Empower 300 Women Entrepreneurs in Africa

The Village Net would like to thank all of our supporters who helped us to exceed our goal in GlobalGiving's April Open Challenge and earn a permanent place on GlobalGiving's website!! Without you we would not have been able to meet our goal, and every donation - big and small - counted! 

We are thrilled to announce that we exceeded the goal of raising $4,000 from 50 unique donors. The final total was $4,200 from 55 donors! Through these generous donations, 10 women in each of our 3 villages were able to either receive new $50 loans or have their existing loan level increased by $50. This allowed the women to increase their profits by expanding their businesses and adding new products. 

With the drought in East Africa continuing to devastate food and water supply, your continued support of our program will allow even more women to sustain their family's ability to survive and thrive. 

Thank you again for your support, you are all integral parts of the Village Net!
