Provide the GGRF community with access to critical necessities during this time of need.
This is a critical time to support girls and women in Ethiopia. As COVID-19 forces 743 million girls out of school in 185 countries, the rising drop-out rates will disproportionately affect adolescent girls. This will only exacerbate gender gaps in education and lead to increased risk of sexual exploitation, early and unintended pregnancy, and child, early and forced marriage.
Help GGRF and our local partner organizations provide the resources and information families need to stay safe, healthy, and financially resilient.
We kindly ask you to join us in raising $1,500 in support of the GGRF community. Donate now to the GGRF COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund and provide the following for the GGRF community:
Increased Access to Hygiene Facilities and Materials: Increased provision of soap, access to safe hygiene facilities, and disbursement of sanitary pads. Local public health officers are present during the distribution of hygiene materials to provide awareness on how to protect oneself and one's community during this outbreak.
Free Lunches and Snacks: GGRF students will have access to our lunch program throughout the duration of school closures.
Savings Groups: The GGRF Savings Groups provide access to the groups' collective savings as well as grants and loans that are of critical importance at this time. All members will be able to access these resources at this time while observing best practices in social distancing.
Medical Subsidy: Students will continue to have access to a medical subsidy to cover any necessary medical costs during this time.
Thank you for investing in the resources girls and women need to protect themselves and provide for their communities in Ethiopia. #GivingTuesdayNow
