Team Up With GlobalGiving for Girls’ Education

Team up with GlobalGiving to support RAIN’s work for girls’ education in Niger, and you may win JetBlue tickets, a flip cam, or a Nike messenger bag!

It’s easy: decide your goal amount, fundraise with friends and family throughout September, and make the dream of opportunity for girls in rural Niger possible! Prizes will be awarded to the top three fundraisers, and your hard work can have an even greater impact: GlobalGiving is also offering $3,500 in awards to the organizations with the most successful fundraisers.

Help us give Nigerien girls a future by supporting important initiatives such as our mentoring program – keeping at-risk girls in school instead of an early marriage, or our learning center – a place for nomadic students to live and attend middle school. Visit our mentoring and learning center projects on

Our total goal in this month-long campaign is to raise $5,000.

  • A donation of $50 supplies books for 30 students.
  • $100 supports one student and her mentor for one year.
  • $1000 supports a student for one year in a learning center.

The goal you set for your fundraiser is up to you!

To say thank you, GlobalGiving will be giving away two JetBlue tickets to the fundraiser who raises the most funds and secures at least 10 unique donors during the month of September. This is a fun way to share your passion with others and multiply your impact for girls in Niger.
