The Safer World Fund Update, June 2011

Be sure to take advantage of Bonus Day, the Ides of June! The second Bonus Day of the year is coming up quickly. On June 15th, GlobalGiving.org will be matching all donations at 30% up to $1,000 per donor per project while funds last. There will be $75,000 available in matching funds. Plan to donate online to The Safer World Fund early in the day, as the matching funds may be gone well before sunset.

Next week I will meet with the leader of Ayni Education International to talk about her efforts to build and equip a new school for 3700 girls in Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan. She was recently in Mazar to check in with several of her other schools and their teachers, students, and communities. I always become reinvigorated about promoting The Safer World Fund when she talks about how important it is to offer education, skills and healthcare to people, and especially women and girls, in Afghanistan. Healthy people who can make informed decisions have the best shot at making their lives and their government better. That's why the Safer World Fund supports six projects that focus on schools, training facilities, and medical clinics in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Please help provide opportunities so that women and girls as well as men and boys can look forward to a brighter future.
