Dear Project of the Month Club,

We’re pleased to share with you that last month, you and the 128 other Project of the Month Club members raised $3,414 for Snehalaya, Meaning The Home With Love, in Hindi,” a care home in India where disabled children, homeless women and the elderly all work and live together as a family. 

Dr. B.K. Sharma of  Gwailor Childrens Hospital Charity asked us to share this message with you:

"Thanks a lot to all the members of this recurrent donors GlobalGiving club. There are 83 children including 77 girls in the school at present. Your gifts will pay the salaries of special need teachers for an entire year. In addition to education in school, most of the children are provided with books, uniform, mid day meals, and vocational training."

It's also our pleasure to introduce March's project Prevent Youth Involvement In Drug Traffickingwhich offers 50 young people alternative activities out of school hours to prevent their involvement with gang culture in the low income communities (favelas) of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Thais Corral, the project leader, had this to say upon learning that this project had been chosen to benefit from your March 2012 donations:

"Thank you so much for this opportunity. The donations you will be giving will help to create 50 gardens in the roofs as well as in the walls [of the buildings] of the favela. It will help doing 12 communal gatherings in which we cook and eat healthy food. We want to create fun ways in which our 50 children are agents of education for healthy eating at the favela. We intend to do small videos with statements, plays in which healthy eating is promoted. We are envisioning it as a campaign in which several visual skills that children have learned can be part of." 

We hope that you are proud to know that you're helping these 50 children grow and eat healty food, helping them learn and become productive members of their community rather than falling into the gang and drug culture in their neighborhood.

Thank you again for your generosity. We assure you it is changing lives! 

Warm regards,
Mari and the GlobalGiving Team
