Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

In Sierra Leone, illiteracy and poverty have contributed to growing numbers of people being sent to prison, where they often face cramped and unsanitary conditions. In particular, women can be imprisoned for years with poor access to healthcare and limited contact with family. Our November Project of the Month, AdvocAid, provides vital education, counseling, and welfare support for these women and their families.

When Executive Director Zynab Binta Kamara learned that AdvocAid had been selected as the Project of the Month, they shared:

“Your donation will contribute greatly to addressing AdvocAid’s vision of a Sierra Leone where women and girls’ human rights are respected and protected...It will also enable us to continue driving a sustainable and impactful change in Sierra Leone. Women will be able to have alternatives especially regarding livelihoods; they will go through skills training and leave detention as part of a sustainable change.”

Thank you so much for your generosity.

With gratitude,

Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

Last year, COVID-19 forced Shoulder to Shoulder, Inc, to pause much of their work providing food for under-resourced families in Honduras—but they couldn’t be stopped for long! 

This month, we’re thrilled to introduce their newest initiative, which has been selected as our October Project of the Month: Hens Hatching Hope.

This multifaceted project helps women gain financial independence and provides vital nutrition for more than 300 kids who often don’t have enough to eat. How? Eggs! Every day, the Shoulder to Shoulder team works to support one woman in communities across Honduras by providing hens and helping her develop a thriving flock. Then, surplus eggs are given to other mothers in the community when they take their children to local health centers. 

Executive Director Laura Failla Manship shared this message when she learned Hens Hatching Hope had been selected as the Project of the Month: 

“There is nothing more satisfying than watching children grow and thrive. There is also nothing more satisfying than helping women find ways to support their families. Hens Hatching Hope is a Win-Win project! These funds will help us to expand from the current 300 recipients—our goal is to enroll 400 children in the project.”

Thank you so much for your compassion.

Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

For many of us, summer is coming to a close—but not for our September Project of the Month Mariposa Center for Girls!

From surfing and other outdoor sports to community-building in the sun, The Mariposa Center for Girls gives young women and girls who are living in extreme poverty in the Dominican Republic the chance to grow, play, and build a better life for themselves. Their center is a safe space to build community through sports, learn life and professional skills, and access free healthcare, libraries, and computers. These resources not only support healthy development but also help break the cycle of poverty.

Executive Director Patricia Suriel shared that this extra support would be vital as the impacts of COVID-19 continue to alter programming. 

“Due to the pandemic, being able to spread out and have more open-air spaces has become essential. These donations will assist us with maintaining those spaces and making sure that the Mariposa girls can learn, eat, and be active as safely as possible.”

Thank you so much for your compassion.

Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

Across Greece, more than 4,000 kids are living without their families. 

Many of these children have been forced to flee their homes due to violence, economic instability, or the impacts of the climate crisis. Far too often, their wellbeing is threatened by poor living conditions, trafficking, and legal barriers. 

Our August Project of the Month Support the unaccompanied refugee minors in Greece by Better Days Greece is providing critical aid to these children. Better Days works holistically, offering emergency healthcare, clothing, and food as well as supporting long-term healing through counseling and legal services.

When they learned that Better Days was selected as the August Project of the Month, Outreach and Communications Coordinator Daniel Larios Gomez shared:

“We couldn't be happier to receive this recognition and support, not only for the impact that this money will have towards supporting unaccompanied asylum-seeking children but also it gives us strength and determination to continue delivering dignifying aid for as long as it's needed.”

Thank you so much for your constant generosity.

All the best,

Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

In February 2021, our July Project of the Month, HERD (Hoedspruit Elephant Rehabilitation and Development), took in a young elephant calf who had been caught in an illegal poaching snare. They named her Fenya. 

Fenya was severely injured and malnourished after spending nearly two months trapped and alone. Sadly, despite the HERD team’s efforts, Fenya passed away in March. Thankfully, that’s not where the story ends. 

Across South Africa, elephants like Fenya are facing high levels of poaching, most often for food or ivory. HERD gives survivors like Fenya a second chance, offering veterinary services, rehabilitation, and, eventually, a new family in the local Jabulani herd. 

Team member Che Coetzee shared this message when they learned that HERD was selected as the July Project of the Month:

“Funds from the Project of the Month Club will assist us in a major way to both manage the impacts of the elephants on the land, continue buying and providing milk, and continue meeting the costs of running the first dedicated orphanage in South Africa. The needs of the elephants in our care are great, and with your help, we can continue doing great work! Thank you.”

Thank you so much for your compassion and commitment.

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.
