You may have heard of Black Friday and even Cyber Monday, but have you ever heard of Giving Tuesday? After Thanksgiving in the United States and those frantic shopping days, it’s nice to take a moment and give back to causes that are close to your heart.
We’re participating in this global giving day this year, focusing on making the dreams of students happen. But, we need your help.
Tawonga was once a student who had a dream. He saw how children who dropped out of school struggled, not only in life but also to return to school. Through the Students with Dreams programme, he created and implemented a project that engaged with local women’s groups to specifically target and support students who had dropped out of school to return to school. Tawonga’s project then grew to encompass students who were vulnerable to leaving school, bringing the women’s groups in to support them as well.
His dream, and the support of the out-of-school students, would not have ben realised without your support.
Plus, our friends at GlobalGiving are matching proportions of all donations made this #GivingTuesday, making your donation go even further.
So, mark your calendar for November 27 and bookmark our GlobalGiving project page to Make Dreams Happen in Malawi.
