In war-torn Afghanistan, you’re helping to give girls living in rural areas a brighter future by improving their access to quality education. On the Thai-Myanmar border, you’re providing Burmese refugees with small business and farming skills to support themselves until it is safe to return home. And in drought-stricken Zimbabwe, your gifts are reaching vulnerable farmers with innovative new techniques so they can grow enough food to feed their families, even when the rains fail.
