Dear supports, future supporters, future partners, friends and family;
It is with the greatest pleasure to inform you that Nofy i Androy (NiA) will participate in the 2021 #GivingTuesday crowdfunding activity. GlobalGiving is "the largest global crowdfunding community connecting nonprofits, donors, and companies in nearly every country." We are fundraising to uphold our mission to empower women with the tools to fight child-marriage, gender, premature pregnancies and education inequality through extra-curricular education and life skills programming at NiA. Although the November 30th is #GivingTuesday we aim to raise $20,000 by the end of this year. Our #GivingTuesday campaign is titled:
A small team of volunteers manages Nofy i Androy (NiA) however with an annual budget of $20,000 for 2022, NiA has proven that a little goes a long way. With such little operating budget we will be supporting 300 students education. NiA also receives support from random acts of kindness from supporters through birthday fundraiser donations and a handful of monthly donors. All of these sources of funding is what holds NiA together and without them, NiA would not have had the capacity to help 300 students go to school—some of whom are about to graduate college.
As we celebrate this giving season with Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we urge you to challenge yourself in realizing how privileged you are to be able to bring food at your Thanksgiving dinner table; (2) to be able to plan your Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping. Many of the women we help are at Nofy i Androy because their parents do not have enough money to send their daughters to high school. Nofy i Androy parents don’t have $200 to send their children to college--some wake up and go to and from school without eating.
Would you be willing to donate anything you can to ensure all women get their rights to education and sexual and reproductive health education? I hope you join us in this global movement by donating on #GivingTuesday. I cannot stress how enough how important it is to make your donation as soon as you wake up on November 30th or as soon as the clock strikes 12 AM Easter Standard Time. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have.
We are thankful to have such an amazing community and network that helps maintain Nofy i Androy every year. A little goes a long way and our project proves so. To learn more about our work in Madagascar, please visit our website.
Thank you for your time and generosity and I look forward to creating positive change with you!
