Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

We hope you had a healthy and safe month of May. We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of you and the 585 other club members that came together to give $25,095 last month to Infinite Family and its project, Mentoring African Teens to School and Life Success, that is helping Black South African teens develop self-reliance and resourcefulness in as they prepare for their lives as young adults and beyond.

This June, your Project of the Month Club donation will support our nonprofit partner Soccer Without Borders' and its project Playing (Soccer) for Change in Nicaragua

Soccer Without Borders' mission is to use soccer as a vehicle for positive change and provide underserved youth a toolkit to overcome obstacles to growth, inclusion, and personal success. The Playing (Soccer) for Change in Nicaragua project gives girls living in Granada, Nicaragua the social, educational, and economic support they need to overcome obstacles to success and achieve their personal goals. Through the activities, girls earn participation points that are exchanged for school supplies and uniforms as well as school scholarships.

Senior Manager of International Programs Jenn Bell expresses her thanks to you and other Project of the Month Club members for supporting their mission:

“We are honored and thrilled to be selected for the Project of the Month Club and join this outstanding group of organizations and change-makers! Thank you to all of the Project of the Month Club members for supporting the work to build inclusive communities through soccer. With your support, we will continue to advocate for gender equity in Nicaragua, both on and off the pitch.

Jenn went on to share plans for how your generosity will power their efforts this year:

“The news of our selection comes at a critical time for our project in Nicaragua. Since Nicaragua's political crisis escalated in 2018, in combination with the impact of COVID-19, our project has not been able to host several annual events that typically fund our year-round work. The support from the Project of the Month Club will fill that gap and go directly towards our year-round programs which offer daily soccer, educational, and community-building programs to more than 450 girls in Granada and an additional 1,200 youth through events, camps, and leagues across Nicaragua. With these funds our team of mentor-coaches will be able to continue to cultivate safe spaces for women and girls, ensuring that each member of the SWB community feels connected and cared for during these challenging times.”

Thank you again for your continued generosity. I look forward to sharing July’s Project of the Month with you soon.

Stay safe and well,

Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

We hope you managed to stay well throughout the month of April. As these complicated times continue, we want to express our gratitude to you and the 583 other club members that came together to give $22,625 last month to Pachamama Raymi and its project, Donate trees to help impoverished families in Peru. Your generosity is instrumental in helping nonprofits navigate the waters of this turbulent time.

For the month of May, your Project of the Month Club donation will support our nonprofit partner Infinite Family and its project, Mentoring African Teens to School and Life Success.

Infinite Family’s mission is to help develop self-reliance and resourcefulness in students as they prepare for their lives as young adults and beyond. The Mentoring African Teens to School and Life Successproject uses mentorship and relationship-building to motivate black South African teens to create their own opportunities through good choices and hard work, even amidst township poverty, violence, and discrimination.

Founder, President, and CEO of Infinite Family, Amy Conrad Stokes, shares her first reaction at being selected for Project of the Month Club:

“I truly do not know what to say - except that you brought me to tears of joy with this email.She went on to add, “To receive this unexpected generosity, especially at this time when all of you have deep, personal concerns for yourselves and your own communities, lifts our entire organization in spirit, energy, and creativity when we need it most. This will truly give us a new level of flexibility to serve our teens who will be living under very different circumstances in their townships throughout this year.

Amy then went on to share about the impact your gift will have throughout the year:

“Your gift now will allow us to complete a new programming system, one which we have been wanting to pilot since 2018, that will significantly increase the number of students who have access to Infinite Family’s resources to develop their talents in education, career preparation, technology literacy, communication, and life skills. Thanks to you, students across Johannesburg’s and Cape Town’s townships will be among first in their families to obtain advanced studies and a decent job.”

Thank you again for your steadfast support. I can’t wait to share where your generosity is headed in June!

Warm wishes,

Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

We hope you had a safe and healthy month of March. In the midst of the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, we are so grateful that you and 581 other club members still chose to donate $22,490 to Trunks & Leaves and its project, Investing in Communities to Conserve Elephants, which is working to foster evidence-based conservation of wild Asian elephants and their habitats in Sri Lanka and beyond. In the coming months, your kindness and generosity towards community-led nonprofits like this one will become even more critical, as nonprofits will be forced to adapt and operate on even tighter budgets during the ongoing pandemic.

This month, your Project of the Month Club donation will support our nonprofit partner Pachamama Raymi and its project, Donate trees to help impoverished families in Peru. Pachamama Raymi’s mission is to eradicate poverty in rural communities and end the cycle of environmental degradation through sustainable practices. The Donate trees to help impoverished families in Peru project will help lift more than 1,000 families in rural Peru out of extreme poverty through peer learning and healthy competition. The aim is to accelerate the recovery of degraded soils and vegetation while helping the villages and the families living in them to manage their natural resources in a sustainable way.

Nonprofit Leader María F. Varela expresses her gratitude to you and other Project of the Month Club members and shares how your gift will aid Pachamama Raymi’s work in the future:

“We are very excited and happy to be selected...With your contributions, we can buy pine seeds, carry out an internship on reforestation, implement bio-gardens, trout farms, and help entire communities regain sustainable livelihoods.“ 

Learn more about Pachamama Raymi’s work in some of its latest project reports.

Thank you very much for supporting local solutions to problems around the globe. I look forward to sharing May’s Project of the Month with you.

Warm wishes,

Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

We hope you had a great month of February! We are so grateful that you and 581 other club members raised $22,490 for Urban Refugees and its project, Changing the Way the World Supports Refugees, which is working to improve the lives of displaced people living in the Global South.

This month, your Project of the Month Club donation will support our nonprofit partner Trunks & Leaves and its project, Investing in Communities to Conserve Elephants.

Trunks & Leaves works to foster evidence-based conservation of wild Asian elephants and their habitats through research, education, policy, and advocacyin Sri Lanka and beyond. The organization engages wildlife managers, conservation practitioners, educators, and local communities in raising awareness and imagining solutions for elephant conservation.

Founder and President Shermin de Silva expresses her thanks to you and other Project of the Month Club members for supporting their cause:

“We are so pleased and excited to be chosen for the Project of the Month Club by GlobalGiving! Trunks & Leaves is a tiny nonprofit with an elephantine missionprotecting the wild Asian elephants and the landscapes they depend on. International wildlife conservation is a crowded field that is notoriously underfunded. We are the sole research-based organization dedicated to this iconic endangered species, and so grateful for this generous show of support for our unique mission.”

Shermin shares how your generosity will power Trunks & Leaves’s mission in 2020:

“The heart and soul of this work are our dedicated and hard-working team on the ground. Our local field staff and assistants are engaged in the daily monitoring of elephants, maintaining our camera traps and data, and most importantly, communicating with farmers who are working with us… These funds will support two full-time staff salaries for all of 2020, as well as stipends for up to three community-based assistants. Compassionate conservation requires addressing the needs of people as well as wildlife, and this gift brings us closer to achieving our vision of a world in which both thrive together. “

You can learn more about Trunks & Leaves’s incredible work in its latest project report.

Thank you again for your ongoing support of the Project of the Month Club. We can’t wait to share where your generosity is headed in the month of April.

Warm wishes,

Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

We hope January was a great start to 2020! We had a wonderful time preparing ways to continue to elevate our nonprofit partners throughout the year. On top of that, you and 595 other club members raised $23,067 for the project, NGO & Indigenous Women Sustaining Impact in Mexico, and its organization, PSYDEH A.C, which is working “to empower indigenous women (and men) to lead the bottom-up, sustainable development of their own self-reliant communities in Mexico.”

This month, your Project of the Month Club donation will support our nonprofit partner Urban Refugees and its project, Changing the Way the World Supports Refugees

Urban Refugees works to improve the lives of displaced people living in the Global South. Project Leader Adiel Suarez-Murias expresses her gratitude to you and the other Project of the Month Club members for supporting their mission:

“On behalf of all of us at Urban Refugees, please accept our deepest gratitude for your generous support of our work. As you may know, Urban Refugees is a small team tackling a daunting challenge, which makes gifts like yours all the more meaningful: they truly make our work possible. As our team leans into planning for 2020 and beyond, this gift in particular was an extraordinary—and welcome—surprise. Thank you for your generosity and belief in our work.”

Project Leader Adiel is excited to share how your gift will supplement Urban Refugees’ work over the next year:

“Our approach to building sustainable solutions to the refugee crisis is to focus on cities, where most refugees live—beyond the reach of traditional aid. In response to the lapse of need, refugees themselves build grassroots organizations, providing critical services to their communities. The Urban Refugees Incubation Program partners directly with these organizations to help them become self-sustaining.  

A central tenet of sustainability is fundraising—as refugee-led organizations typically face numerous financial challenges. Grants are a centerpiece of our incubation model—and the funds from your generous gift will fully fund two of these grants, for two refugee-led organizations.

We believe solutions to the global refugee crisis are possible—and we work with refugees every day to build them. Thank you again for believing in our work, and for helping to make it possible. It means the world to us.”

You can learn more about Urban Refugees in its latest project report.

Thank you very much for generously supporting community-led solutions to problems around the world. I look forward to sharing March’s Project of the Month with you.

Warm wishes,
