Dear Project of the Month Club,
Now that it is officially summer, a hot one at that, we are happy to serve you this cool glass of gratitude from the organizations you support with your Project of the Month Club gifts.
In June, the 178 members of this club raised $5,828 for “Empowering Youth in Rural Uganda” run by Arlington Academy of Hope (AAH). AAH scores in the top 1% of schools nationwide, and has a 100% graduation rate. AAH’s project leader, Maureen Dugan, was thrilled to hear the news of your donations, “We are humbled and honored to be selected as the Project of the Month! A donation of $5800 or so would be a lifesaver - literally. It would cover a year's education for 16 children, several girls mentoring activities to keep girls in school, and medicine for malaria and respiratory infections at the clinic.” Maureen and all the children of Arlington Academy of Hope thank you for your generous gift.
This month, you will be contributing to “Ensure Excellent Education for 105 Kids in India” run by Teach for India. Your donations this month will ensure that 35 students in Hyderabad get access to a hands-on education full of leadership activities to broaden their horizons. In the long run, Teach for India hopes to create a powerful network of alumni who, influenced by their experiences in the classroom, will work towards effecting multi-sector solutions to India's most difficult problems.
As the mercury rises, we hope you find a way to beat the heat and feel good about making a difference in the lives of others at the same time. We look forward to passing along more good news from the field in August!
Warmly (both figuratively and literally),
Mari and the GlobalGiving Team
