in Thailand. They rescue and provide medical assistance to injured or sick animals in their community. In addition to providing an immediate response to injured animals, Lanta Animal Welfare also creates educational programming for children that teaches kids to love and care for animals.

Project leader Perley-Ann wanted to pass along this message to you and the rest of the Project of the Month Club supporters:

The news of being picked as Project of the Month gave everyone here at Lanta Animal Welfare such pride and honor to be part of this amazing animal rescue charity.  And then to realize that such a generous donation will come to us left us speechless, overwhelmed and astounded. The support GlobalGiving has blessed us with gives us all so much motivation and courage to work even harder to continue to grow our medical reach, here in southern Thailand.  We struggle every day, some days for too many hours, to help the desperate and suffering rescue animals that come into our care. And now with the over-the-top generosity of your Club, we will be able to save even more lives. Yes, we are tearing up. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for believing in us, and our commitment, to relieve the pain and suffering of the animals here in southern Thailand.

You can read all about their recent work in celebration of April’s prevention of cruelty to animals month in their latest project report. And if you want to see the ongoing impact of your donation this month, you can subscribe to their updates by visiting their GlobalGiving project page.

Thanks again for your ongoing support of the Project of the Month Club. Your donations have traveled from Mexico to Kenya to Brazil and now to Thailand so far this year, and we’re excited to share where your donation is headed next month.

Warm wishes,
Alix Guerrier, GlobalGiving CEO

Dear Project of the Month Club,

I hope you had a great month of April—ours was particularly busy. We celebrated the power of the crowd with our Little By Little Campaign, where small donations made some big change! We are also very excited to share that we launched our very first Climate Fund Campaign this month because we believe in funding climate solutions led by the people most affected by our climate crisis. These organizations are competing for one of six year-long spots our new Climate Action Fund

On top of all that, you and the other 593 Project of the Month Club members raised $24,251—a new record—in support of Conservation Volunteers Australia, a GlobalGiving partner working in Victoria, Australia, and their Help Protect Endangered Bandicootsproject, which is working to protect the grasslands habitat of 400 endangered bandicoots. Way to go!

This month, your Project of the Month Club donation will support Vaga Lume Association's  Provide Quality Education to 15000 Amazon Children project in Brazil. The Brazilian Amazon covers 61% of the country’s territory and is home to 24 million people, yet is home to only 8.2% of the country’s public libraries. Vaga Lume promotes access to books and literacy in 99 rural communities in the Amazon by creating community libraries and training volunteers as reading mediators. By carefully selecting collections of books and encouraging adults to read to children, Vaga Lume is making reading both educational and fun for children in the Amazon!

Project leader Lia Jamra wanted to pass along this message to you and the rest of the Project of the Month Club supporters:

 

“Thank you for selecting us as your Project of the Month! By contributing to our cause you’re enabling Vaga Lume to keep providing quality education through literature to 15,000 children in the Brazilian Amazon. It’s very encouraging to see how much our project inspires the world and the belief that investing in children is the best way to create transformative change in the society. Through literacy, children can expand their perspectives and opportunities to achieve their full potentials and become protagonists of their lives.”

“This financial resource is very important to us because besides making access new quality books possible for children in remote communities of the Brazilian Amazon, it will allow the strengthening of libraries in the communities we already have established partnership with. We have already trained more than 4,500 read-aloud mediators and we will be able to spread even more “fireflies” (what we call our reading mediators) in the region.”

 

Their latest literary adventure took them from Sao Paulo to the heart of the Amazon on a recrei, a type of boat common to the region—you can read all about it in their latest project report. And if you want to see the ongoing impact of your donation this month, you can subscribe to their updates by visiting their GlobalGiving project page.

Thanks again for your ongoing support of the Project of the Month Club. Your donations have traveled from Mexico to Kenya to Australia and now to Brazil so far this year, and we’re excited to share where your donation is headed next month.

Dear Project of the Month Club,

I hope you had a great month of March—ours was particularly exciting! We held our second annual Girl Fund Campaign, in which 210 projects working to empower women and girls around the world competed for one of six year-long spots in the GlobalGiving Girl Fund. We also had the pleasure of welcoming more than 80 new nonprofit partners to the GlobalGiving community through our March Accelerator, a virtual training program and crowdfunding campaign that helps nonprofits take their fundraising to the next level.

On top of all that, you and the other 553 Project of the Month Club members raised $24,194—a new record—in support of SERUDS, a GlobalGiving partner based in Andhra Pradesh, India, and their Help Women By Providing Tailoring Training project, which teaches more than 200 women marketable skills like sewing and embroidery to help them provide for their families. Way to go!

This month, your Project of the Month Club donation will support Conservation Volunteers Australia's  Help Protect Endangered Bandicoots project in Victoria, Australia. Once a common sight throughout the state, the Eastern Barred Bandicoot is now one of Victoria's most endangered species and considered extinct in the wild. The main driver of the bandicoots' decline is an overwhelming loss of its natural grassland habitat. In response, Conservation Volunteers Australia is partnering with other local environmental groups to secure 300 hectares of protected grasslands as habitat for 400 endangered bandicoots—which would double the current population.

Project leader Catherine McLeod wanted to pass along this message to you and the rest of the Project of the Month Club supporters:

“Thank you for selecting Conservation Volunteers Australia as your Project of the Month, it will enable us to achieve many goals that otherwise would have had to be put on hold till until we could raise funds for them to become a reality. We look forward to sharing the progress of our Help Protect Endangered Bandicoots program with everyone at GlobalGiving and especially all the great donors that help to make a real difference.”

You can follow along with their progress protecting bandicoots by reading their latest project reports—you'll see the ongoing impact of your donation this month, and as an added bonus, you'll get to see lots more photos of adorable bandicoots.

Thanks again for your ongoing support. Your donations have traveled from Mexico to Kenya to India and now to Australia so far this year, and we can't wait to tell you where your generosity is heading in May.

 

Warm wishes,

Dear Project of the Month Club,

We hope the first few months of 2019 have been joyful for you! Last month, 548 of you gave $21,103 to Rahul Kotak Foundation’s Give Hope to Kisumu's Underprivileged Children project, holistically supporting children in Kenya through education, nutrition, and hygiene programs. 

I’m excited to introduce March’s Project of the Month: SERUDS! A long-time GlobalGiving partner in Andhra Pradesh, India, SERUDS supports marginalized women, children, and elderly people across the country. This month, you’re supporting their Help Women By Providing Tailoring Training project, which teaches more than 200 women sewing and embroidery skills so they can provide for their families.

Mallikarjuna, president of SERUDS, is so grateful for your support this month.

“Thank you very much for recognizing our charitable work for the empowerment of women and girls and glad to hear the good news that our project has been selected as GlobalGiving’s Project of the Month. On behalf of SERUDS, we are very much thankful and grateful for your wonderful support for the deprived. Without your generous support, it is very difficult for us to serve the destitute and needy. Thanks to our GlobalGiving!!! Thanks to our Club Members!!!!”

He also knows how much of a difference your generosity is making for the people they serve.

“Incredible and fabulous support by the GlobalGiving community to our nonprofit for charitable work carrying out for women and girls. A sum of this magnitude will really help our charity project to create sustainable livelihood opportunities and makes a difference in the lives of many rural families. This is a wonderful opportunity as part of  GlobalGiving’s Project of the Month Club.”

 Thank you so much for your steadfast support so people everywhere—from Kisumu, Kenya to rural India—can have access to the resources they need to thrive.

Warm wishes,

Dear Project of the Month Club,

Greetings from snowy Washington, D.C.! We hope you had a joyful holiday season and your new year is off to a prosperous start. Last month, 550 of you gave $21,302 to Atzin Mexico’s Literacy for Adults: Reading the World  project, which supports literacy education for adult women living in rural Mexico. Atzin is excited to use your support to increase their team’s capacity to better serve the community.

For February’s Project of the Month, we’ve selected Rahul Kotak Foundation’s Give Hope to Kisumu's Underprivileged Children project! Mansi from RKF has been a welcoming, engaging member of the GlobalGiving community, using her skills to mentor fellow nonprofit leaders around the world. At RKF, she supports education, feeding, and menstrual hygiene programs in the slums of Kisumu, Kenya.

Mansi was thrilled to hear that RKF had been selected as Project of the Month!

“The RKF Team was ecstatic upon finding out that we had been selected as the Project of the Month for February 2019. This comes as yet another feather in our cap after joining the GlobalGiving platform where we have had the opportunity to learn as well as experience tremendous growth.

“Our congruent goal of accelerating community-led change will further be strengthened by the magnanimity of the Project of the Month Club members who will help us get a step closer to our goal: a future in which every child in Kenya has all the necessary tools to succeed in their lives. Our programs are designed to work directly with the communities and help them take ownership of sustainable and long-term solutions. We use a multi-pronged approach to directly address the issue of education quality whilst tackling the various issues that prevent children from accessing this very education, such as no meals at school, little access to sanitary pads and learning material, especially books, among others.

“We are overjoyed at the possibilities that come with being selected as the Project of the Month. Thank You! Or as we would say in Kenya: ASANTE SANA!!”

Mansi knows your generosity will go a long way in Kisumu.

“This generous sum of money will help us empower some of the most vulnerable communities living in the slums and rural areas of Kisumu County by strengthening their local schools and providing quality education to the next generation of our country. It will provide a boost to the various programs we implement within these schools to achieve the following:

  • Serve over 250,000 meals of breakfast and lunch in the 2019 academic year to over 1,800 students in the slums and rural parts of Kisumu through RKF’s Meal Program
  • Complete our current work of converting a storage room into a library that will hold 10,000 books and 50 seating units that will cater to over 1,300 children in a fishermen community
  • Convert 2 shipping containers into libraries that will hold up to 5,000 books each
  • Provide various learning material like exercise books, pencils, educational toys etc. to all the students we work with
  • Keep all the existing WASH Programs in our schools by ensuring access to soap and running water throughout the year

I’m honored to partner with every single one of you to support Mansi, the Rahul Kotak Foundation, and all of the children that will benefit from your generosity. Thank you for being a part of our community.
