Make an Endowment gift today: You will CHANGE these girls’ lives.

"You can give the most transformative gift possible – a quality education in a safe environment – to vulnerable girls in Tanzania. Imagine a 12 year old girl from a remote community, vulnerable to early pregnancy, a life of subservience and endless domestic chores. Now instead, she is given a chance to develop her mind and sense of self in the world and plan her future. She emerges confident and aware. She has a secondary education and her gateway to the world is now open…thanks to you." – Polly Dolan, Co-Founder

 Campaign Progress

The Endowment Campaign has started strong with 100% participation from Nurturing Minds' Board of Directors. Many other generous supporters have further supported the campaign and as of June 2019, the campaign has raised over $2 million, 44.9% toward the goal of $5 million. With your help, we can put the future in her hands by investing in lifetime opportunities for hundreds of girls in Tanzania.
