Match for Confidence

1X your Donation = 2X Girls with Confidence

What is the “Match for Confidence”?

Every dollar counts! The Quest Foundation has generously offered to match dollar-for-dollar, meaning every dollar you donate will impact the lives of 2 young people. Your gift plus the match contributes to the $70,000 target that will go towards empowering young girls with confidence and knowledge.

The Match is a fundraising challenge, in support of Asante Africa’s Girls’ Advancement Program. The aim of the match is to empower girls in rural East Africa with confidence and skills for the 21st century. The match will run Feb 1 / Mar 1 2019. Our target is to raise $35,000 which will go towards supporting all aspects of our program. With your contribution we will be able to reach more girls across remote East Africa and teach them valuable life skills.

The Girls’ Advancement Program teaches both, girls and boys, skills in health and human rights, finance, communication, and more. Our data and stories demonstrate a direct impact on healthier choices, improved school attendance, academic performance, reduced early pregnancy and child marriage.
