Jambo! We are very excited to announce that we are participating in Giving Tuesday 2020!
Tomorrow, on December 1st, is Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement encouraging people to foster and celebrate generosity in any way possible. This year we are joining the movement to help women and girls in East Africa to achieve their dreams and shape their own future.
The Sasamani Foundation works to empower women and girls through providing sponsorships to students from the most vulnerable families, we provide dignified employment opportunities to tailors in the Bagamoyo area in Tanzania, and through our Women Leading Change program we support emerging women leaders to lead change.
"It is my dream to become a teacher. I want to help students to become successful in society."- Suzana, Sasamani Sponsored Student.
Will you empower women and students in East Africa on Giving Tuesday?
Donations at any level have an immediate positive impact. And on Giving Tuesday your donation can even have a bigger, positive impact! Facebook will match $7 million USD in donations made to qualifying nonprofits, like Sasamani, starting December 1st at 8 am ET.
"The income I earned through Sasamani has given me confidence in satisfying my needs, for example I managed to renovate my working place."- Tatu, Sasamani Tailor
Proceeds will go towards our goal this year to provide holistic sponsorships for 73 students, dignified employment opportunities to the tailors in Bagamoyo and to the Women Leading Change program.
"Even being a leader for so many years, I was able to change the way I lead other people, organizations, and started my own businesses."- Mama Thea, WLC Graduate and Coach.
