Remember Niger Coalition announced today that they have graduated from the GlobalGiving Accelerator program, gaining entry into the GlobalGiving marketplace and becoming a recognized partner of GlobalGiving. As part of the Accelerator, Remember Niger Coalition successfully raised $8,442 from 79 unique individual donors to support their project, “Send 40 Girls in Niger to Secondary School.“
“We’re thrilled to have Remember Niger Coalition as part of our community. Remember Niger Coalition has met our rigorous vetting standards for trust and community support, and we’re committed to providing tools, training, and support as they learn, grow and become more effective,” said Alix Guerrier, CEO of GlobalGiving. “GlobalGiving donors value the opportunity to support nonprofits like Remember Niger Coalition, knowing that they’ll get regular updates about how their donations are put to work.”
“This project will provide 40 girls in Niger, ages 11-22, with a scholarship to attend secondary school and receive a high quality education. These students have aspirations to continue their education but do not have the funds needed to pay for school. Only 9% of girls in Niger continue past 6th grade. Our scholarships provide tuition, supplies, transportation and other critical supports to keep girls in school. Remember Niger schools provide a caring environment where girls can succeed.”, said Kara Vanderkamp, project leader at Remember Niger Coalition. “Visit our project, ‘Send 40 Girls in Niger to Secondary School‘ to learn how even $15 can make a difference. We’re $15,558 away from our overall goal of $24,000.”
