Empower Guatemalan Women Through Education and Microloans

FUNDED March 2 2018 – Thank You!

Empower a woman to improve her life and her family’s well-being, and to benefit her entire community.

When a woman has access to capital and the education to use it well, she becomes the instrument of her own change – and more. Women so empowered improve living conditions not only for themselves, but also for their families and their communities. By offering women a means to self-employment and self-sufficiency, we inspire them to become leaders, and the results are nothing short of amazing.

Rural, indigenous Guatemalan women often lack the educational and economic opportunities to create their own solutions to poverty. Less than 70% of all girls in Guatemala attend primary school, and less than 50% attend secondary school. 37% of Guatemalan women are unable to read or write.

Capital from a microloan and education in relevant life skills can change a woman’s life forever. Loan recipients use these funds to start a new business or advance current businesses: they may purchase additional supplies, remodel storefronts, or hire staff. They also receive educational training sessions that are relevant to their daily lives; for example, training to develop a business or to manage money effectively. They learn to have confidence in themselves and their abilities, to make decisions, share ideas, and speak up for themselves, becoming community leaders and agents of powerful social change.

Make a difference for a woman in Guatemala! Your click today helps fund a microloan and training for a Guatemalan woman in need, and will touch the lives of many women in an amazing cycle of giving. Because the recipient of the microloan repays the amount she was given, the returned money can become a brand-new microloan for yet another woman in need, creating a “pay it forward” effect that touches many lives in a truly international bridge of friendship.

Protect 200 Acres of Rainforest Habitat to Preserve Biodiversity: Completed March 21, 2018

44,400 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

Home to the world’s largest tropical rainforest on Earth, the Amazon is legendary for its great biodiversity that contains millions of species, many still undescribed. However, during the past few decades, nearly 20% of its lush forest has been lost, removing a staggering amount of habitat needed by the area’s unique wildlife to survive. Rainforest Trust and a local partner in Peru are working with indigenous communities to safeguard a massive stretch of critical Amazon rainforest habitat by expanding Airo Pai Community Reserve by 1.3 million acres. Please click today help protect the mega-diverse forests of northwest Peru!

Help Save 40 Shelter Cats with Proven Training Techniques: Completed March 19, 2018

70,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

Shelters are loud, chaotic spaces, full of unfamiliar sights and smells. The stress of the environment leads shy cats to withdraw and hide, or act out their fear through aggression. And without sufficient activity and mental stimulation, many antsy cats become hyperactive — even destructive. The Cat Pawsitive program uses positive reinforcement training to build cats’ confidence, and help them find a loving home. Please click today to help “less adoptable” cats find their forever families!

Provide Job Training for Homeless Veterans: Completed March 16, 2018

45,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

Many homeless veterans need a little extra help to get their lives back on track. As Veterans Village of San Diego so eloquently puts it: “A hand up, not a hand out.” Occupational therapy helps keep injuries such as the loss of a limb from preventing meaningful employment. Vocational training teaches new job skills and helps veterans apply skills they learned in the military to civilian life. You can make a difference by clicking today to support programs that help veterans return to leading a normal life.

Sustainably Feed 36 Children in Haiti for a Whole Week: Completed March 14, 2018

45,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

In 2010 a terrible earthquake rocked the nation of Haiti; 220,000 people were killed and more than 300,000 people were injured. Many children lost their parents in the disaster, living in temporary homes that are overcrowded and understaffed. Many of these children still do not have secure access to food and have to rely on their schools to receive the only meals they get for the week. Your clicks today can help provide these meals so these children don’t have to wonder when their next meal will come.

Rescue Dogs from the Illegal Dog Meat Trade: Completed March 12, 2018

66,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

By building two shelters in Buriram, Thailand to care for dogs saved from the illegal meat trade, we’ve been able to help the thousands of dogs so far rescued rest comfortably, enjoy healthy meals, receive proper medical attention, and recover from their terrible ordeal. Several thousand more dogs still wait in overcrowded livestock facilities until more shelters can be built, and they too can be rescued into a life of comfort and safety. You can help. Your click today will help us to address this ongoing crisis and create a brighter future for these and future innocent victims of this cruel and illegal trade.
