Since we reached (and far exceeded) the minimum fundraising goal of $4000 from 50 unique donors, we have secured a permanent spot on the GlobalGiving website. This is great news for us as it allows us to connect with many new donors and corporate sponsors who may otherwise not have heard about us. If a donor knows he or she wishes to support girls education, a quick search will turn up many possible organizations, of which Girls Education International is one. If a donor specifically wants to support girls in Pakistan or Liberia, it won't be long before they are looking at our page and then browsing our website! This is wonderful news for us as we move forward with our girls education programming.
Huge THANKS to everyone who supported us in this challenge by spreading the word and/or donating to our cause.
As we gain recognition and support, we will also grow. Girls Education International is planning to discuss our strategic plan at our upcoming October board meeting. We are considering expanding our impact into additional developing countries where girls continue to represent a very small percentage of the student body. Stay tuned for updates!
