Thank You to our Sponsors of Shanti Uganda--Pads4Girls 2012 Program to Empower Girls!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

250x167px-LL-4b6b1720_PPCVgirls.pngThis New Year, we extend a special thank you to our friends and sponsors at Boba, Earth Mama Angel Baby, and Moon Mysteries!

 

Their generous donations of over $1,000 will support 75 young women of the Pads4Girls Uganda 2012 campaign. This fundraising effort is intended to benefit 300 young women of Kasana Town, Uganda! The non-profit Shanti Uganda, in partnership with Lunapads and AFRIpads, has organized a direct outreach program for the health and economic empowerment of women and girls in this war-torn and impoverished region in central Uganda. The Pads4Girls Uganda 2012 campaign will address preventive care and other wellness issues confronting at-risk girls and young women living with HIV and AIDS.

 

Help us meet our fundraising goal of $4,500 to provide 300 teenage mothers and school-aged girls with health and wellness workshops. For just $15, you can provide a girl in need with life-changing personal hygiene products and lasting education and empowerment!

 

Here’s how you can make a difference in a young woman’s life today:

 

  • Donate now to help girls lead healthy, active, and independent lives!

 

  • Be a spokesperson! We’ve assembled a short collection of resources to help you spread the word to friends and family, including a Q&A with Shanti Uganda.

Thanks to Mothering community members, we have raised enough to send 71 girls to Shanti Uganda's health and wellness workshops. We're almost a third of the way there! A thousand thank-yous to everyone who has donated so far. Let's keep spreading the word and help secure a better future for these young women!

Dear friends,

 

Thank you for your support. We have now raised funds for 123 girls to attend the workshops and a growing wave of support is well underway.

Great news everyone! Thanks to your generous support, we have been able to collectively raise enough funds to support the possibility for up to 350 girls to participate in Shanti Uganda's At Risk Girls program. Girls will change the world!
