Last Hurrah for Matching Funds for the Safer World Fund!

Thanks for your continued generosity towards helping us make the world a safer place! With your help, we are continuing to support education, vocational training, and health care in Pakistan and Afghanistan with some amazing partners.

Girls such as the one pictured in this report want to learn. Mothers need health care for their babies and themselves. Our fund works with terrific nonprofits to change the lives of people, especially girls and women, every day. For example, The Afghan Institute of Learning is supporting education for Afghan women and girls. SHINE Humanity is providing mother-child health for 40,000 Kashmiris. Ayni Education International is offering schooling for girls and boys in rural Afghanistan and is training local teachers to make it happen. 

Your donation to The Safer World Fund or any of its eight partners will be matched 50 cents on the dollar as long as the matching funds last. But less than $1500 remains, so take action today!
