Achievement at a glance
The GIRLS! Project is currently on track for completion. In 2015, 1100 new books were distributed to our targeted audience of girls exposed to trauma in Philadelphia, PA and Sierra Leone, West Africa. The targeted audience of the GIRLS! Project was expanded to include girls orphaned by the 2014 Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone.
Challenges faced in implementation
Next steps include increasing employee work place giving and organizing a annual signature 5K walk/run to raise programmatic funds. The GIRLS! Project is on target for the 2016 goals as 2000 books were shipped to Sierra Leone in the first quarter of 2016. Expected distribution will take place in the third quarter of 2016.
