COVID-19 is spreading and hurting communities all around the world. In Benin, the virus is also taking its toll on the most vulnerable. The Batonga Foundation is working hard with our network of local women mentors to ensure young women and girls, and their families, remain safe during this pandemic.
The pandemic is disproportionally affecting the lives of women and girls, especially those living in poverty. Girls and young women in Benin are facing increased risks due to economic insecurity and the social realities of this pandemic.
We need your support now more than ever before.
Batonga Foundation has established this emergency response fundraiser to raise the immediate funds necessary, from April to June 2020, to support our women-led response to stopping the spread of this virus throughout rural communities in Benin . Your donation will provide the 3,600 girls and young women Batonga serves, and their communities, with the information and supplies they need to protect themselves from COVID-19 and allow Batonga to continue to deliver our programming for the hardest-to-reach girls in these communities to protect their well-being during this increasingly dangerous time for women and girls.
Your donation today is 100% tax deductible. You will receive an email confirmation immediately after submitting your donation and will be sent a receipt for tax purposes.
The Batonga Foundation is a tax exempt organization, a status accorded under section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code - EIN 20-5927387
