Today we’re bringing you our latest programs update from #Senegal where we’ve joined forces with our partner @le_korsa to expand access to primary school education through the building of schools in the Tambacounda region. Read all about it at the link in our bio!📚✏️📓
This week in #Malawi we met Charity, a young entrepreneur who runs her own business growing tomatoes.🍅 She lost a portion of her crops when #CycloneIdai hit this past March. Through a micro loan she was able to repair her home and minimize long-term impact of the storm on her garden. 📷: @tomkucy
#Repost @badgalriri ・・・ With more protests planned for today, June 30, I send my ❤️ and I pray for the safety of the Sudanese people. They have a right to speak out and demand peace, justice, and a transition to civilian rule. Over 100 were killed and hundreds more were wounded during the June 3rd protests. Military rulers need to be held accountable. Praying for no more killings or abuse today. Fight for human rights in #Africa and stand with protesters in #Sudan. #BlueforSudan #IAmSudaneseRevolution #Watch_Sudan_on_June30th 💙🇸🇩💙🇸🇩💙 🙏🏿💪🏿🙏🏿💪🏿🙏🏿
#Repost @thegaia_malawi ・・・ GAIA is working to reach the @unaidsglobal goal of #909090. Our partnership with @claralionelfdn and @elizabethtayloraidsfoundation is instrumental in making this possible! With their support, women in Mulanje District have completed a certification training to conduct community based HIV testing and counseling services... but what these women now do on a day-to-day basis goes far beyond that! They are agents of change, and they are helping local communities create the future of #Malawi they dream of 🙌 #clf #etaf #gaia #globalhealth #communityhealth

I will never be able to thank The Clara Lionel Foundation enough for this stepping stone into college and adulthood. With the help to attend college, I am determined to continue to work towards my goals so that I can make a positive contribution to whichever society I will be called to serve and continue my service of giving back. - Gianna, #CLF Scholar #GlobalScholarshipProgram
I was also involved in several activities that made my experience so much more enjoyable. I was awarded the grand opportunity of visiting Uganda, Africa with other team members of the YAALI (Young African Leadership Initiative) Club at my college to partake in a research involving women and children. I enjoyed living amongst the locals and learning their lifestyle. My most important take-away from the whole experience is that we should not only learn to be content with what we have but to use our talents wisely to the glory of God even if it’s very little because He will give the increase. - Gianna, #CLF Scholar #GlobalScholarshipProgram
Hi Everyone! I am Gianna Daley from beautiful Kingston, #Jamaica. I am a sophomore, majoring in Clinical Laboratory Science with a minor in Spanish at #HowardUniversity.

We’re so excited to have one of our incredible Global Scholars sharing posts here over the next couple of days! Watch this space to get to know #CLF scholar Gianna & to learn more about our #GlobalScholarshipProgram please go to the link in our bio.📚🎓

#Repost @badgalriri: FLORIDA: You have the opportunity to make history this election. The US has only had four black Governors in its entire history, and we can help make #AndrewGillum the next one and Florida’s first! If you’re tired of feeling like you don’t matter in the political process, know the most important thing you can do in supporting a candidate is finding someone who will take on critical issues such as: making minimum wage a livable wage, paying teachers what their worth, ensuring criminal justice reform, making healthcare a right, and repealing Stand Your Ground. That’s a platform we MUST support. Let’s #bringithome, Florida. Vote @andrewgillum. And VOTE YES on Amendment 4 to restore voting rights to folks who have already paid their debt to society. VOTE on November 6th!
FLORIDA 🌴 Now’s your chance to return the right to vote to 1.5 MILLION people who are formerly incarcerated but have paid their debt. Florida is ONE OF THE ONLY STATES that ban people from voting forever. LET’S END THAT. VOTE YES on Amendment 4. More at the link in our bio. #YesOn4 🗳
#ElectionDay is just ONE week away on #November6. It’s time to stand up and make our voices heard. Check our stories this week for all the info. you need to vote next week.🗳

When girls receive an education, amazing things start to happen: poverty goes down. Economies grow. Families get stronger. Babies are born healthier. And the world, by all accounts, gets better. That’s why today on the International #DayoftheGirl, we’re proud to stand with @michelleobama to celebrate the launch of the @GlobalGirlsAlliance, a new program in support of adolescent girls’ education. Get involved—because the future of our world is only as bright as our girls. Follow @globalgirlsalliance to learn more! #GlobalGirlsAlliance
