“I want to teach other girls to continue their educations so they’ll be independent, like me, and have a good life,” says Mamta, one of 250 Indian girls pursuing higher #education: http://bit.ly/1SpH3D9

#WorldMalariaDay: Lindah, 26, sells lagalagala — a cake made from cassava and maize flours and bananas — in her village. "I am working longer today because I need more money," she says. "We just came back from the hospital yesterday. My baby was admitted for three weeks because he had #malaria."

Anastasia is an adorable 8-year-old who received a princess book and a fluffy pet pillow — all from her generous sponsor. Check out how ChildFund's Just Read! program gives #kids in the U.S.’s poorest communities a chance to discover the joy of #reading: http://bit.ly/1VqpUvj

As we talked about earlier this week, if you’re a champion for #kids#education, they can have benefits over a lifetime — including a #healthy, successful future.
Pezzo, a 14-year-old girl in #Zambia, found a champion in her sponsor.

“My sponsor is a woman who has achieved so much,” Pezzo says. “In all her letters, she says school is important if I want to be someone in life — that is why I work so hard so I can achieve my dream of being an accountant.” If you haven’t joined the conversation yet, please share who helped #MakeADifference in your life: http://bit.ly/1T3bACS

Not enough food. No money for school. Constantly worried. These are the challenges Kefyalech and her #family of six are facing during a massive #food shortage in #Ethiopia. “I’m afraid of tomorrow because I have nothing,” she says. “I’m worried for my daughter. I’m scared. What if I don’t get support from ChildFund? I don’t know what is waiting for me tomorrow.” Learn more about her story and the drought happening right now in Ethiopia: http://bit.ly/1SUFyih

Meet Halko, mother of precious 5-month-old Fentale. He is suffering from severe acute malnutrition because of a massive #food shortage caused by a two-year drought in #Ethiopia. Because Halko doesn’t have enough to #eat either, she struggles to consistently breastfeed her son. Without her milk, Fentale cries from hunger throughout the night and can’t be comforted. Please act now to help fill their plates with enough food to satisfy their hunger: www.childfund.org/ethiopia-food-shortage-52784/

#EcuadorEarthquake Update: Fortunately, the number of children and families affected in our program areas was very small, and they have been provided with clean #water, #food, mattresses and hygiene kits.

ChildFund also is coordinating with ChildFund Alliance partner Educo and corporate partner Proctor & Gamble, which is donating enough water purification supplies to provide 1 million liters of clean water. Learn more: http://bit.ly/1VON6UG
