Friends of the World Food Program, Inc.
Your gift will provide take-home food rations to girls in school for six months to help ease the economic burden on parents. This will help convince parents to keep their daughters in school and free them from their household chores. This gives girls, who otherwise may stay at home, the chance to learn. By promoting education for girls, the World Food Program (WFP) will improve a woman’s chances of finding well-paid work, raising a healthy family and even preventing the spread of diseases like HIV/AIDS. WFP is also helping these girls to achieve economic independence and have a voice within their communities. Education empowers girls and gives them the knowledge and tools they need to improve their lives. It will continue to have positive and long-lasting effects not only for them, but also for their families and their communities.

Your gift will enable Equality Now to produce and distribute Women's Action campaign alerts to approximately 150 members of the Women's Action Network, who voice their opposition to human rights violations against women and girls by contacting government authorities, circulating petitions and raising awareness in their communities. When governments encounter protest from around the world, they know they are being held accountable for these human rights abuses. The activists you help mobilize to stop trafficking will, for example, take action against “sex tour" companies operating from the United States; support efforts to help lower-caste women and girls trapped in prostitution in India, including amending the law, and to promote awareness about legislation to prosecute traffickers and protect trafficking victims. Your gift helps channel collective outrage into strategic action, and the public pressure generated continues to multiply, resulting in an even greater impact in the fight against sex trafficking.
Global Fund for Women
A gift of $5 will allow a group like the Union for the Emancipation of Indigenous Women to provide school supplies and school fees for 10 indigenous girls, daughters of the displaced survivors of the Rwandan Genocide, in the South-Kivu Province of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
