Matching Funds Remain for The Safer World Fund!

Thanks to everyone who has supported The Safer World Fund since our matching campaign began on the 10th Anniversary of September 11th.

As of January 2, 2012, a bit more than $14,000 remains in matching funds for The Safer World Fund! New donations of any size up to $2000 will be matched at 50 percent until those matching funds are gone. Now is a great time to support vocational training for women in Pakistan, expand and supply a school for Afghan girls, or invest in math education or reproductive health for women and girls in Afghanistan, to give a few examples. If it’s too difficult to choose just one project in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region, your donation to The Safer World Fund will assist 7 different projects in that part of the world.

Because of its innovative, high-impact effects, The Safer World Fund was previously selected as the GlobalGiving Project of the Month. We work with terrific nonprofits to be sure that your dollars will be well spent. Nonprofits such as the Marshall Direct Fund, Ayni Education International, and the Afghan Institute of Learning work directly with local people to direct funds to the most effective uses. As the United States reduces its presence in the region, it’s even more important now to offer education, skills, and healthcare to the people of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Healthy people who can make informed decisions have the best shot at making their lives and their governments better. 

To help us make a bigger impact, share our cause on Facebook or Twitter to pass the word to your friends!
