Bupilo Foundation Succeeds in GlobalGiving’s Accelerator, Becomes Recognized Partner of GlobalGiving
Bupilo Foundation 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, Bupilo Foundation successfully raised $5,235 from 66 unique individual donors to support their project, “#EndMenstrualAbsenteeism for 300 Girls in Mkushi.”
“We’re thrilled to have Bupilo Foundation as part of our community. Bupilo Foundation 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 Bupilo Foundation, knowing that they’ll get regular updates about how their donations are put to work.”
“On average, Zambian rural girls miss about 10% of school days annually due to lack of menstrual supplies. This issue is worse in villages like Mkushi where girls miss up to 20% of school, often missing exams or performing poorly as a result of their absenteeism during their period. The Basizana Project aims to address this issue by providing sustainable menstrual cups to a total of 300 girls at Kandawo Secondary School in Mkushi, thus eliminating menstrual absenteeism in the school.”, said Thokozile Tembo, project director at Bupilo Foundation. “Visit The Basizana Project to learn how even $10 can make a difference: We’re $765 away from our overall goal of $6,000.”
