THANK YOU! We are thrilled to report that we exceeded our goal for the Back to School campaign! In total, we raised $5,900! Through your generosity, the matching gift challenge given by the Rotary Club of Montgomery Village was matched dollar for dollar! In fact, your gifts went above and beyond the $2,500 challenge! We now have the funding needed to fill the new classrooms with the desks, furniture and supplies. Without your support, this would not be possible. On behalf of the children and their families in Niger, we thank you for your gifts. We extend our sincere appreciation to the Rotary Club of Montgomery Village, Maryland, for their matching gift.
