Happy March from Generations For Peace! We have two exciting updates to share with you:
1) Generations For Peace Earns #29 Ranking in the 2019 Top 500 NGOs in the World
Generations For Peace is now ranked as #29 in the "Top 500 NGOs in the World" by Geneva-based NGO Advisor! We're also the #2 anti-violence and #3 peacebuilding organization in the world. This is important global recognition for the extraordinary efforts and achievements of our GFP volunteers around the world, striving for positive change in very difficult contexts. And it’s a huge credit to all the donors and partners who support us. You can read the full press release here.
2) Introducing the #HerStepsCount Challenge in honor of International Women's Day
In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8th, join Generations For Peace as we compete for one of four spots in GlobalGiving’s 2019 Girl Fund. By supporting our #HerStepsCount campaign between today and March 14th, you will be providing women and girls globally with resources to build peace in their local communities through GFP programs. Plus, funds we raise together during this period will be eligible for bonuses from GlobalGiving to enable us to do even more!
To spread the word, we call on you to participate in our #HerStepsCount challenge: take a video of yourself taking 5 steps then upload to your social media channels using the hashtag #HerStepsCount. Donate $10 to the campaign and then call on 5 friends to participate in the challenge, as well. When sharing, please consider doing so with people who are new to Generations For Peace, so we spread the message of women and girls in peacebuilding far and wide.
Thank you in advance for your contribution! Your donations will help us empower more women with the skills they need to become leaders in their local communities and pass on a more peaceful world to future generations. #PassItOn
